Cleveland HVAC Services: Heat Pumps for Homes in Moderate Climate
Home heating takes up around 45% of residential energy bills in the United States. From furnaces to heat pumps, heating systems have different characteristics and efficiency levels that homeowners may choose from to suit their needs. For states with moderate temperatures, heat pumps are the most effective alternative to air-conditioners. Instead of producing heat, heat pumps transfer heat from warmer outdoor spaces into your home for balanced distribution indoors, fueled by either electricity or geothermal energy. In warm weather, the indoor heat is moved outside to provide cooler indoor air for Cleveland homes. Given such methods of heating and cooling, heat pumps have gained a reputation for efficiency and low maintenance compared to other common HVAC systems.
