What Is a Heat Pump?
A heat pump is a system which not only produces heat, but also efficiently and effectively distributes it across a network of ducts. Heat pumps are typically available in one of two types: Air-source heat pumps and ground-source heat pumps.
Air-Source Heat Pumps
An air-source heat pump essentially draws in hot air from the outside, and then this hot air can be used to heat your home or business. Often, this technology can save hundreds of dollars per-year over other heating systems. Air-source heat pumps maintain their efficiency because they don't have to primarily generate heat, but rather, they pass heat along. This means that these systems have less energy to waste and more to supply.
Ground-Source Heat Pumps
Ground-source heat pumps work by generating partial heat from the ground to efficiently heat your home or business. These systems take advantage of the average temperatures that exist within the ground, meaning they can offer a sustainable source of fuel, regardless of temperature.
Geothermal Heat Pumps
A geothermal heat pump, also known as a ground source heat pump, is an efficient method to heat your entire home or business. Typically, such a system is designed for space heating and cooling and sometimes water heating. It’s a more energy-efficient way to heat an entire space without burning fossil fuels.
Heat Pumps Maintenance
To properly maintain a heat pump and keep warm air circulating throughout your home, you want a trusted professional to perform the job at least once per year. A thorough maintenance appointment for a heat pump includes:
- Checking the air filters once per month and cleaning or replacing them as needed.
- Keeping the outdoor unit clean and free of snow, ice or debris.
- Keeping the outdoor coils clean and free of dirt or grease.
- Pruning back shrubs and grass at least 18 inches from the outdoor unit for proper airflow.
