What is a Heat Pump?
A heat pump is a great way to increase your home’s energy savings. High-efficiency heat pump systems provide for your heating and cooling needs year-round. Heat pumps are devices that get installed (like an air conditioner) that draw heat from outside your home to provide the energy to cool your home in the summer and to heat your home in the winter. The electricity needed to create heating and cooling from heat pumps is less than a furnace or air conditioner.
Different Types of Heat Pumps
Air-source heat pumps collect heat from the air, water, or ground outside your home for use inside, transferring heat between your house and the outside air. Most air-source heat pumps are all electric and they are the most common type of heat pump. These units typically last about 15 years.
Hybrid heat pumps work like an all-electric heat pump but can use either gas or electricity. It automatically switches between fuel sources during the mild and moderate winter temperatures, creating heat from a more efficient energy source than a furnace.
Geothermal pumps are the most effective type of system available. These are the most expensive as they are installed underground. They can expect to last about 25 years! Hanna is proud to provide the installation of geothermal heat pump systems to our customers in Wichita and the surrounding communities.
