When your home needs to be warmed in the winter months and cooled in the summer months, you need an energy-efficient solution to help save money. To both keep your home comfortable and save money, consider installing a heat pump. This unit takes heat from the ground water or air in the winter months to add warmth and pumps heat out of your home in the summer to keep it cool.

Benefits of Installing a Heat Pump
Installing a heat pump can have many advantages. One of the main perks is its energy efficiency, but there are other benefits as well, including:
- Lower utility bills as the unit is more energy efficient due to it using a renewable energy source.
- Ability to obtain a renewable heat incentive from the government or a tax rebate.
- Improved indoor air quality as this system doesn’t create smoke or add fumes to the air.
- Better safety than other heating systems.
- Maximum control over interior climate.
Energy-Efficient Features of Heat Pump
Heat pumps provide energy-efficient features that are good for the environment and help reduce your utility bills. These systems can cost as little as 25 percent of operating traditional cooling or heating units since they are more efficient at moving heat instead of generating it. They also use only a small amount of electricity to transfer hot and cold air, and allow you to increase or decrease the temperature of a room — or even switch from heating to cooling — quickly.

Common Issues with Heat Pumps
Like all heating and cooling systems, from time to time heat pumps might encounter issues that will require professional repairs. Some common problems you might encounter include:
- Heat pump cycles incorrectly: The unit can overheat if it’s turned on and off too frequently.
- Malfunctioning condenser: The system should be turned off and inspected by a professional if the condenser freezes.
- Blower breaks down: If the air inside the unit gets too hot, the system’s limit switch will shut down the unit. This can cause the blower to stop functioning.
- Improper installation: If you suspect your system was installed incorrectly you should have a professional inspect it and correct any errors.
