Heat pumps are the choice of the future for California homeowners as gas furnaces are being banned in the Bay Area beginning in 2027. Fortunately, heat pumps efficiently heat and cool homes, so they’re not only a good option to save money on utility costs, they’re also better for the environment. If you’re having to replace your heating and cooling in your home, here’s why you should consider a Mitsubishi heat pump installation.
How Does a Heat Pump Work?
Furnaces work like bonfires. They burn fossil fuels to heat the air around it. A heat pump moves heat around to either cool the air or heat up the air. In the winter, the heat pump absorbs heat from outside and transfers it into the home for a warmer temperature inside. In the summer, the heat pump pushes the heat from inside the home to the outside, which cools the home.
Mitsubishi Heat Pump Installation Has Many Benefits
Why Would a Homeowner Want a Heat Pump?
- A heat pump is more efficient than a furnace. Most experts cite heat pumps at least 2 times as efficient as a furnace. The heat pump works better than a furnace.
- Heat pumps reduce emissions by 40% to 50% over a furnace. As the technology evolves, it’s going to get even better.
- The Bay Area’s climate is perfect for a heat pump. The heat pump won’t work as well in cooler climates.
Even though installation may cost more than a furnace, there are many rebates and incentives offered by federal, state, and local authorities to offset the cost of installing the heat pump.
