Article body

Heat pumps are very appropriate and replacement for furnaces and air conditioners because they are more energy-efficient. They also turn out to be more cost efficient because, since they do not generate heat, they provide an equivalent space conditioning at a quarter of cost compared to conventional heating and cooling appliances.

Efficiency and cost are the most important factors when buying a warm air heating system, but also safety should be a very important consideration.

Heat pumps use electricity to move heat from cool spaces to warm spaces. They move heat from cool outdoors into the warm house during cool seasons or winter. They move heat from a warm house to the outdoors during summer and hot season.  
As warm air heating installations, heat pumps are of three types: air-to-air, water source and geothermal depending on the source of heat. The most common is the air-to-air heat pump.

Is a heat pump appropriate for me?

There are a number of things to consider when buying a heat pump. These will help determine whether you should purchase a heat pump or not. 
1. Where do you put it? The warm air heating installation is done outside your home: it can be fitted either to a wall or placed on the ground. You need to afford an adequate space around it to make it access good flow of air.

2. Is the home insulated or not? Air source heat pumps are better than traditional boilers when producing heat at a lower temperature. Thus, pump heaters are appropriate when the home is insulated and draught-proofed.

3. What fuel will you be replacing? If you are using mains gas, then heat pumps are not suitable as warm air heating installations. 
4. Which type of heating system are you using? Heat pumps won't do well with radiator-based systems but they do well with under-the-floor heating systems because they require lower water temperatures.

5. Will it be serving a new or old development? The cost of warm air heating installation can go down when the installation is done when building the house.
