Heat Pumps—an All-in-One Heating and Cooling Option for Winona Homeowners
All Minnesotans know how much the weather can vary from week to week—or from day to day. For a heating and cooling system that can keep up with the inconsistent weather, consider having River City Heating & Air Conditioning install a heat pump in your home.
What Is a Heat Pump?
A heat pump is an all-in-one system that provides both heating and cooling comfort. It’s the ultimate adapter—in the summertime, it takes heat energy from inside the home and transfers it outside, and in the colder months, the process reverses.
Consider Adding a Heat Pump to Your Existing Home Comfort System
More homeowners are switching to heat pumps for their energy-efficiency and versatility. When it’s hot out, a heat pump acts just like an air conditioner, and can even act as dehumidifiers, helping you balance moisture in your air.
It’s during the chilly fall and winter months when a heat pump’s energy efficiency really shines. When paired with an existing furnace, this hybrid heating system can work wonders. The two systems trade off operating—they only work when it’s most cost-effective for you. That means that when the temperature cools off, the heat pump will work its magic, but when it gets too cold out (around 37 degrees), the furnace will take care of the rest. It’s an effective strategy that produces double or triple the amount of heat than the energy it uses.
