Benefits of Heat Pumps
Heat pumps are a very effective alternative to an electric heat system. A heat pump performs similar to how air conditioning works during the warm months, but it works in reverse during the cold months to heat your house. The system is typically matched with a backup heat source for those particularly cold days in winter.
New Heat Pump Installation
If your existing heating system is not working for you as well as you’d like, call Armbrust Plumbing & Heating Solutions to learn more about the benefits of a new heat pump. We can assist you in selecting a heat pump and then professionally install it for you. The starting point of the process is to accurately “size” a heating system to your residence or business. If you already have a heat pump we can check for similar measurements, but it’s a smart idea to also have an updated heat-load calculation done to confirm the dimensions are accurate. Too big and it could case the system to cycle on and off, wearing down the compressor and condenser motor. A heat pump that’s too small for a home or business, on the other hand, simply won’t produce sufficient heat.
Heat Pump Replacement
There are a variety of reasons why you may want to think about upgrading your HVAC system or replacing your current heat pump. To begin with, there is the efficiency factor. Heating technologies continue to advance quickly. If you have a heating system or heat pump that is over 10 years old, it could be the right time to see what new technologies have to offer for your home’s comfort. New model heat pumps may be able to deliver efficiency that’s as much as 50 percent higher than your present model.
