If this is your first winter with a heat pump, you may be surprised – or maybe a little concerned – to see that it runs almost constantly.
Don’t worry – it’s supposed to work that way!
Your heat pump is designed to run most of the time during the winter as it works to maintain constant airflow and a consistent temperature in your home. Unlike a furnace or boiler, which works for short, intensive bursts, a heat pump is constantly drawing heat from outdoor air into your home to keep your space warm. Rather than blasting your space with heat, a heat pump continuously makes small adjustments to keep your air at the target thermostat temperature in the most efficient way possible.
When you have a heat pump professionally installed by heating experts, your technician will help you choose a system that is matched to the size and layout of your home – that way your equipment is able to handle dropping temperatures in Middlesex and Norfolk counties.
