If you are wondering what the best HVAC unit for your home in Charleston, consider a heat pump! Heat pumps are commonly used in subtropical climates like South Carolina where the temperature rarely drops below freezing. Contrary the misleading name, heat pumps can provide both heating and cooling. “Heat” in the name refers to its action of transferring heat rather than producing it.

How Do Heat Pumps Work?

Unlike most heating options, heat pumps do not create heat. In the winter, heat pumps redistribute heat from the outdoor air or ground and transfer the heat inside. Even when it is cold outside, there is still heat energy in the air. In the summer, the process runs in reverse. Heat pumps redistribute heat indoors and move it outside.

The main types of heat pumps are air, water, and ground sources. While all have their differences in operation, they all move heat from one location to another. All types operate by an indoor handler and outdoor unit connected by refrigerant lines. Other main components include the evaporator, compressor, condenser, and expansion valve.

What Are The Benefits Of A Heat Pump?

Heat pumps can provide your home an array of benefits and keep your home comfortable year round. Below we have listed five of the many advantages of heat pumps.

  • Energy Efficient
  • Environmentally Friendly
  • Provides Heating and Cooling Options
  • Minimal Maintenance
  • Quiet Operation

Energy Efficient

Due to transferring heat rather than generating it, heat pumps consume less energy than other heating options. According to Energy Star, air source heat pumps, which are the most common type, can reduce electricity use for heating by 50% when compared to other heating units.

Environmentally Friendly

Heat pumps can reduce a homeowner’s carbon footprint. Heat pumps do not require fossil fuels to generate heat, which reduces carbon emissions released into the environment. Installing a heat pump will help fight the climate crisis while keeping your home comfortable!

Provides Heating And Cooling

Heat pumps can both heat and cool your home, which provides many benefits on its own. The two-in-one system saves the trouble of purchasing and maintaining two separate units. Additionally, heat pumps provide flexibility with weather fluctuations.

Minimal Maintenance

Heat pumps need to be serviced once a year, whereas air conditioners and other heating units require maintenance separately. According to Energy Star, the energy consumption difference between well maintained heat pumps and ignored ones range between 10-25%. An Anchor Heating And Air technician can repair and maintain any brand and type of heat pump!

Quiet Operation

Heat pumps are generally quieter than other heating units. Due to the device being placed outside, you may experience less noises heard inside your home!
