Heat Pump

How Do Heat Pumps Work?

Instead of using energy to generate heat, heat pumps work by moving the warmth around. During the winter, a heat pump draws warmth from the ground or the air outside into your building. In the summertime, the same pump expels the warm air from the interior areas. You can also install a heat pump to work in conjunction with an air conditioning system or a furnace. Using a heat pump will allow you to see an amazing decrease in your energy bills.

Why Are Heat Pumps so Energy-Efficient?

By redistributing warmth instead of making it, heat pumps require less energy than furnaces, air conditioners, and boilers. Even if you have a heat pump in addition to the traditional HVAC units, all of those units together means each individual unit won’t have to work as hard to keep your home comfortable year-round. In fact, the heat pump alone uses significantly less energy than a separate heating and cooling system. Less energy consumption leads to lower energy bills.

What to Expect When You’re Ready to Install Your Heat Pump

If you feel that heat pump installation is best for your residential or commercial building, give us a call and we will help you plan the following:

The type of heat pump to install: There are different heat pump units for different needs. Ground-source heat pumps, also known as geothermal pumps, run on a network of underground pipes to benefit from the warmth in the ground. Air-source heat pumps transfer the heat in the air between the inner and the outer areas of the building. Air-source pumps are ideal for more moderate climates, but for New Jersey residents, a geothermal pump is recommended.

The model and size of heat pump that is best for your space: When you install a new heat pump, you’ll want to ensure that it’s powerful enough to handle the job, but not too powerful that it uses more energy than you need. Our technicians will examine your building and recommend the right size heat pump to ensure the best results. Depending on whether your house or office has ductwork or not, you can also choose a ductless model or a standard pump.

The proper placement of your heat pump: Heat pumps can be noisy when they cycle on and off. Our technicians will install your heat pump in a location that is out of the way of household members or office staff, but that will still allow the pump to work effectively.

Once all the vital decisions have been made and your existing HVAC systems and ductwork have been examined, our technicians will begin the installation process. After your unit is in place and hooked up, we will also conduct a post-installation inspection to ensure that your heat pump is ready to get to work. Then, you’ll start reaping its benefits in the form of low energy bills and a more comfortable space.
