Should You Choose a Heat Pump for Your AC Installation?


After our surprise frigid spell this past winter, are you considering buying a new heater for next year? Whether you’re thinking about buying just a heater or if you were already also considering a new air conditioner as well, you’d do well to consider a heat pump system!

“Wait,” you might be wondering, “Are we talking about heaters or air conditioners?”

Well, both! You see, the thing is a heat pump is a year-round, 2-in-1 system that both heats and cools, and it does so very efficiently. They’re truly great systems that can keep your indoor climate at an ideal temperature all year round. Interested in learning more? Read on!

Heat Pumps Are Energy Efficient

Heat pumps are among the most energy-efficient home comfort systems on the market today. Utilizing electricity, they cycle refrigerant much like a central air conditioner does. In the summertime, this means they pull heat out of the air inside your home and, in the wintertime, they pull heat from outside and bring it in.

This makes them very efficient heaters because instead of generating heat, they transfer heat. This also makes them highly efficient air conditioners as well due to their setup. You’ll want to pay attention to SEER ratings as well (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) which our team can and will help you with.

You Don’t Have to Have Ductwork

Have you ever heard of a ductless system? Even if you haven’t, it’s likely that you’ve seen one. It’s comprised of a small outdoor unit that’s connected to up to 4 indoor air handlers. Each of these air handlers is usually mounted high up on a wall, and each can be controlled independently of one another.

They save space, energy, and money due to their setup. You can’t say the same for a system that relies on ductwork!

Your Comfort Is Year-Round

Heat pumps are fantastic for providing heat. But as we’ve said above, they provide cool air too. This is thanks to a component that’s built-in, called the reversing valve. Due to this component, your heat pump has the ability to reverse the flow of refrigerant within its system. This means when you need cool air, the heat pump can absorb heat, and when you need warm air the heat pump can exude it.

Only Trust the Pros for Heat Pump Services

Heat pumps are very compact and efficient home comfort systems that will keep your home a haven from outdoor temperatures all year long. Of course, just like any other heating and cooling system, a heat pump does need maintenance, and eventually it will need repairs too. Thankfully, you don’t have to worry about that when you work with our team.

We provide exceptional heat pump services, from installation or replacement, to repairs and maintenance. Speaking of maintenance, it’s important to remember that since a heat pump is a year-round system, this service should be scheduled twice a year rather than just once. We look forward to serving you!
