It takes a lot to make your home function and there are many decisions to be made. Winnipeg Supply Service Experts is here to assist in making one of those decisions a simpler one: heat pump versus furnace.
How do you get started? With where you live.
A heat pump and furnace can both provide heat to your home but a heat pump operates best when the standard winter temperature is above 50 degrees Fahrenheit, like in Florida or Southern California. If you live in an area with harsh winters or where the average winter temperature is below 50 degree Fahrenheit, like New York or Montana, a furnace is your best course of action.
No matter where you live, you can always have a furnace because a furnace will heat your home regardless of the weather conditions outside; however, a heat hump removes heat from the air outside your home, and brings it into your home. This is why when temperatures start to drop beneath 50 degrees Fahrenheit, it becomes harder for a heat pump to produce enough heat to your home to keep you warm and comfortable.
If you currently live in a region where you could go with either a heat pump or a furnace, there are a couple things to consider. Heat pumps are incredibly energy efficient since they use electricity to transfer heat from one zone to another and do not actually have to create heat themselves. They simply move heat that already exists from one place to another, such as from outside your home to inside your home.
A furnace may sometimes be less costly to install but tends to cost more to use due to the cost of fuel while heat pumps can be a higher investment price but cost less over time.
