Looking for a way to make your home more energy efficient? Consider installing a heat pump. Do you live or work in a building with separate heating and cooling systems? Are you looking for ways to conserve energy and lower your monthly energy bills? Are you completing construction on a new building, and have reached the point of HVAC installation? Whether you’re upgrading an existing system or installing a new one, for optimum energy-efficiency, consider pump installation.Learn more by visiting Action Air Conditioning Installation & Heating of Temecula
Heat pumps work by moving warmth around, rather than using energy to generate heat. In the winter, a pump can draw warmth from the air or ground outside into your building. In the summer, a pump can expel warm air from your interior spaces. You can install a pump to work in conjunction with a furnace and air conditioning system, or, if you live in a fairly temperate climate, as your sole heating and cooling mechanism. Either way, you should see your energy bills go down dramatically.
Why is heat pump installation such a money-saver? By redistributing warmth rather than making it, heat pumps require less electricity than air conditioners, furnaces, and boilers. If you have a heat pump in addition to traditional HVAC units, those units won’t have to work as hard to keep your building’s interior comfortable year-round. Meanwhile, a pump alone uses far less energy than separate heating and cooling systems. Consuming less energy leads directly to lower energy bills.
If you decide that heat pump installation is right for your home or commercial space, call in an HVAC contractor. During your consultation, your contractor will:
Discuss what type of heat pump to install. Air-source pumps transfer heat in the air between the inside and outside of your building. Ground-source pumps, also known as geothermal pumps, run pipes underground to take advantage of warmth in the ground. Air-source pumps work well in moderate climates, but if you live in an area that sees cold winters, a geothermal pump might be a better bet.
Discuss what size and model heat pump is right for your space. When you install a heat pump, you want to be sure it’s powerful enough to handle its job, but not so powerful that you’re using more energy than you need to keep your space temperature-regulated. A professional HVAC contractor can examine your space and choose the right size pump, for best results. Depending on whether or not your building has ductwork in place, you’ll also choose either a standard pump or a ductless model.
Discuss proper placement for the unit. You want your pump to be able to do its job effectively without driving your family or your employees crazy due to the noise of its cycling on and off. That means installing it in a location that’s out of the way while still being effective.
Once all of the necessary decisions have been made, and your ductwork and existing HVAC systems have been examined, the heating and cooling contractor can conduct the installation process for your new heat pump. After everything is in place and hooked up, he will do a post-installation inspection to ensure that your pump is ready to get right to work. Then, you can start reaping the benefits, in the form of a more comfortable space that costs less to heat and cool.
