Heat pumps are growing immensely in popularity in New England each year. As fuel costs continue to rise people are looking for alternatives to using fuel to heat their homes. A heat pump is the perfect application for anyone looking to save money on their fuel costs. Heat pumps are placed inside the condenser of an A/C unit. Heat pumps work by reversing the air conditioing process in your home. In the summer time, your A/C removes heat from inside your home to the outside thus lowering the temperature in your home. In the cold months, a heat pump works by removing heat and humidity from the outside air to the inside of your home. Its a very interesting process but happens to be very energy efficient.
Heat pumps are found in ducted split systems and ductless mini-split systems. We recommend two different manufacturers for heat pumps. Maytag HVAC makes a split system heat pump with the longest parts warranty in the industry. They have a 12 year parts warranty and a 12 year Dependability Promise on their units. For more information on Maytag split system heat pumps, call/email us, or feel free to check out the Maytag Heat Pump page to find the unit that's best for you!
We also recommend looking into a ductless mini-split heat pump. Mitsubishi HVAC makes one of the best mini-split heat pumps in the industry. We are a Mitsubishi Electric professional installer, meaning you get a 7 year warranty on your unit instead of a 5 year warranty from a Mitsubishi dealer. Mini-split heat pumps are very popular among customers who don't have a central air system in their home. These ductless units work extremely well and are extremely efficient. Call or email us to find out which unit is right for you. Learn more on how a mini-split system works by checking out the Mitsubishi HVAC page.
