Heat pumps are fantastic in general, but it’s this time of year when you’re reaping the greatest benefits. They don’t generate heat (which takes a lot of energy) but simply transfer it from one place to another (which takes a lot less energy). So it’s during the heating season when you’ll see the greatest savings from your heat pump.
But that also means it’s extra frustrating if you’re having heat pump problems this time of year! You might end up heating with a backup system if your heat pump isn’t working, and that uses much more energy. If you’re dealing with tripped circuits or other heat pump malfunctions this winter, we’ve got some useful information for you.
