Heat pumps are the most energy-efficient form of electric heating if you get the right 1.
Homeowners are often worried about the effect of electric heat pumps on their energy costs, but they are surprisingly efficient. They only cost about 28c per hour to run, so running it for 4 hours a afternoon while every one of us were in the Winter time weeks is $1.12 a afternoon. To cool your house while every one of us were in the summer time weeks, it costs about 8c an hour, so running it continuously for 4 hours a afternoon is 34c per afternoon. That’s all it takes for your house to like a more comfortable environment while every one of us were in 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 component runs too fast without achieving the desired effects. While it may be too fast in cooling and heating, other functions of your Heating, Ventilation as well as A/C system, such as controlling humidity levels, will be ineffective, meaning it will have to run longer to achieve your desired temperature levels. An undersized component 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, temperature and room orientation, how often the heat pump is used, the size and number of windows, and whether your house is insulated.
