Summer is in the air, and if you’re feeling the heat, it may be because that clunky, old air conditioner just isn’t cutting it anymore. It’s time for an upgrade, but choosing the right replacement is crucial. Opting for the wrong system can result in hundreds or even thousands of dollars in wasted expenses each year, and choosing the right one can cut your cooling costs in half. Worried you’ll get it wrong? No sweat! Elephant Energy is here to support you, and we highly recommend considering heat pumps.
Here at Elephant, we love heat pumps! And can you blame us? They help the planet, save money, and heat and cool your home WAY more efficiently than anything else on the market. All heat pumps are great, but different types of heat pumps bring different things to the table. Mini Split heat pumps are a particularly handy solution for certain homes – especially those without ducts. Wondering if mini splits are right for your home? That’s why we’re sharing our Ultimate Guide to Mini Split Heat Pumps.
