A heat pump is an energy-efficient way to heat and cool your home. It uses less energy than a traditional furnace or air conditioner, and can save you money on your utility bills. Heat pumps also help to improve the indoor air quality of your home by circulating fresh, clean air, without the need to burn gas.

Heat pumps are more affordable than traditional HVAC.

If you’re looking for an affordable and energy-efficient heating and cooling solution for your home, a heat pump is a great option. Heat pumps are much more efficient than traditional HVAC units, so they’ll save you money on your energy bills in the long run. Plus, installation is typically less expensive than other types of systems.

Heat pumps come in a range of models and styles to suit almost every household budget. Many ductless heat pump packages, for instance, start at just $4000. Even without the government energy efficiency and manufacturer rebates of up to $14,000 you will have a heating and cooling system that matches (or beats) the price of any other heating solution, including high efficiency gas furnaces. Plus, you get the added benefits of air conditioning in the summer, a lighter carbon impact, and lower heating bills.

Enjoy monthly utility savings with the use of a heat pump.

A heat pump can help you save money on your monthly utility bills. By using the natural heat from the ground or air, a heat pump can provide efficient heating and cooling for your home. Additionally, a heat pump can help reduce your carbon footprint by using less energy than traditional heating and cooling systems.

According to U.S and Canadian Data, you may be able to reduce your space heating bills by up to 50% if you convert from an electric furnace to an air-source heat pump. If you get a heat pump, and keep it at the same temperature that you have your baseboards set at, you would see greater savings. However, we see our customers setting their heat or cooling to their comfort level and still experience great savings. 

For oil and gas conversions, your savings will fluctuate with the cost of fossil fuel prices, but our customers report consistent savings of 30% to 50% depending on the efficiency of their current heating system.

Summer cooling with a new heat pump.

In addition to tackling heating needs during St. Louis’s winter, heat pumps sufficiently cool your home as well. It uses the same technology as your air conditioner, but it works in reverse to draw heat out of your home and into the outdoors. Heat pumps have just as much cooling power as central air conditioners because they work in the same way. As the unit pulls air into the system, it passes over the indoor coils containing refrigerant. Here, the air is cooled and then pushed into your home’s air ducts. This process gives you plenty of cooling capacity during summer temperatures and helps to keep your home cooler and more comfortable during those sunny summer days.
