What Makes a Heat Pump the Best Choice for Home Comfort?

Monday, October 16th, 2017

dog-home-comfortEvery home has unique heating and cooling needs, requiring a different system for homes of different shapes and sizes. The biggest heating system or cooling system is not necessarily the best. In fact, choosing an air conditioner or heater that is too large for your home can result in short cycling—the system running too often and wearing down its parts. And of course, a system that is too small will not do a sufficient job of heating or cooling your home.

While homeowners will choose different efficiency ratings for their comfort systems based on what they can afford, and while sizing changes based on the size of the home, there is still one type of system we recommend time and time again. In our area, the heat pump is the way to go.

Why Does the Outside Unit of the Heat Pump Run in the Winter?

Monday, January 23rd, 2017

This is a question that puzzles many homeowners. If you’ve ever found it odd that the outside unit of your comfort system runs when you turn on the heat, you are not alone. It’s not something most people are used to, especially if they grew up with a furnace to heat the home. A furnace is separate from an air conditioner, and it contains an indoor unit only (with no outside portion).

But a heat pump is different. A heat pump is an all-in-one heating and air conditioning system. And most of the same components that are used for air conditioning are also used for heating. That means that you can expect to hear the outside unit running when the heat is on.

Why Does the Outside Unit for the Heat Pump Run in Winter?

Monday, January 9th, 2017

Many of us grew up with conventional furnaces as whole-house heating systems. This system is separate from an air conditioner, which means that—of course—the air conditioning unit does not run when the heater does.

However, a heat pump is different. It’s an all-in-one heating and air conditioning system that utilizes refrigerant in a process that completes two different tasks, heating and cooling. You may be surprised to hear your outdoor unit running when the heat comes on—but that’s just how it works.

Why a Heat Pump Is the Only Home Comfort Installation You Need

Monday, August 22nd, 2016

For a long time, the furnace was the only option available for people who wanted to keep the entire home warm via an air duct system. The standard setup for most homes with comfort systems involves a furnace and a separate air conditioner, but it’s no longer the only way to go.

Why Heat Pumps Should Have Professional Maintenance Twice a Year

Monday, December 7th, 2015

We recommend that any air conditioner or heating system receives a professional maintenance visit once a year. Annual maintenance visits ensure that the components are in proper working order, or you can find out about any issues within the system that need repair. This means that your heating and cooling equipment is more likely to run properly and less likely to break down in extreme temperatures. But a heat pump requires a little more attention than your average heater or air conditioner.
