If you’re a homeowner keen on home energy savings, you probably know about the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022. If you haven’t, here’s a quick summary: It helps homeowners reduce energy costs and make home improvements more affordable. You can read more about how the IRA works here.
While the bill provides many great benefits, arguably its best features are the rebates the government awards to homeowners who install new heat pump systems in their homes. But, what is a heat pump, and is it suitable for your family? You probably have questions if you’re unfamiliar with these efficient dual comfort systems. No problem – we have the answers you seek!
Heat pump basics
Let’s start simple – while it’s called a heat pump, this convenient home comfort system does more than heat your home. The heat pump has its name because its primary function is to transfer heat in and out of your home, rather than produce it.
For example, on hot summer days, it’ll move the warm, stuffy air from the inside of your home to the outside, so you stay nice and cool. Then, in the winter, it pulls heat from the outdoors, warms it, and distributes it throughout your home to keep you warm and cozy. Pretty neat, huh? Not only that, but it’s also very efficient and uses about half as much energy as other electric heating sources.
Why a heat pump is an excellent choice
In addition to receiving a significant rebate – thank you, Inflation Reduction Act! – here are the many benefits you’ll enjoy by installing a heat pump in your home:
• Low-noise operation
• Improved indoor air quality and air circulation
• Reduced energy bills
• Enhanced energy efficiency
• A single system to heat and cool your home
• More consistent temperature throughout your living space
• Increased resale value for your home
• Peace of mind that you’re helping the environment
