Are electric heat pumps expensive to run

Heat pumps are the most energy-efficient form of electric heating if you get the right one. Homeowners are often concerned about the effect of electric heat pumps on their energy bills, but they are surprisingly efficient. They only cost about 28c per hour to run, so running it for 4 hours a day during the winter months is $1.12 a day. To cool your home during the summer months, it costs about 8c an hour, so running it continuously for 4 hours a day is 34c per day. That’s all it takes for your home to enjoy a more comfortable environment during summer. Some factors affect the running costs of your electric heat pump. For instance, when choosing the ideal heat pump for your home, ensure it is the right size. The size of your heat pump should match your home’s cooling or heating needs. An oversized unit runs too fast without achieving the desired effects. While it may be too fast in cooling and heating, other functions of your HVAC system, such as controlling humidity levels, will be ineffective, meaning it will have to run longer to achieve your desired temperature levels. An undersized unit will struggle to keep up with the requirements of your home, causing your system to run longer, which in turn increases energy consumption. Operation costs also vary depending on the size and layout of your home, climate and room orientation, how often the heat pump is used, the size and number of windows, and whether your home is insulated.
