Why Install A Heat Pump?
- You’ll only need one heating and cooling system instead of two. Rather than having an air conditioner for summer and a furnace for winter, heat pumps keep you comfortable whether it’s hot outside or cold.
- Heat pumps are “greener” and more economical than furnaces. Rather than burning fuels like oil or gas to create heat, they use electricity to move heat from one place to another. This process is cheaper than burning fuel, and most people see a corresponding reduction in utility bills. Heat pumps can deliver the same degree of indoor comfort as air conditioners and furnaces, but the operational costs can be 30 to 75 percent less.
- Heat pumps can economically heat hot tubs, hot water heaters and swimming pools. This can reduce utility bills as well.
- Heat pumps perform very well in moderate climates like Columbia, SC, where the summers are hot and the winters are mild. In climates with severe, extreme winters, however, a furnace would be a better option.
- Heat pumps reduce indoor humidity more efficiently than central air conditioners. This means greater indoor comfort at a lower monthly price.
- Mini-split heat pumps can be used in homes that don’t have preexisting duct work. Installing a mini-split heat pump or air conditioner may be a more cost effective option over the construction costs of installing ductwork.
- Cool or heat only the rooms you use. With a zoned mini-split system, you can condition the air in specific rooms without heating and cooling the entire house. This can greatly reduce your utility bills.
- You can qualify for a 30 percent tax rebate. When you purchase a geothermal heat pump installation from Cool Care Heating & Air, you’ll qualify for a tax rebate of 30 percent with no limits. This can reduce installation costs considerably.
