Pump In the Heat

Pump In the Heat

Whether you’ve been considering ways to keep your home cozy throughout the winter or help cool it down for the summer, you may want to think about having a heat pump installed sooner rather than later. Don’t be fooled by the name, as heat pumps aren’t all they seem to be. During the summer, a heat pump moves the heat from your house to the outdoors, while on cool winter days they bring warmth into your home. A heat pump can do both of these things for far less than what it would cost to run a furnace or central air conditioner.

But that begs the question of what type of heat pump should you get. Your friendly neighborhood HVAC maintenance pros at Bounds Heating & Air are here to help answer that question.

Air-Source Heat Pumps

The most common type of heat pump installed is the air-source heat pump, which has two components; the indoor unit which handles air, and an outdoor unit which is the heat pump itself. Current air-source heat pumps can reduce heating costs by up to 50% as compared to furnaces and other heaters, while at the same time dehumidifying better than your standard air conditioner.

Split-Ductless Heat Pumps

A split-ductless heat pump has two units, with the indoor unit being installed on a high wall or a ceiling. This type of heat pump doesn’t need ductwork, so it’s usually installed in a single room, enabling it to avoid the energy losses that come with ductwork. This type of pump also offers design flexibility. Hiring a professional HVAC repair company is advisable for the installation of a split-ductless pump. as this is not a DIY job.

Geothermal Heat Pumps

Geothermal heat pumps move heat with a water solution via pipes buried underground. Geothermal heat pumps can also control humidity, allowing for a 25-50% reduction in home energy use as compared to other heating and cooling systems. At the same time, they’re low-maintenance as well. There are a couple downsides to geothermal heat pumps, however: they aren’t practical for small areas, for one thing. and they can also be expensive to install.
