How a Heat Pump Works
The heat pump works much like an air conditioner. Instead of heating the air by means of gas combustion or an electric heating element, it uses refrigerant to move thermal energy from one place to another. But unlike an air conditioner, which only has the capacity to move heat out of the home during the summer, the heat pump can also bring heat in during the winter.
Like a furnace, it uses ductwork installed throughout the home to ensure an even heating or cooling experience. And like a furnace, it can be controlled via a master thermostat, and even divided into zones by means of a zone control system.
Our Professional Heat Pump Installation
As with any centralized HVAC system, it’s absolutely critical that you deal with a trained professional. Only someone who’s experienced with such equipment, tools, and materials can make sure that your heat pump is installed correctly. But first things first: you’ll need a heat load calculation to determine the exact amount of heating and cooling that you and your family will require throughout the year.
We can also help you find a balance between energy efficiency and your budgetary requirements. The most efficient systems tend to be the most expensive, but that’s not true in all cases, and we work with homes (and family incomes) of all sizes. Once you’ve made your decision, you can count on our team to integrate it seamlessly into your home. We even design and build our own sheet metal ductwork.
