Embracing Alternative Energy Options with Air-Source Heat Pumps

Air-Source Heat Pumps (ASHP), like other ​geothermal HVAC solutions​, are gaining in popularity among U.S. homeowners. But it’s the investment that sets the wide array of alternative arrangements apart. At Sensible Heating & Cooling, we believe you don’t have to spend big money to decrease your home energy-costs or even to adopt more eco-friendly practices; you just have to have a basic understanding of the solutions available.

The most cost-effective alternative HVAC solution we commonly discuss with our clients are ASHPs. A fairly straight-forward and extremely efficient temperature control source for homes of all sizes, this solution converts cool outside air into warm inside temperatures in winter, and works in reserve during warmer months. Under the right conditions, an ASHP can emerge as a cost-effective, carbon footprint-reducing HVAC solution, reducing expenses by an estimated 50 percent and delivering 3x more heat energy than the system consumes. Better still, retrofitting a home with an ASHP is far less disruptive than installing larger scale geothermal solutions.

Like many energy-efficient solutions, Xcel Energy and some Metro Area counties offer cash rebate programs and incentives for ASHP installs. More information is available via the U.S. Department of Energy’s website.

Sensible Heating & Cooling offers a wealth of experience and knowledge in traditional and geothermal residential HVAC systems. If you are interested in looking at options for your home that are more environmentally-friendly, and will save energy, give Sensible Heating & Cooling a call today. We always conduct complimentary consultations to determine if a geothermal or ASHP solution is right for your home.
