Residential Heating & Cooling with Heat Pumps
Having heat pumps in your home can prevent blackouts, power surges and protect against dangerous electrical waste. Heat pumps are mostly used in the winter for heating and are very energy efficient and cost-effective. Did you know that heat pumps can also cool down your home in the summer months? They don’t deplete the ozone and have limited harmful emissions as well.
Heat Pumps Explained
Used for optimizing heating and cooling processes and increasing efficiency, a heat pump is an outdoor device that moves heat in and out of your house. There are many types but the most common are air-source heat pumps and ground-source heat pumps or geothermal heat pumps. A heat pump works to create a comfortable environment with organic air flow in your natural surroundings.
Types of Heat Pumps
There are three primary types of heat pumps we work with, including:
- Water source
Our technicians can install, repair, and maintain any type of heat pump.
Air-Source heat pumps use outside air which contains heat even in cold temperatures. As a result, heat pumps offer low cost heating and cooling, and almost four times as much heat as electric heaters (though they use the same amount of energy). Other benefits of air-source heat pumps:
- They can last 20+ years
- Easy to maintain
- A heat pump produces 3 units of hear for every unit of electricity
- Energy-Efficiency Tax Credit
Ductless or Mini Split Heat Pump
A ductless mini split heat pump is perfect for home add-ons or renovations without existing ductwork. The lack of air ducts ensures your new heat pump system is more cost effective and easy to install.
Solar Heat Pump
Today’s top solar heat pump systems utilize an efficient solar thermal panel to extract heat from the outdoors and keep your home warm during the winter. Essentially, the heat moves instead of being artificially created, which makes the system up to three times more efficient.
Ground-Source or Geothermal Heat Pumps
A ground-source heat pump or geothermal heat pump uses underground earth temperatures to heat or cool. This geothermal heat pump is very energy efficient since it exchanges heat with the ground and underground temperatures are fairly stable over time. Underground temperatures are cool during the summer and warm during the winter so geothermal heat pumps provide the ideal heat and air throughout the year.
Using a geothermal heat pump can offer you many benefits, such as:
- Long lasting (15+ years)
- Lowering energy bills up to 70% (lower production costs, 400% efficiency rating)
- Geothermal Tax Credit of 30%
- Carbon footprint reduction (up to 50%)
- Does not emit carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide or other greenhouse gases
- Can also heat your home’s water
