The climate in the San Diego area, though mild, can become a little too cool or too warm for your preferences, so you may have separate heating and air conditioning in your home or office. If you’re thinking about upgrading your heating and cooling system, consider a heat pump. A single system provides both heating and cooling for your indoor environment, supply you with year-round comfort.
Be Comfortable All Year
Unlike a furnace or air conditioner, a heat pump can both warm up and cool down your indoor environment. Depending on the season, a heat pump can move warmer air inside during cooler months or move warm air outside when the temperature rises, acting as either a heating or cooling system without the need to install two separate systems. While there are different types available, an air-to-air model makes it possible to use your current ductwork, potentially saving time and labor costs during heat pump installation.
Enjoy Efficiency and Energy Savings
Although heat pumps use electricity, only a small amount is required because these systems work by transferring warm air, rather than heating or cooling it, into or out of your indoor areas, allowing heat pumps to provide up to three times the amount of heat energy that they need to run. This can help to save you money on energy costs and reduce your carbon footprint. Additionally, since heat pumps consist of only one system to both heat and cool your home or office, there is only one system to repair or maintain.
