Regulating comfort in your Tullahoma, Tennessee, from season to season can be difficult. The modern heat pump is one of the most versatile HVAC systems you’ll find for keeping your home comfortable in winter and summer. Learn about four ways that the built-in versatility of this technology can benefit you and your family.
May Be Sourced or Powered in Different Ways
Heat pumps use reversible HVAC technology, so the same unit can be used to warm and cool your home. A heat pump is also more energy efficient than conventional HVAC systems.
This state-of-the-art HVAC technology comes in a few basic system types: air-source and geothermal. Geothermal models may be either ground- or water-source systems. Additionally, these systems may be gas-fired units — known as absorption models — or traditional electricity-powered models. These varied technologies give homeowners greater latitude in selecting just the right product for their needs.
Available in Ducted & Ductless Models
Air-source models may be ducted or ductless. For homes with existing ductwork, the ducted models are easy to install and can provide year-round comfort. For homes without existing ductwork, ductless models provide a practical alternative that’s also high in energy efficiency.
A Heat Pump Works Well in a Variety of Climates
Years ago, this technology worked more effectively and provided greater energy efficiency in milder climates. However, the technology has improved to such a degree that today’s geothermal systems operate just as effectively in extremely cold climates as they do in more moderate ones. This means that many homeowners who were unable to consider a reversible system as a viable option in the past can now make it an important part of their energy-saving indoor comfort strategy.
