Heat Pump Technology Saves You Money
With heat pump technology, heat is moved from one source to another. The Heat Pump system electrically drives fans and motors, but the heat is harvested from outdoor air and drawn indoors. A heat pump transports warm air from one place to another, to either heat or cool a space. Heat energy is present even in air that seems cold. When it's cold outside a heat pump extracts this outside heat and transfers it inside. When it’s warm outside, it reverses directions and acts like an air conditioner, removing heat from your home. Heat pumps are best suited for moderate climates like we enjoy in New York. It is not a bad idea to have a supplemental heating system on board when the outside temperatures really plummet. One advantage of a heat pump is that it moves heat instead of generating heat, giving you more energy efficiency. A heat pump system is powered electrically, so you can enjoy substantial savings on fuel consumption.
Electric Resistive Heating
In a word, an Electric Resistive Heating System may be compared to your toaster: a heating element becomes hot and radiant heat is produced. It is an expensive method of heating. According to the DOE, electric resistance heating is 100% energy efficient in the sense that all the incoming electric energy is converted to heat. However, electricity is produced from coal, gas, or oil generators that convert only about 30% of the fuel's energy into electricity. Electric resistance heat can be supplied by centralized forced-air electric furnaces or by heaters in each room. Room heaters can consist of electric baseboard heaters, electric wall heaters, electric radiant heat, or electric space heaters.
