Have a Holly, Jolly Heat Pump
The holidays are here, adding family gatherings, end-of-year parties and social get-togethers of all kinds to your schedule. But for much of the country, the festive holiday season is accompanied by winter’s chill. Pro tip: if you want your guests to enjoy themselves inside your home without needing to don their winter coats or bundle up in hats and scarves, you better plan ahead. A good home heating system can make or break the memorable times you hope to have this season.
So, what do we mean by “good?” First, let’s talk about what we don’t mean. Conventional gas-fueled furnaces and centralized heating and air-conditioning systems are commonplace across the country. However, these systems are inefficient, expensive and have significant environmental costs. Think of them as something Scrooge might use to heat his home.
By comparison, all-electric, all-climate heat pumps from Mitsubishi Electric are a holiday miracle! With Mitsubishi Electric heat pump systems, you enjoy superior comfort thanks to high-efficiency, variable-capacity operation. Their advanced features allow you to customize warmth in a single room or throughout your home while saving on your energy bills and contributing to a greener planet. Talk about joy to the world.
How Do Heat Pumps Work?
In heating mode, the heat pump system uses refrigerant to absorb heat outside the home and then provides warmth by transferring the heat via refrigerant from the outdoor unit to the indoor unit or units. This heat transfer method is powered by electricity, works in freezing weather and is much greener than fuel-burning heating systems.
We offer the most advanced heat pump technology available today, meaning maximum comfort and value whether you live on 34th Street or the North Pole.
Another benefit of heat pumps? They can provide both heating and cooling, serving as an energy-efficient air conditioner once the season changes. The operation in air-conditioning mode works in reverse, with the units pulling heat from your home’s interior and transferring the heat outdoors.
If you live in a region where subzero temperatures are common, you’ve probably used electric baseboard heaters, propane heaters and traditional, inefficient, fossil-fuel-burning systems to get through the winter in the past. Maybe you heard about heat pumps but were only familiar with older, conventional models and how they struggled at temperatures below 40° F.
Fast-forward to today: the most wonderful time in history for heat pump technology. Our heat pumps with Hyper-Heating INVERTER® (H2i®) technology can perform at 100 percent heating capacity in outdoor temperatures down to 5° F. From there, H2i systems deliver guaranteed operation all the way down to -13°F.
We recommend these systems for homes in especially cold climates to ensure comfort for your home year-round, but especially when the weather outside is frightful.
If you’re interested in giving the gift of a healthy climate to your kids and grandkids, a heat pump is the way to go. Burning fossil fuels to heat homes and commercial buildings accounts for 13 percent of total greenhouse gas emissions in the United States, according to the Environmental Protection Agency. Reducing or eliminating on-site combustion using a high-performance, variable-capacity heat pump helps bring emissions down. Ultimately, our all-electric heat pumps with gas-free heating are helping to ensure cleaner air for your family and community.
Reducing your energy use and preparing your home to run on electricity generated by renewable sources are among the most significant actions you and your family can take to help us achieve a prosperous and sustainable future. What a great way to get on Santa’s nice list!
There’s nothing like the warmth of family and friends over the holidays to bring you happiness. A close second, however, is the eco-friendly warmth you get from a Mitsubishi Electric heat pump. Visit mitsubishicomfort.com to learn more and have a wonderful, well-heated holiday season!
