For much of the year, scorching temperatures are the norm in Las Vegas—and cooling bills stretch business and household budgets to the max. Then, from November to March, an unexpected cool spell can blast the city, and you need a low-cost but reliable heating system. The Century’s Comfort Champions have the perfect solution: energy-efficient heat pumps.
Heat Pumps Save Money With Green Technology
Unlike gas-fired furnaces and electric or propane heaters, heat pumps do not consume fuel to produce heat. Instead, they harvest heat from surrounding air, water or land. This type of technology makes good sense in the Nevada desert, where winter temperature changes can be sudden but short-lived. Here’s how a heat pump works to heat homes and commercial buildings:
- Circulating refrigerant collects heat from outside air, ground or water.
- A fan blows air over the refrigerant coil, releasing collected heat and blowing it into the venting system.
- To handle temperatures below 25 to 30℉, an air handler can be added to supplement the heat pump system.
Since sub-freezing temperatures are rare in Las Vegas, heat pumps are a great way to reduce heating costs and keep utility bills in check. Initial costs are reasonable, too, as is yearly maintenance.
Advantages of Heat Pumps for the Vegas Climate
Where temperatures are moderate year-round, the heat pump process is reversed and these energy-efficient systems cool as well as heat. The technology doesn’t deliver enough cooling capacity to handle the 100°+ temperatures of a Vegas summer, but this versatile cooling method can cut energy costs during spring and fall. Century Comfort Champions design climate control systems that combine heat pumps with air conditioners. Working together, these two systems deliver high-caliber, cost-effective comfort.
Benefits of choosing a heat pump for your Las Vegas cooling and heating system include:
- Savings on energy usage
- Lower utility bills
- Non-polluting technology
- Heating & supplemental cooling from one system
- Better humidity regulation
