Heating…with Cold Air?

How about heating with cool air? Can this be done? One device that has proven itself an economic alternative to traditional heating and cooling systems is a heat pump. Is it right for you?

  1. Heat pumps are most economical when they can be used year round for heating and cooling.
  2. The efficiency of a heat pump varies with the outdoor temperature. When the outdoor temperature drops below 30 degrees, the heat pump must be supplemented with a heating system such as electric heating.
  3. Also, when the temperature drops below freezing, ice can form on the heat exchange coil of the heat pump.
  4. A heat pump can cost a bit more to install than a conventional heating and cooling system.
  5. If you have natural gas available, it may make sense to use it for heating. Natural gas is often more efficient and less expensive.
