Many homeowners think of their HVAC systems as being made up of an air conditioner and a furnace. While it’s true that options outside of this traditional central heating and cooling format are limited, the perfect solution may be easier to find than you think. A heat pump system is a highly efficient alternative to a furnace and air conditioner. With the ability to heat and cool your home, heat pumps are a popular choice for Dallas homeowners.

How Do Heat Pumps Work?
Heat pumps can heat and cool? This is a surprise to many homeowners, but the technology is actually quite simple. Similar to a refrigerator or air conditioner, heat pumps use refrigerant coils to remove heat from inside the house and essentially dump it outside, lowering the temperature of the air inside. When it comes to heating your home, however, heat pumps don’t produce heat like a furnace does. Instead, the cooling process is simply reversed to bring heat from outside and disperse it inside your home.
Heat Pump Use in Texas
Dallas — and most of Texas — is the perfect climate for heat pump installation. This is because heat pumps rely on there being enough heat in the outside air during the winter in order to keep your home warm. In areas that rarely reach temperatures below freezing, heat pumps are more efficient than furnaces.
Heat Pumps vs. Furnaces
While creating heat and moving heat sound pretty much the same, there’s actually a big difference between using a heat pump system and a furnace. When it comes to utility costs, heat pumps are much less expensive to run during the winter than furnaces because they move warm air around rather than produce it. If you’ve ever wondered why your utility bills go up so much in the winter, it’s because producing heat takes a lot of energy! Their high energy efficiency makes heat pumps the ideal choice for many homeowners, especially because they can be used in conjunction with a furnace in colder climates.
