Your heating service company in St. Paul offers heat pumps for homeowners interested in alternative ways in which to heat their homes. Heat pumps are systems that pump heat from one location to another using a compressor and a circulation structure that essentially extracts heat from the outside and pumps it indoors. Heat pumps hold several benefits, which is one reason they have become more popular as of late. Here are a few of the benefits you will enjoy if you utilize a heat pump in your home.

The biggest benefit of a heat pump is in its ability to provide warmth with a simple touch of a button. You can even get heat pumps that come with a remote control so you can make adjustments from the comfort of your favorite chair.

Heat pumps come with a reverse cycle and can work just the opposite. That is, a heat pump can extract heat from the inside of your home and transfer it outside, thus keeping your home cool in the summer.

A heat pump enables you to increase or decrease the temperature of a room in an instant. Heat pumps can either heat up or cool down a specific room in just a matter of minutes. Once the desired temperature is reached, the heat pump will maintain that range. Heat pumps are safe since they don’t require flames or hot surfaces and can be left on while you sleep with no concern for safety.

Your gas heater needs oxygen in order to properly function. This can cause rooms in your home to become stuffy and create condensation on your windows. Heat pumps don’t need oxygen as they are just transferring heat from one location to another, not creating heat.

Unlike fireplaces, heat pumps don’t create smoke or add any fumes to the air you breathe. In addition, heat pumps circulate the air in your rooms and the filters do a great job removing unwanted odors, dust, spores and other particles from the air. This makes them an excellent choice for people who suffer from allergies or asthma.
