One of the pivotal aspects of an all electric home is the heating and cooling equipment you depend on to keep your home comfy during the foggy Bay Area winters, and blazing dry summers.
When it comes to efficient, all electric home comfort technology, heat pumps and ductless mini splits are the go to solution for versatile heating and cooling. Electrify My Home has over 35 years of experience in the HVAC industry, and we specialize in pairing our customers with the perfectly sized heat pump or mini split, and combining heat pumps with other all-electric measures like heat pump water heaters, smart thermostats, and induction stoves.
How Heat Pump Technology Works
There are two aspects of heat pumps and mini splits that make them particularly suited for the all-electric home:
The ability to provide both hot and cold air
Ultra-efficient operation without the use of fossil fuels
How can a heat pump do this? By transferring heat instead of creating it. In the summertime, heat begins to build up inside of your home through the warm air outside, and the sun beating down on your roof. Heat pumps take that heat, and send it back outside via a refrigerant line, leaving only the cool air inside your home.
During the colder months, this process is reversed. Even in sub-freezing temperatures, a heat pump can isolate and extract heat from the outside air, and send it into your living space. This is done with no loss in energy, since refrigerant lines are far less prone to leakage compared to traditional ductwork.
Finding the Right Heat Pump or Mini Split
One of the keys to lasting success when it comes to replacing outdated heating and cooling equipment with all electric technology is proper sizing. Using the tried and true methods of calculating your home’s heating and cooling load, we can find the right mini split or heat pump to fit your home’s year round comfort needs.
