Top Reasons for Choosing an Energy Star Certified Heat Pump

When your Myrtle Beach area heating system needs to be replaced due to malfunction, poor performance, or low efficiency, you may be unsure of which new system to select. Your HVAC technician may suggest that you consider an Energy Star certified heat pump system. These heat pumps offers many advantages over systems that do not carry the Energy Star certification.

Reasons to consider an Energy Star certified heat pump or furnace systemLower Operating Costs

Energy Star certified heat pumps and furnace units have been tested and proven to be at least 30 percent more energy-efficient than their same-size counterparts. This means that if you install one in your home, you can save up to 30 percent on your natural gas or electricity bill, especially during the upcoming winter months. Most Energy Star certified heat pump systems pay for themselves after about 5 years of typical use. These systems also tend to experience fewer mechanical or electrical problems.


Energy Star heat pumps and furnaces that carry the actual Energy Star rating are considered to be environmentally friendly. Their high energy efficiency means that less natural resources are needed to produce and power them. The heat pumps, for instance, use R-410a, an eco-friendly refrigerant that is known to have no bad effect on the ozone layer.

Lowers Carbon Footprint

An Energy Star certified heat pump or furnace has a smaller carbon footprint than other systems. If you want to sell your home, the fact that your house has efficient and earth-friendly mechanical systems may be an advantage compared to homes that do not. You can also feel good about making an environmentally friendly choice when it comes to keeping your home comfortable.
