Benefits of heat pumps

Purchasing a Whirlpool heat pump has many benefits, including a heat pump is cheaper to operate than a traditional heater or air conditioner.

A heat pump produces up to three times more cooling or heating for the same cost of a furnace or boiler and an air conditioner.

Also, people like that the heat generated by a heat pump is less intense than the heat provided by a traditional heater. When you operate a heat pump air conditioner and heater in your home, it will extract moisture out of the air, even more than a standard air condensing unit, which allows you to better control the humidity levels in your home.

Finally, if you are concerned with your carbon footprint, you'll be happy to know heat pump footprints are small since the heating and AC are both in one unit. 

Drawbacks to heat pumps

While operating expenses for heat pumps are lower than traditional home cooling and heating units, it's usually more expensive to install a heat pump than it is to install a traditional unit.

Maintenance and repair costs can also be significantly higher than the costs to fix and maintain conventional systems.

One thing that turns people away from purchasing a heat pump is that it does not deliver as much hot or cool air when the demand is high. They're best for moderate, temperate climates.

Heat pumps are also often noisier than other types of systems.
