Heat Pump Installation
Heat pumps are a versatile and innovative HVAC system that’s perfect for residential homes. Despite the name, a heat pump does more than just heat your home – it can cool it, too. So instead of having a separate heater and air conditioner, why not upgrade to an air source heat pump for your home’s HVAC system?
Heat pumps are a lucrative investment that provides superior energy efficiency and performance for heating and cooling your home. While it’s possible to heat and cool your home exclusively with a heat pump, this option is best for our customers in milder climates. For regions with longer or harsher winters, we often recommend installing a furnace as a backup for those extra cold days.
How Does a Heat Pump Work?
A heat pump consists of two units: the condenser, which sits outside your home, similar to an air conditioning unit, and the indoor heat unit, which can go on the floor or wall. It gathers ambient heat from the air and then uses electricity and a heating coil to warm (or cool) the air.
Once the air is up to temperature, it travels through underground pipes and through your HVAC duct system, heating your home nicely. Even if the outside air is extremely cold, there’s still enough ambient heat for the pump to function and warm your house. In the summer, the process reverses, and the heat pump disperses cool air instead.
