Heat pumps can provide both heating and cooling to your home and are a more efficient alternative to electric heat. Heat pumps work the same way as air conditioners for cooling, and work in reverse for heating. Heat pump systems generally have a backup heating source, such as electric heat to ensure optimum comfort on those really cold days.
The efficiency of heat pumps are measured by Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating (SEER) and Heating Seasonal performance Factor (HSPF) ratings. The higher the SEER and HSPF ratings, the more efficient the system and the greater the energy savings. Heat pumps are also available with two-stage compressors and variable fan speeds for improved comfort.
With a heat pump system, a fan coil (air handler) is located inside the home and includes the fan and the heating/cooling coil. We have several options available including variable and multi-speed features that can deliver improved indoor comfort and reduced system noise.
Bacteria and mold can take advantage of the moisture on your indoor coil. Ultraviolet lamps can be installed near your existing indoor coil to kill the bacteria and mold before it is circulated throughout your home. Our skilled technician will install one or two lights per indoor coil to prevent bacteria and mold growth, and to kill any existing growth.
