Fall weather has arrived and that calls for some chilly mornings and more and more people in Oregon are using their heating system to stay warm now! Is your heating system up to the task? Or maybe it’s time to think about getting a new system in place for the upcoming fall and winter months of bitterly cold days. A heat pump is a great solution. Here’s how a heat pump can help you stay warm this season.
What’s a heat pump?
A ducted heat pump uses an outdoor unit that pulls heat from outside air and moves it inside. Even thought it might seem unlikely, when the temperature is cold, there is still heat in the air! The fans deliver warm air through your ducts and your home will stay warm and comfortable. If the weather is warm outside, it unit will also provide air conditioning – pulling the cool air inside during the hot summer days. One unit can provide year-round comfort with the use of your existing duct work! A heat pump works in conjunction with your gas or electric furnace as back up heat.
What are the benefits of a heat pump?
There are many benefits to installing a heat pump in your home.
- Continual comfort: no matter what the weather is doing outside, a heat pump will provide year-round heating or cooling
