Heat pumps were once considered inefficient and undesirable, but times have changed. Thanks in large part to new efficiency standards put on heat pumps by the government; they have become significantly more desirable. They are more energy-efficient than central heating and air conditioning systems. In fact, by some estimates, the best heat pumps are as much as 100% more efficient than central heating and cooling systems.
More and more people are turning to them to save money on their power and gas bills and even more, people are embracing heat pumps out of concern for the environment. If you have decided to make the leap, there are things you should know before selecting your heat pump system.
