Heat Pump Services in West Chester, PA
A heat pump is a comfort system similar to an air conditioner. The difference is an air conditioner only moves heat out of a home to provide cooling. A heat pump can work in both directions, which means it is both a heating and cooling system. Heat pumps are great options for homeowners who are replacing both an AC and furnace at the same time, and they also help with energy savings during the winter.

Heat Pump Installation
Because heat pump systems provide both cooling and heating, the main benefit is clear. But there are other advantages that aren’t as clear. One of them is the high energy efficiency a heat pump has during winter. Compared to an electric furnace, a heat pump consumes far less electrical power in heating mode. The reason for this is that a heat pump uses electricity only to move heat, not to create it with electrical resistance. A heat pump is also a safer option for heating in homes than gas furnaces.
Dual Fuel System Heat Pumps
Heat pumps do have an obstacle when it comes to heating during extreme winters: because they must draw the heat they use for the home from thermal energy outdoors, they may suffer a drop in efficiency during freezing temperatures. Heat pump technology improves each year, and new models can handle colder temperatures. There is also the option for a dual fuel system—a heat pump with a backup furnace. Dual fuel systems also permit homes with natural gas to enjoy a "best of both worlds" situation with electric and natural gas heating.
