Heating and Cooling Quick Facts


Heat Pumps

Ivan II removing old heat pump

-Heat pumps use electricity as their energy source, making them a more    energy efficient option than a furnace and air conditioner.

-Heat pump systems move heat rather than generate heat, which means they can supply 4 times the amount of enery they consume.

-Heat pumps can be used for both the heating and cooling of your home.

-In the warmer seasons, the heat pump moves heat from your house into the outdoors; during the colder seasons, the heat pump brings in heat from the outdoors and into your house.

Interesting Fact: Even a day as cold as 32º Fahrenheit produces enough heat to warm a home via a heat pump.


Furnaces

-Furnaces combust natural gas in order to generate heat in your home. Newer high efficiency models can save you up to 30% per month on your energy bill and emit far less carbon dioxide into atmosphere.*

-The heat produced from this combustion in the furnace’s burner is then passed through the heat exchanger, which warms the air from your home’s return air duct.

-The furnace’s blower then blows the warmed air through your air ducts which distributes the warmed air throughout your home.

-In warmer temperatures, the furnace’s blower motor works to distribute air cooled by the evaporator coil throughout your home.

 

 

*Lesser efficiency furnaces emit approximately 4 tons of carbon dioxide per month
