Keep Your Cool with a Heat Pump this Summer!

Are you an Edmonton homeowner looking for a smarter way to keep your home comfortable during the scorching summer months? Look no further than the revolutionary Heat Pump system! As the go-to choice for savvy homeowners in Edmonton, Heat Pump Systems are changing the game when it comes to efficient home climate control. 

Understanding the Difference: Heat Pump vs. Air Conditioner.

Curious about how a heat pump differs from a traditional air conditioner? Essentially, a heat pump is an air conditioner with an extra trick up its sleeve—it can work in reverse! While an air conditioner is adept at removing heat from your home, a heat pump can both remove heat in the summer and provide warmth in the winter by reversing its operation.

How Does It Work?

Much like the mechanics of an air conditioner, a heat pump utilizes a compressor to circulate refrigerant between an outdoor condensing unit and an indoor evaporative coil. During the cooling process, heat is absorbed from inside your home and expelled outside. In winter, this process is reversed, extracting heat from the outdoor air and transferring it indoors to keep you cozy.

Heat pumps are more efficient than other heating systems and generally produce around three times more energy than they take in. 

Addressing Concerns: Cold Weather Performance.

One common misconception is that heat pumps aren’t suitable for colder climates like Edmonton. However, advancements in technology have led to the development of Cold Climate Air Source Heat Pumps (CCASHP) that excel even in sub-zero temperatures. Unlike traditional models that lose efficiency in extreme cold, CCASHPs maintain peak performance, ensuring your comfort year-round. 

Another way to compensate for colder climates is by combining the strengths of a heat pump with those of a gas furnace. This innovative setup ensures reliable heating, regardless of outdoor temperatures, providing peace of mind for Edmonton homeowners.

Cost-Efficiency and Environmental Benefits.

Investing in a heat pump may seem daunting, but with the energy-efficient capabilities of a heat pump, it often pays off in the long run. Since they run on electricity, heat pump systems are always working at 100% efficient, because they’re using 100% of the heat produced!

Another great and efficient feature of a heat pump is that they often have a coefficient rating that is over 300%. This means that every kilowatt of energy used, it produces 3 times that amount of energy. A great resource to learn more about how the efficiency of a heat pump system works is available here on the Government of Canada’s website.

Plus, with lower energy consumption compared to traditional heating and cooling systems, heat pumps are not only eco-friendly but also help reduce your utility bills over time.
