When it comes to deciding an efficient heating option, homeowners often get overwhelmed because of availability of various heating solutions such as heat pumps, central heating systems, boilers, electric space heater, pellet stoves, etc. Out of these many options, heat pump’s popularity has dramatically risen over years.

Not only do heat pumps boast for high energy efficiency ratings, they are practical, convenient and environmentally friendly to use. In addition, they can also be used for cooling in summer, dehumidifying, air filtration, etc. Many consumer advocacy groups and government agencies also endorse heat pumps to be the most efficient heating option.

Here are some of the key benefits of heat pumps

Energy efficiency

With achieving an average COP (Coefficient of Performance) figures of four or more, many energy efficiency conservation agencies has identified heat pumps as the most efficient form of heating with between 300% to 400% efficiency. This means they only use an average of less than 1 kilowatt to achieve four kilowatts of heating or cooling, while also making it cheaper to run as well.

Comfort control and convenience

Heat pumps spread the warmed air with the use of a fan, making the heating dispersed more evenly than any other heating options. Your can have a precise indoor comfort control in a single touch of a button with a heat pump. Once reaching your desired comfortable temperature, it will automatically maintain that temperature without continuing for more heat. Some heating appliances, on the other hand, continue heating resulting in an unfavorable indoor temperature. Heat pump also allows you to pre-program the start up or turn off schedules that suit you.

The fire services always suggest children, furniture, clothing be at least a meter away from fires or heaters. However, heat pumps, unlike many heating options including electric heater, gas burners, have no hot surfaces or flames and hence they are absolutely safe for children as well.

Improved Air Quality

Most heat pumps can improve your indoor air quality by getting rid of nasty allergens through advanced air filtration system. They can remove airborne particles and provide maximum air quality that is vital for allergy and asthma sufferers.

Cooling in summer
