We Love Heat Pumps And We Think You Should Too!

Did you ever think that anyone could be as enthusiastic about heat pumps as we are? Well, we think that there are plenty of reasons why homeowners should consider installing a heat pump in their homes! C’mon! They’re efficient, effective, and can provide year-round comfort with just the flip of a switch! (But, more on that later.)

In any case, if you haven’t considered installing a heat pump in your home, now is the perfect time to do so. Below, we have listed all the reasons why we love these fancy little systems! All you’ve got to do is keep reading to find out more!

What Is a Heat Pump?

A heat pump works much like a standard split air conditioner, relying on the flow of refrigerant to transfer heat from one place to another. But what sets the heat pump apart from a standard AC is the reversing valve, which is used to reverse the direction the refrigerant flows through the system.


Well, by reversing the flow of refrigerant, the heat pump is able to provide home heating in addition to cooling! That’s right: with just one system you can both heat and cool your home! Pretty neat, huh?

So, What Are the Benefits?

There are plenty of benefits of having a heat pump installed in your home. Take for example:

  • Better Efficiency: Heat pumps are one of the most efficient home comfort systems on the market today. This is because they do not generate their own heat, but rather move it from one place to another. Additionally, they need little power to operate! When you make the switch to a heat pump, you can expect to save a whole bunch on your annual cooling and heating costs.
  • Versatility: Because heat pumps come fully equipped with a reversing valve, you can enjoy year-round comfort with just the flip of a switch! Plus, heat pumps come in both ducted and ductless models, so even if your home lacks the space for ductwork, we can find a heat pump for you!
  • Cost and Convenience: Why worry about the cost of having to maintain two different HVAC systems? A heat pump eliminates the need to own both a heater and an air conditioner, saving you money on costly repairs and untimely replacements.
