In recent years, there has been a tremendous increase in the usage of heat pumps, as it is regarded as an efficient source to heat and cool buildings from a single source. Even though the functioning of a heat pump is much like a refrigerator and air conditioner that transfer heat from one location and dump it to another, a prime specialty of a heat pump is that it can transfer heat in both ways ie. it can remove heat from inside the building and move it outside during summer and vice versa in winter. Further, in contrast to other heating systems such as conventional furnaces, it does not involve the generation of heat and hence is more efficient.

The efficiency of a heat pump depends upon its SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) and HSPF (Heating Seasonal Performance Factor) ratings. The higher the SEER and HSPF ratings, the more efficient will be its functioning. A highly efficient heat pump provides up to a SEER of 18 and HSPF up to 10.0. Apart from these, most of the heat pumps now available come with astounding features that promote for its quieter, efficient and reliable performance. In fact, a heat pump, especially geothermal or ground source heat pump, serves as a cost effective alternative to replace your existing heating system, thereby enabling you to save thousands of dollars per year.

The price as well as installation cost of a heat pump is relatively high, but the good news is that most of the heat pump distributors provide some sort of discount upon ordering the unit.. Since heat pump systems serve as a great alternative for the conservation of energy, the government also provides grants and rebates in the form of tax credits for its purchase.
