If last winter you noticed that your heating system wasn’t as efficient as it once was, or requiring more repairs than years prior, it may be time to consider a new one before this winter begins. When you decide to invest in a high-efficiency heating system, either a high-efficiency heat pump or a high-efficiency furnace, it comes with several benefits for your home and your comfort. If you’re wondering what benefits come from a high-efficiency heating system, and which one is right for your home, you’ve come to the right place.
A High-Efficiency Heat Pump vs. A High-Efficiency Furnace
The first step in investing in a high-efficiency heating system is to figure out what system is right for your home. A furnace is a heating system that produces its own heated air, then works with the preexisting ductwork in your home to disperse it throughout your home. A high-efficiency furnace will not only provide better overall heating performance, but are also quieter than older models and can improve indoor air quality with the use of advanced filtration systems that can remove mold, dust and other airborne irritants.
A heat pump is a system that can provide energy efficient heating and cooling and is a great solution for keeping your home comfortable while lowering your energy bills. A Heat pump works by extracting the heat from the air outside, bringing it into your home and dispersing it through internal units located inside. Heat pumps are particularly versatile as they come in a variety of system designs, some ductless and some ducted. Ducted heat pumps connect to ductwork to deliver efficient heating and cooling throughout the home. Rather than using air ducts, ductless heat pumps use wall, floor, or ceiling mounted indoor units. Each indoor unit is connected directly to the outdoor unit without any ductwork, hence the term “ductless.”
Often the choice between a heat pump or a furnace comes down to personal preference and the size and build of your home. The best way to choose between the two is to consult one of our experts who can recommend the right system for you, your budget, and your home.
Lower Monthly Utility Bills
There are several benefits to investing in a high-efficiency heating system, but the most enticing reason for many Canadian households is the decreased cost of utility bills. High-efficiency heating systems save more energy and are far less likely to waste heat than a lower-efficiency model. Watch your monthly utility bills immediately decline after the installation of a high-efficiency system.
Longer System Lifespan
One of the many benefits of installing a high-efficiency heating system in your home is the system’s elongated lifespan. A high-efficiency system will perform fewer cycles throughout its lifetime, meaning it will experience significantly less wear and tear than an older, less-efficient one. You can rest easy knowing that your heating system is going to be there for the long haul!
Less Maintenance And Fewer Repairs
High-efficiency furnaces and heat pumps are more durable and reliable than they’ve ever been. With a new high-efficiency heating system, you’ll notice you need far less maintenance and fewer repairs than your current system while providing your home with better air quality and more powerful and consistent heating.
