Traditionally, homes have been equipped with a heating furnace and a separate air conditioning service unit. These systems where bulky and really inefficient since the homeowner would have to manually switch over the system for the change in seasons. Nowadays, homes are being installed with heat pump systems. More common in office buildings, these HVAC systems need less service and repair, they run more efficiently, and they heat and cool from the same system.
Here are some more reasons why Carrier heat pump systems are more beneficial than the traditional furnace units.
1. They Save Money
Heat pumps are considered one of the most efficient heating systems currently available. The system uses outside air to help heat and cool the home or office, which uses less electricity or gas than traditional furnaces and air conditioning service units.
2. They Make Less Noise
The air compressor is located on the outside of the HVAC unit, allowing Carrier heat pumps to be much less noisy than a furnace. Noise is a common complaint of homeowners who have a furnace, and therefore, many homeowners are switching to a heat pump heating and air conditioning service unit.
3. They Have A Built-In Humidifier
A furnace can dry out the air in your home. Many furnace owners are forced to buy expensive humidifier units to help reduce the dry air in their homes. Alternatively, Carrier heat pumps circulate air in from the outside, which helps to circulate, purify, and humidify the air all at once.
