Heat pumps are an excellent way to heat your home and save money on your utility bills. They are very effective in both cold and warm climates. In a colder climate like Allentown’s, the heat pumps do well to keep your home warm.
Allentown averages a low temperature of 22 degrees and a high of 40 in cooler months like January and February. In summer months the low is 63 with the high around 84. This weather is perfect for a heat pump! In the winter months, your pump will use the heat trapped in the ground from the summer and it will bring cooler air in during the warm summer months. With options like variable-speed and dual-speed motors, the blowers or fans you have installed will reduce the chance of cold drafts because the warm air is moving all the time, ultimately keeping a comfortable temperature.
A heat pump essentially moves heat from one place to another. It pulls heat from the air or the ground and transfers it to your home. When it is installed, it works like your furnace in that it warms the rooms in your home. A heat pump will also add value to your home, reduce your footprint, and lower your bills. They also offer even air distribution and with a quiet running system to keep you comfortable. There are three types of heat pumps:
In a cold climate, the heat pump is still able to bring the heat in from outside because deep under the ground the earth remains warm—and that warm air is pushed up into your home during the cooler months.
