Upgrading your HVAC system is an important decision, especially considering that more than half of the energy use in a home is attributed to heating and cooling. If you’re looking for a versatile, energy efficient, and healthier HVAC option for your home—look no further than a heat pump.
Heat pumps are one of the most efficient HVAC systems available today and can help you lower your utility bills while providing year-round comfort. Baylies installs both ductless mini split and ducted heat pumps in Worcester and Rhode Island homes. Our team can even help you save on heat pump installation with Mass Save® rebates!
Why Choose a Heat Pump?
A heat pump is an all-electric heating and cooling system that can replace both furnaces and air conditioners in any climate. The name “heat pump” comes from its ability to redistribute heat that is already in the air. Unfortunately, their name can lead to some confusion. It is a common misconception that heat pumps only have the ability to provide heat—they can effectively keep you warm all winter and cool throughout the summer. There are many reasons to consider a heat pump system for your Worcester home, including:
Heating & Cooling Capabilities
Only having one system to keep your home comfortable all year round means you also only have one system to maintain. To maximize the performance of your heat pump—or any HVAC system—Baylies recommends making sure your home is properly insulated to keep it from over working.
If you’re also wondering about the effectiveness of a heat pump vs. furnace in the bitter New England winters—you can rest assured knowing that heat pumps work to extract heat from the air even in below freezing temperatures!
Lower Energy Bills
Modern heat pumps can reduce your heating bills by up to 50% compared to traditional furnaces. With proper maintenance a heat pump can last up to 15 years, bringing you benefits for years to come.
Heat pumps don’t create heat, they move it either in or out of your home depending on where it’s needed, making them more energy efficient and cleaner to use. Since electric heat pumps aren’t powered by combustion, you don’t run the risk of carbon monoxide leaks in your home as you would with a gas, oil, or propane furnace.
Improved Indoor Air Quality
Installing a heat pump will also add filtration and humidity controls to your whole home system. A heat pump will reduce the amount of pollutants in the air you breathe, decreasing allergy symptoms and boosting your indoor air quality.
Start With a No-Cost Home Energy Assessment
If you want to upgrade your home’s HVAC with a heat pump, the best place to start is with a no-cost home energy assessment from the Mass Save® Program. Evaluating your home’s performance and inefficiencies should always be the first step in making any energy efficiency upgrades. In fact, a no-cost home energy assessment is the first step in qualifying for the Mass Save® Heat Pump Rebate for up to $10,000 (or up to $16,000 for income-eligible households).
After your assessment, our team can determine your eligibility and help you choose the best energy-saving upgrades for your home. Baylies helps families throughout the Plymouth and Rhode Island areas make their home more comfortable and energy efficient.
