HOUSTON, TX AREA
A very common question that we get asked about in the Houston area is people wondering if they should buy a heat pump for an air conditioner. The best thing first that we should do is clarify what is the differences is between a heat pump and an air conditioner.
The first thing to know about that is that the heat pump and an air conditioner in the summer time is the exact same thing. Both will equally cool your home. One is not more powerful than the other one and, physically, if you’re looking at them, they are identical. The difference comes when the temperature drops outside and you’re turning your home into heating mode. The heat pump has the ability to extract heat out of the air and bring that heat into your house whereas your air conditioner just sits there off during the other half of the year.
A heat pump has to be used a lot get savings versus a traditional air conditioner / furnace setup. If you don't plan on using your heat pump a lot, don't bother. If you are able to get electricity cheaply, a heat pump may be an excellent option for you. The choice really depends on if you can justify the initial costs versus the potential savings.
