Here’s a Little Secret: Heat Pumps Are The Way To Go

thumbs-upHey you…yeah, you! We are going to let you in on a little secret. That’s right, we are going to tell you all about a nifty, little HVAC system called the heat pump. Heat pump? What’s that? you ask. Keep reading and you’ll find out!

Okay, but in all seriousness, we can’t think of many reasons why you wouldn’t want to make the switch to a heat pump –they’re efficient, effective, and becoming quite popular for their ability to provide year-round comfort with just the flip of a switch (but more on that later!)

In case you aren’t yet convinced, we have listed just some of the reasons why we think you should consider a heat pump. Keep reading below to find out more! 

What is a Heat Pump?

A heat pump works much like a standard air conditioner, relying on the flow of refrigerant to transfer heat from one place to another. But what sets the heat pump apart from a standard AC is the reversing valve, which is used to reverse the direction the refrigerant flows through the system.


Because reversing the flow of refrigerant allows for home heating in addition to cooling. That’s right! With just one system you can both heat and cool your home!

So, What are the Benefits?

As we already mentioned above, there are plenty of benefits of switching to a heat pump, including:


Heat pumps are considered to be one of the most efficient home comfort systems on the market today. This is because they do not generate their own heat, but rather move it from one place to another, allowing them to operate on minimal power. When you make the switch to a heat pump, you will be sure to notice lower bills and increased savings!


Because the heat pump comes fully equipped with a reversing valve, you’ll be able to enjoy year-round comfort with just the flip of a switch. Not only that, but heat pumps also come in both ducted and ductless models, so no matter the layout and size of your home, we can find a heat pump that best suits your needs.

Cost and Convenience

When you invest in a heat pump, you will no longer have to worry about the price of maintaining two different HVAC systems. This is because a heat pump eliminates the need to own both a heater and an air conditioner. When you make the switch, you won’t be left to deal with costly repairs and untimely repairs nearly as much!
