Heat Pumps

Stay comfortable while controlling your energy cost with a heat pump

The most economical way to keep your home comfortable year-round is by installing an energy-efficient electric heat pump. A heat pump is the most advanced and efficient heating and cooling system available today. The technologically-advanced heat pump keeps your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer — with one amazing piece of equipment. It's also a wise energy investment that can result in major savings on monthly energy bills for many homeowners.

Choose the best heat pump for your home

Heat pumps come in a variety of types. We can help you determine the type of heat pump and size that fits your home so you'll be comfortable season after season.

  • Air Source Heat Pump - This is the most common electric heat pump. It uses an outdoor unit and outside air to transfer the heat.

  • Geothermal Heat Pump - This particular heat pump uses the near-constant temperature of the earth for its heat source. It uses special water piping and the earth to transfer heat. If you do not want a heat pump sitting outside your home, we suggest choosing a geothermal heat pump.

  • Dual-fuel (piggyback) Heat Pump - If you have a relatively new gas or propane furnace, the dual-fuel heat pump may be a better choice than simply replacing an old air conditioner unit. This furnace provides the heat you'll need on the colder winter days.

  • Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) or Ductless Heat Pumps - These mini-split and multi-split systems function much like traditional heat pumps. A ductless system, however, has one or more wall or ceiling mounted indoor units that are connected to an outside unit by refrigerant lines.
