Heat pumps are the most eco-friendly and energy-efficient way to heat your home. For most climates, it’s lighter on your energy bill to heat with a pump as opposed to a furnace or boiler. But in extreme cold, a heat pump may struggle to keep up.
Many heat pumps are rated to a minimum temperature of 18 degrees. Luckily, the winters in the Central Valley are mild enough that a heat pump can operate effectively. So most residents in California can be assured that a heat pump will keep them warm and cozy all winter long!
