A new heat pump might be the most energy-efficient investment you make in your home. Unlike a traditional air conditioning system and furnace, it can provide both heating and cooling to your home thanks to its unique design.
When you decide to invest in a heat pump, we can handle the complete installation process. Our technicians service all major brands and will make sure your unit is installed according to each manufacturer’s guidelines.
We specialize in selling Carrier heat pumps made by one of the world’s leading manufacturers of heating and cooling systems.
There are several reasons why customers like to choose a heat pump instead of an HVAC system. Here are a few of the most popular.
A heat pump is generally less expensive to run than a combustion-based heating and cooling system. While some heat pumps can be a large investment, they can repay you over time through reduced energy bills and greater energy efficiency.
Heat pumps are easy to maintain, and they only need yearly service to stay in great shape. Their designs are more straightforward than an air conditioner or gas furnace, making them easier and faster to service as well.
Compared to a gas boiler, heat pumps produce 20% less emissions. This means fewer greenhouse gasses leading to climate change and a cleaner, healthier environment for everyone. In this day and age, it’s become more important to focus on your home’s impact on the climate. If you want to go green, then a heat pump could be a great choice.
Heat pumps can last between 15-20 years without issue as long as they’re serviced at least once a year. The lower energy costs and reliable performance year-round make them a worthy investment.
Yes! In fact, you can replace both your air conditioning unit and furnace with a do-it-all heat pump. Their two-in-one design means they can handle the entire job of a typical HVAC system with less equipment.
Switching from AC to a heat pump costs several thousand dollars, but it can be an effective way to streamline your home’s climate control and make it more energy efficient.
We can also connect your heat pump to your home’s existing ductwork for a seamless installation. The use will be exactly the same — just adjust your thermostat and let the heat pump switch from heating to cooling whenever you need it.
Electric heat pumps are easiest to install, and they’re more affordable than geothermal heat pumps that are installed underground. For maximum energy benefits, a geothermal model is the best, but it does have a higher upfront cost that runs between $12,000 to over $20,000.
Meanwhile, air-source heat pumps are the most popular, and they can reduce electricity usage for heating by up to 50%.
Carrier is one of the leading heat pump manufacturers in the world. During the winter, electric heat pumps can work in tandem with your gas or oil furnace as a hybrid heating solution. This can help save money while keeping your home warm and comfy.
There are several reasons why we particularly love Carrier heat pumps:
SEER, or Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio, reflects how efficiently a heat pump can cool your home. A SEER rating of 10-15 is good, and the US requires new models to have a minimum of 13. The Carrier heat pumps we offer have a minimum rating of 14 and go up to 17.5. This means more savings, greater performance, and improved comfort in your home.
The Heating Seasonal Performance Factor (HSPF) rating for heat pumps measures their heating efficiency. A good HSPF rating is 8, and the models we offer have HSPF ratings of 8.2 and 9.5.
We love how quiet Carrier heat pumps run; the models we carry run as low as 69 decibels, which is about as much as a washing machine or dishwasher.
With single- and two-stage scroll compressor options available, the Carrier models are great for heating and cooling your home.
Heat pumps look and function the same as air conditioners for cooling, but in cool months when heat is called for, they reverse operation to provide warmth for your home. If you live in a colder environment, electric heat pumps are great in combination with your oil or gas furnace as a Hybrid Heat solution, which can improve energy efficiency and result in significant savings on your overall heating costs.
