Advice from Your HVAC Contractors: When a Heat Pump is a Good IdeaPosted by February 2nd, 2015
As your HVAC contractors, we are here to guide you regarding your building’s heating system. If you are on the market for a new one, you may want to consider a heat pump. Although heat pumps do have their limitations, one of these systems may be a beneficial option if certain circumstances are present.
- Limited Space- One of the main benefits of heat pumps is that they don’t require an inordinate amount of space. If having enough room is an issue on your property, using a heat pump instead of an HVAC system can save your business space and money.
- Electricity is Preferable to Gas- If your building is located in an area where natural gas is limited, scarce, or even extremely expensive, a heat pump may be a more affordable and convenient option. However, even if the supply of natural gas isn’t an issue, it may be worth looking further into this subject and comparing the relative costs of gas and electricity in your area.
- You Want to be Environmentally Conscious- When natural gas is burned, it produces carbon monoxide, which is a greenhouse gas. In comparison, heat pumps use electricity, which produces a much cleaner and eco-friendly byproduct. If you desire to reduce your property’s carbon footprint, as your HVAC contractors, we recommend further looking into a heat pump.
If you are interested in the idea of a heat pump instead of an HVAC system to heat your property, our HVAC contractors are more than happy to discuss your business’ needs with you and determine if this is the right solution for you.
