Heat pumps in Michigan? Absolutely. At Great Dane Heating and Air Conditioning, we work with heat pumps on a consistent basis here in the Metro Detroit area. Our professionals repair, install, and maintain more heat pumps than ever before. These heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems are growing in popularity because of their versatility and efficiency.
How Heat Pumps Are Different
Heat pumps are both versatile and efficient because as one system, they can serve as both heater and cooler in your home. You don’t require separate equipment for your heating and cooling needs. Heat pumps can switch back and forth to serve both, depending on the need. They are different than a traditional forced-air heating system in that they operate like an air conditioner, transferring heat from one location to another.
When it comes to heating your Clinton Township home, heat pumps actually transfer the heat from outdoors to your indoors. Contrast this to the traditional forced-air heating system that uses fossil energy to create heat and then circulates that throughout your home.
And when you want your home cooled, heat pumps work in reverse by transferring the warm air from inside your home to the outdoors, leaving you with only the cool air inside.
Heat pumps take their energy from either the air, water, or ground, depending on the type of pump. This energy usage is what makes heat pumps highly efficient and environmentally friendly.
Since we do live in Michigan where the temperatures can dip into single digits in the winter, you will need an auxiliary heat source for your heat pump, as heat pumps do not function well in outdoor temperatures below 40 degrees Fahrenheit. A furnace or boiler is recommended for those days your heat pump needs some help.
How Heat Pumps Can Benefit You
There are significant benefits to having a heat pump as part of your home’s HVAC system. One of these benefits is its energy efficiency. Unlike a more-traditional heating system, a heat pump does not burn fossil fuel. Instead it transfers heat, in both instances of heating and cooling, making its energy consumption extremely low and its efficiency very clean. It actually creates up to three times more energy than it expends. This directly translates to energy savings for you.
Another cost-savings benefit for you with a heat pump is its installation convenience. Since a heat pump is both heating and cooling in one package, you save on the expense of purchasing separate units. Also, since there are fewer components to install, your installation costs are typically less.
