Heat Pumps

Are Heat Pumps An Affordable Heating System?

Saving money is important when you live in a growing city like Toronto and the GTA. With the mayor projecting an approximate 70,000 new people each year moving in, it’s no secret that prices aren’t dropping anytime soon when it comes to housing. Luckily, you can put a little more money in your pocket by choosing the right affordable heating system for your home. Heat pumps are great for that.

Affordable Heating Systems Are Great For Saving

Not everyone is a trained HVAC technician, so let’s take a moment to review the different ways of heating a home below, including:

  • furnace
  • boiler/combi-boiler
  • fireplace (gas/electric)
  • wood-burning stove
  • heat pump

Now that the basics are out of the way, we can all recall experiencing one or more of these in our lifetime. However, heat pumps have been growing in popularity due to their multiple benefits. A heat pump is designed for spot heating the immediate area where it is located. Think of this as being a very powerful space heater that can be set to any temperature your heart desires. It is a sleek and subtle unit that is mounted high on a wall and connected to a compressor outside. Cold air is pulled into the unit, heated, and then distributed to the room inside your home. What makes it an affordable heating system though is that it requires less energy to operate.

Think about a furnace for example. A furnace needs to generate enough hot air to reach every room in a home. A heat pump only needs to keep the immediate area warm. This leads to less energy being used and smaller bills for you each month. It’s also easier to install. Unlike a boiler, furnace or wood-burning stove, heat pumps are an affordable heating system because they don’t rely on ductwork or pipes that carry heat to all areas of a home. This simplified solution saves you from installing vents or ductwork and keeps overall costs lower – just be sure to hire a professional to handle the installation.
