When it’s time to replace the heating system in your Titusville, FL, home, a heat pump is a cost-effective solution. The area’s moderate climate means that a heat pump will deliver efficient heating and cooling when you need it. There are many affordable heat pump options, and a variable-speed heat pump is a wise choice for these three reasons.
Lower Electricity Use
One of the biggest perks of a variable-speed heat pump is its low electricity consumption. Almost all of the time, the motor will operate at 50% capacity or lower. This reduces energy use without sacrificing your comfort. Your electricity bills will be lower year-round. A typical home’s energy use will be cut by 17% to 38% in the winter and 34% to 38% in the summer months of the year, explains the Electric Power Research Institute. You could save hundreds of dollars every year on home heating and cooling costs.
According to the Department of Energy, variable-speed heat pumps maintain an ideal airflow rate. This minimizes drafts and cold spots in your home. The improved airflow also means that your home’s air is filtered more frequently. Removing more dust and other particles will help you breathe easier. The variable-speed fans operate quietly, so you’ll be able to relax and sleep better with less noise.
Reduce Wear and Tear
Variable-speed compressors and fans operate at the lowest possible speed to reach the desired temperature in your home. By not operating at 100% capacity, their parts experience less wear and tear. The reduction of wear and tear means that a variable-speed heat pump’s moving parts last longer. You won’t have to deal with as many repairs or unexpected breakdowns that disrupt your comfort. These heat pumps typically have a longer lifespan than a single-speed system.
