Choosing Between a Heat Pump or Furnace
When it comes to heating your home, there are two forms of central home heating- furnaces and heat pumps. Although it can be difficult to know which one is right for your home, it all depends on what you are looking for. Learning about what each one does and the benefits of each can help you decide which system is best for your home.
What is a Heat Pump?
Heat pumps are devices that can be used as air conditioners as well as to heat your home. They work by moving heat from one point to another. During the heating season, heat pumps pump heat from the outside air into the house, and during the cooling season, heat pumps move heat from the inside of the home into the warm outdoors.
Benefits of a heat pump:
- Convenience; no need to install separate systems to heat & cool your home
- Efficient electric heating
- No gas required
- Does not burn oxygen
- Ability to maintain air quality since it does not create smoke or add fumes to the air
What is a Furnace?
A gas furnace creates heat by burning natural gas. It is controlled by a thermostat, which alerts the furnace when the temperature inside a home drops below a certain point. Furnaces use a flame to heat air and then that heated air is pushed out by a fan through ducts and out of the floor vents in your home.
Benefits of a furnace:
- Less expensive than a heat pump
- Durable and long-lasting
- Provides quick heat
- Heat spreads evenly throughout the house
The choice between a heat pump and a furnace comes down to which type of heating you prefer and how you prefer to cool down your home. If you prefer the convenience of having one system that heats and cools your home, then a heat pump would be a good option. But if summer heat is not a big concern or you prefer other methods to cool down your home, then a furnace would be a great choice.
