Choosing Between a Heater and a Heat Pump
Whether you need to install a new heating system for your Austin home or commercial property, you’ll need to choose between a traditional heater and a heat pump. What’s the difference?
A traditional heater, or furnace, is what you most likely already have installed in your Austin home or business. It generates heat, most likely by burning natural gas here in Austin, Texas, versus the oil-burning furnaces you’ll find in the North. Some furnaces are also powered by electricity alone.
Your traditional heater, regardless of the heating manufacturer, traditionally has an efficiency rate of 98%. This means a very, very small percentage – sometimes as low as 2% – of the fuel used to generate heat in your Austin home or commercial space escapes with combustion fumes that are vented outside to the exterior of either your home or business.
Heat pumps are a newer solution on the heating market, and they’re gaining traction fast in the Austin, Texas market. A heat pump moves heat from outside to inside with electricity only. Because of this, they can be up to 300% efficient!
Because of the possibility of freezing temps, heat pumps do come with a backup heat source, so when those record lows hit Austin, you’ll stay warm and toasty – whether you’re in your home or business.
Heat pumps are a great choice for Austin home and business owners who don’t have access to a natural gas line in their space, or who are looking to save on energy costs over time. While heat pumps come with a slightly higher up-front price, they do help home and business users save on utility costs during those cold fall and winter months.
