A heat pump is an electric unit that is able to both heat and cool your building. As with air conditioning, heat pumps work in a split system design to keep your building comfortable all year long. A heat pump is typically more efficient than a gas furnace. Heat pumps can also be used in hybrid system installations for maximum efficiency. Heat pumps efficiency levels are measured in Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating (SEER) for cooling and Heating Seasonal Performance Factor (HSPF) for heating.
Whether you are considering renovations to your current building or building new, heat pumps may be a viable solution for the heating and cooling needs of your property. These all-in-one heating and cooling systems work much like an air conditioner during warmer months to cool your space. During cooler months, these systems perform the opposite function; efficiently heating your space when it’s cold outside. As a result, you can be assured of superior comfort… all year round.
Cutting-edge technology, high efficiency ratings and only the highest levels of quality ensure that your heat pump will keep you comfortable throughout the year. Offering a wide array of groundbreaking and exclusive features, our heat pumps are among the most energy efficient on the market today.
We’re proud to offer a wide variety of new heat pumps to all our valued clients.
When using a heat pump to heat and cool your business, an air handler replaces the conventional design of a furnace and evaporator coil.
An air handler is also referred to as a fan coil (usually based on installation design), but in a very basic sense, an air handler is a combination of an evaporator coil and the variable speed fan. In a residential home it is normally installed in the same space as a furnace/evaporator combo. How a heat pumps work:
When you think about cooling a hot building, you probably don’t think of heat pumps. In fact, the words “air conditioner” are likely the first things that come to your head. As it turns out, a heat pump can both heat and cool, and in some applications, it’s preferred to separate heating and cooling systems.
Simply put, a heat pump is a device that uses a small amount of energy to move heat from one location to another. Not too difficult, right? Heat pumps are typically used to pull heat out of the air or ground to heat your office building, but they can be reversed to cool a building. In a way, if you know how an air conditioner works, then you already know a lot about how a heat pump works. This is because heat pumps and air conditioners operate in a very similar way.
One of the biggest advantages of a heat pump over a standard heating ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) unit is that there’s no need to install separate systems to heat and cool your business. Heat pumps also work extremely efficiently, because they simply transfer heat, rather than burn fuel to create it. This makes them a little greener than a gas-burning furnace. And they don’t just heat and cool buildings. If you’ve ever enjoyed a hot tub or heated swimming pool, then you probably have a heat pump to thank.
