Need New Heating for Your Home? Consider a Heat Pump.

outdoor kid at playIf you’ve been considering installing a new heating system in your home, you may be wondering what the best type of equipment might be. Today, there are many more options available than in the past, many of which are built to perform in a highly efficient, effective manner. One type of system that many homeowners are choosing to install are heat pump systems.

Heat pumps have risen in popularity over the years, and not only with homeowners. Many environmental scientists are seeing the benefits of choosing heat pumps over traditional, fossil fuel systems. Because of this, the government has been encouraging the installation of ENERGY STAR-approved heat pump systems by way of additional incentives to homeowners who make the switch. In this article, we’ll discuss the benefits of choosing a heat pump system for your home, and how Empire can help.

5 Benefits of a Heat Pump System

Want to learn more about the reasons why installing a heat pump in your home might be a great choice? Below, learn more about just a few of the benefits a heat pump system can offer:

  1. Energy Efficiency: One of the main benefits of a heat pump system is that they’re highly energy efficient. A heat pump system is estimated to help many homeowners save up to 40 percent on their energy bills. Most people who install a heat pump notice savings on their utility bills almost immediately.
  2. Clean Heating: Because they don’t require fossil fuel in order to operate, heat pump systems offer much cleaner heating. There is no odor from oil or propane, no need for a tank, and no worries about leaks or spills that can occur with other heating equipment. Not to mention, they’re much better for the environment.
  3. Heating and Cooling Capability: Not only do heat pumps provide your home with efficient, clean heat, but they can also help you stay cool in the summer. How? Heat pumps provide all-in-one heating and cooling by extracting heat from the air. In the cooler months, heat is extracted from outdoor air and pumped into your home. The process is reversed in the summer months.
  4. Quiet Operation: When compared to traditional heating and air conditioning systems, heat pumps generally provide quieter operation. So, not only can they improve the climate of your home; they can make your home more enjoyable and relaxing because you won’t have to listen to them operating day and night.
  5. Federal Tax Credits: According to ENERGY STAR, “Under the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022, federal income tax credits for energy efficiency home improvements will be available through 2032.” A broad selection of ENERGY STAR-certified equipment is eligible for the tax credits, including heat pump systems – and that can help you save money, both upfront and on future energy bills.
