A heat pump can provide highly efficient heating and cooling in both warm and cool weather conditions. Heat pumps work like central air conditioners but can also provide warmth during cooler weather. During the summer, heat pumps will remove excess heat from your home and transfer it to the outside air. During cooler weather, heat pumps will remove heat from the outside air and circulate inside your home to add warmth. In very cold climates, a heat pump will be paired with a gas furnace. During cool outside temperatures, the heat pump will do the heating and use the furnace as a blower to circulate the warmer air throughout the home. When the temperatures get extremely cold, the heat pump will shut down and the furnace will kick on to provide all the heating and air circulation. This “duel fuel” system ensures that your home is kept comfortable using lower energy consumption than traditional heating and cooling systems.

Heat Pump Replacement & Installation
If your heat pump is more than 12 to 15 years old, you should consider replacing it with a newer, more efficient model. We will ensure that you get the best energy efficient unit to match your needs and budget. As heat pumps provide both heat and cooling throughout the year, one thing to note is that you should check both the HSPF and SEER ratings on all comparable heat pumps, or check for the ENERGY STAR label to ensure you are getting a high efficiency model. Since efficiency ratings are only for the equipment and do not take consider the overall efficiency of your home, it is important to ensure your home has adequate insulation to get the most savings from a new, energy-efficient heat pump.
