7 Reasons Why You Should Install a Heat Pump in Your Home

A heat pump makes a great addition to your heating and cooling system. This system offers an energy-efficient alternative to air conditioners and furnaces. Heat pumps utilize electricity in order to transfer heat from a cool area to a warm area, which makes the cool space cooler and the warm space warmer, according to Energy.gov. Because they transfer heat instead of generating heat, heat pumps can more efficiently provide consistent, comfortable temperatures throughout your home.

If you have been considering a heat pump but don’t know much about them, we are here to give you seven reasons why you should install one in your home. Here we will go over the biggest benefits of heat pumps and why they would make a good addition to your Lewisville home.

1.    Heat Pumps Are Energy Efficient

Heat pumps move air from one place to another. In cooler months, they take the warmth out of the outside air and move it indoors. The process is reversed in the summer. This saves on energy use, which lowers your monthly energy bills year round. Who doesn’t want to save money?

In addition, because heat pumps are essentially a two-in-one system, you can enjoy those savings every month of the year.

2.    Heat Pumps Are a Two-in-One System

As said above, you get two systems in one when you install a heat pump in your home. They operate not only as your home’s source for cooling but for heating as well. This two-in-one system works best in mild climates, particularly those with mild winters like we have here in Texas. With a heat pump, you don’t have to hassle with the expense and upkeep of a separate air conditioner and furnace.

3.    Heat Pumps Improve Indoor Air Quality

Heat pumps will circulate and mix the outside air with the inside air, which boosts the quality of air inside your house. With regular filter changes, upkeep, and maintenance, your heat pump gives your home cleaner, fresher-smelling air that keeps you and your family healthy all year long. Cleaner air quality reduces allergens in the home that can trigger allergies and asthma, such as difficulty breathing, itchy eyes and runny noses.

4.    Heat Pumps Give You Consistent Heating and Cooling

Heat pumps are great at providing uniform, consistent heating that infiltrates all rooms of the house. Contrast that with traditional HVAC units, which can generate uneven temperatures due to factors such as lack of maintenance or improper sizing. This allows heat pumps to give you more comfort inside your home without the uneven heating or cooling that can come with traditional systems.

5.    Heat Pumps Don’t Use Gas

While a gas furnace can generate and distribute heat at a faster rate than electric appliances can, gas furnaces can emit toxic gas leaks that can result in fires or explosions. When you invest in a heat pump that runs on electricity instead, you are doing your part to protect your family from health issues and possible carbon monoxide poisoning.

6.    Heat Pumps Are Quiet

Heat pumps don’t make as much noise as traditional HVAC systems, meaning you can enjoy a quieter and more peaceful living space. That’s because the system’s compressor is located outside so you don’t hear a lot of the noise that’s generated.

7.    Heat Pumps Require Minimal Maintenance


Heat pumps do not need a lot of upkeep, cleaning and maintenance like traditional systems do. Of course, they can benefit from an annual cleaning and inspection to make sure they’re working correctly and can handle your comfort needs, but that’s about it. If you’re handy, you can do this inspection and cleaning yourself. If not, it’s always best to hire a heat pump expert in Lewisville who can provide a multi-step checklist inspection for optimal results.
