Your most recent heating bill may have been a shocker, with fuel prices rising and your furnace struggling to keep up. Turning down the thermostat may save money, but is it really worth sacrificing your family’s comfort?
There’s no need to be uncomfortable this winter when highly efficient heating options are available. Kearney HVAC can show you how to save money on heating and cooling with super-efficient heat pump technology for your North Shore MA or Seacoast NH home.
Why Is My Heat Bill So High?
This winter, heating costs have really skyrocketed due to rising fuel costs. Compounded with labor shortages and supply chain issues, fossil fuels like natural gas and fuel oil are at a premium right now. Combine that with the likelihood that your present furnace is a bit long in the tooth, and your home’s energy efficiency is probably not as good as it could be.
Kearney HVAC is always looking for ways to help customers save money on heating bills, and the solution for your home may be a heat pump.
How do Heat Pumps Work?
Heat pumps work differently than traditional furnaces or boilers. Heat pumps are powered by electricity, but take mere sips of power to move heat to where it is needed.
Traditional heating sources generally work on a two-way switch—on at full blast until the temperature is reached, then off. Heat pumps use variable speed fans to consume just the right amount of energy to reach the desired temperature. In the winter, heat pumps extract trace amounts of heat from outside air (even if it’s freezing outside!) and move it inside to heat your home’s interior.
One added benefit of heat pumps is that heat pumps provide cooling in the summer by reversing direction and moving inside heat outside.
What Kinds of Heat Pumps are Available?
There are two types of heat pumps used in residential settings. While early versions of heat pumps had difficulty performing in colder climates, Mitsubishi Electric’s heat pump technology is designed to perform efficiently in cold weather at temperatures as low as -13°F.
What type of heat pump is right for your home?
These whole-house Mitsubishi Electric ducted heat pumps connected directly to your home’s existing ductwork to provide cozy heat in the winter and cooling in the summer. The heat pump itself is a larger unit that is positioned on the exterior of the home.
Like the name implies, Mitsubishi Electric’s ductless mini-splits use small diameter tubing to connect the exterior heat pump unit to interior air handling units. One of the top benefits to mini-split heat pump installation is their flexibility—they can heat one room, or a few strategically positioned air handlers can condition the air of a whole house.
