Although a furnace may be the most common type of heating system, heat pumps can be a great alternative that provides energy efficient comfort for every season. If you are looking for a dual-function HVAC system that provides year round heating and cooling, we can help you find the right heat pump for your home and budget!
How a heat pump works:
- During warm months a heat pump acts like an air conditioner removing excess heat from your home and dissipating in into the outside air.
- During colder months the process reverses. This time the heat pump extracts heat from the outside air and moves it into your home.
The different types of heat pumps:
- Air Heat Pumps: These use a heat exchanger type system to convert energy from the air into heat to heat your home. These systems can also be used to provide air conditioning when it is hot, giving you a complete, all in one HVAC system solution.
- Geothermal Heat Pumps: These take energy from the ground to create heat, making them one of the most environmentally sound heat solutions available today. They are highly efficient, and can also double as air conditioners, again providing an all in one HVAC system solution.
Choosing which type of heat pump is most suited to your situation may seem like a tough decision, but our experienced comfort specialists are always available to guide you through all the options and find the perfect heat pump for your home.
