Spring is here and while many of us are required to stay indoors for the next several weeks because of COVID-19, it’s time to start planning ahead for the warm summer months. You might still be using your furnace for heat right now, but soon you will need to think about what you will do to cool your home when the weather warms up. If you don’t have a reliable cooling system in place, a heat pump or air conditioner are two options for you. Get ready to ditch your bulky window air conditioning unit and upgrade your system. Wondering what the differences are between an air conditioner and a heat pump?
Heat Pumps Versus Air Conditioners
Both systems use indoor and outdoor coils that transfer refrigerant. The air conditioners will absorb heat that passes over the internal indoor coils. That means hot hair is pushed out of your ductwork and cool air is pumped in. On the other hand, a heat pump will work for both heating and cooling. That means during the winter you can use it to heat your home and, in the summer, you can use it for air conditioning. That’s right – heating and cooling in one system. Ductless heat pumps are great for homes that do not have traditional ducting systems and they are incredibly energy efficient. Ductless systems can also help improve indoor air quality and they are ideal for setting different temperature zones within the same living space.
