Having heat pumps in your home can prevent blackouts, power surges and protect against dangerous electrical waste. Heat pumps are mostly used in the winter for heating and are very energy efficient and cost-effective. Did you know that heat pumps can also cool down your home in the summer months? They don’t deplete the ozone and have limited harmful emissions as well.
Used for optimizing heating and cooling processes and increasing efficiency, a heat pump is an outdoor device that moves heat in and out of your house. There are many types but the most common are air-source heat pumps and ground-source heat pumps or geothermal heat pumps. A heat pump works to create a comfortable environment with organic air flow in your natural surroundings.
There are three primary types of heat pumps we work with, including:
Our technicians can install, repair, and maintain any type of heat pump.
Air-Source heat pumps use outside air which contains heat even in cold temperatures. As a result, heat pumps offer low cost heating and cooling, and almost four times as much heat as electric heaters (though they use the same amount of energy). Other benefits of air-source heat pumps:
A ductless mini split heat pump is perfect for home add-ons or renovations without existing ductwork. The lack of air ducts ensures your new heat pump system is more cost effective and easy to install.
Today’s top solar heat pump systems utilize an efficient solar thermal panel to extract heat from the outdoors and keep your home warm during the winter. Essentially, the heat moves instead of being artificially created, which makes the system up to three times more efficient.
A ground-source heat pump or geothermal heat pump uses underground earth temperatures to heat or cool. This geothermal heat pump is very energy efficient since it exchanges heat with the ground and underground temperatures are fairly stable over time. Underground temperatures are cool during the summer and warm during the winter so geothermal heat pumps provide the ideal heat and air throughout the year.
Using a geothermal heat pump can offer you many benefits, such as:
Most homes in Minneapolis rely on a heat pump to heat their home and their water. But heat pumps are important in the summer as well since they also control the cooling of your home. […] Read More
