The Texas weather can be brutally hot but can also surprise you with cooler nights, so an efficient heating and cooling system is a must. One of the most energy-efficient ways of heating and cooling your home is an air source heat pump (ASHP), also simply called a heat pump.
Unlike heating and cooling systems that generate heat, a heat pump draws heat from the air and moves it from one place to another – into or outside your home. It uses electricity, liquid refrigerant, and copper to pull heat out of your home in the summer while returning cooled air back into your home. And on cooler days, when you need heat, it pulls heat into your home. Moving heat that already exists is more efficient than creating heat, as other types of systems do.
But can you really save money using a heat pump in Dallas, TX? Definitely. Heat pumps work best in a climate like ours, where the low temperatures rarely go as low as freezing.
