Heat Pump Installation, Shrewsbury MA, Worcester MA, Northborough MA, Oxford MA, Charlton MA, Leominster MAHeat Pumps are becoming more and more popular and efficient. But how do they work and what makes them so efficient? Here’s a few basic things to know about them.

A heat pump is a machine that uses a small amount of energy to force heat into an area. Heat pumps can also be reversed to provide a cooling effect like air conditioning.

One advantage of a heat pump is that you do not have to install two separate systems.

For example, if you have a traditional furnace you have to install an air conditioning unit separate from your furnace to provide cooling. Heat pumps can be all one unit.

Heat pumps are also extremely efficient.

Since they do not burn fuel for heating, they simply just transfer the heat, which is helpful to ease stress on your furnace if you’re using a heat pump supplementally. Heat pumps will save you any where from 30-40% on your heating bills but make sure to keep up on their maintenance. Neglect over time will lead to failure of the heat pump. If properly maintained heat pumps can last well over 10 years.

Heat pumps can now work in New England climates!
Early heat pumps couldn’t keep up with the consistent below freezing temperatures of New England winters and were usually found in milder climates. Now, newer pumps work efficiently even to -30 degrees!

Heat pumps come in all shapes and sizes.
If you need to heat a less insulated room that tends to be warmer or cooler than other rooms in your home or office, a small heat pump can work in conjunction with your current ventilation system to keep that room comfortable. You can also use a larger heat pump for your entire home or office.
