Massachusetts is a diverse place. From the eastern side of the state with Middlesex County and Boston, to the western side with Springfield, or the central area in Amherst, there are a lot of different people who live in different ways. We can’t simply tell you which heating or cooling system is going to be best for everyone in Massachusetts, because everyone here is different!
But, what we can tell you, is that the climate is pretty similar all throughout the state. We’re not like Florida where one part of the panhandle might be a good 20 degrees colder than the tip of Miami. With consistent temperatures, we have better ideas of what to expect throughout our seasons.
With this in mind, we’d recommend a heat pump system for nearly anyone who is looking for this kind of air conditioning and heating unit. For heating installations in Southborough, MA and beyond, this blog post will hopefully explain this additional alternative heating system.
Heat Pumps: An Eco-Friendly Heater
For anyone unfamiliar with a heat pump, these systems heat your home with the use of a powerful refrigerant that can easily be evaporated and condensed through the system.
This is an important point because evaporation and condensation are what make a material lose or gain heat from the atmosphere surrounding it. So, as the refrigerant evaporates inside of the system, the heat from the air is absorbed by the refrigerant for it to be let go when it condenses. This is essentially how a heat pump moves heat from one place to another.
Heat pumps don’t rely on gas or oil. They use electricity, which means the solar panels you hope to build in the future, or the eco-friendly power grid your municipality is investing in will soon be able to power the heating and cooling of your home.
High Efficiency for Tightly Sealed Homes
Heat pumps can be hard in the winter for homes that are old, drafty, and not set up to be efficient. This is why they’re great for newer homes, or homes that have 21st-century upgrades, so you can capitalize on the energy efficiency benefits that you get from all of these systems working together.
For instance, you’re bound to get more out of a heat pump when it’s working with a smart thermostat, double-paned windows, and doors that are tightly sealed during the winter or summer.
Versatility and Ductless Solutions
Did we mention that a heat pump is also an air conditioning system? It can cool or heat your home depending on the setting you choose. This is great because it means you can kill two birds with one stone by investing in both a heating and cooling system at the same time.
Also, they come in ductless forms so you don’t have to worry about investing in your home’s ductwork. Purchase a ductless heat pump installation to get high-quality comfort in your home with the use of wall-mounted air handlers instead of vents.
