The Heat Pump Myths Your Should Ignore

When it comes to heat pumps, there are a ton of wrong information or myths that often go along with them. When opting to install a heat pump, you are choosing an energy efficient way to heat your home evenly. So if you are unaware of the value a heat pump can have to your heating and cooling system, here are just a few of the myths that you should ignore.

Energy Efficient Heating Options

Too Pricey

When investing in a heat pump, you might see a higher initial payment and installation fee, but the overall savings will make up for it in the end. When installed correctly, a heat pump will help you heat your home more efficiently, saving you money down the road. So if you’re looking for a warmer home with a lower energy bill, a heat pump can help. 

They Make Too Much Noise

In the past, this might have been a true statement, but now with modern technology, it’s a myth. The noise that a heat pump produces comes from air being pulled through the fan. If your heat pump were installed correctly, it would not disturb your home’s noise level in any way. So though it might produce some noise, it won’t be any more than the sounds your refrigerator makes. 

Only Good With New Construction

This common myth has to do with the heat pumps efficiency. If you’re looking to get the best performance and energy usage from a heat pump, a newly constructed home with new insulation would be your best bet. That is not to say that you can not add one to an existing home, if you are looking to upgrade your heating or AC system, a heat pump can be added along with it.
