Ring in the New Year With a Brand New Heat Pump!

2020 is just two days away, and if you haven’t made yourself a New Year’s resolution, make it this: better efficiency, greater comfort, and fewer repairs! How? Well, with a heat pump of course!

There are plenty of reasons to invest in a heat pump, and below, we have outlined some of these reasons for you. All you have to do is keep reading to find out more (and, as always, remember to call our team for your heating installation in Pasco County, FL.)

Wait, What Exactly is a Heat Pump?

Glad you asked! A heat pump works much like a traditional air conditioner, relying on the flow of refrigerant to transfer heat from one place to another. But what makes the difference between a standard AC and a heat pump is the reversing valve, which is used to reverse the direction the refrigerant flows through the system.


Well, you see, reversing the flow of refrigerant through the system allows for home heating in addition to cooling. That’s right: with just one system, you can both heat and cool your home! Pretty cool, huh?

And the Benefits?

Like we mentioned above, there are dozens of reasons to have a heat pump installed in your home. Here are just a few of them:

  • Better Efficiency: Heat pumps are one of the most energy-efficient HVAC systems on the market today. This is because they do not generate their own heat, but rather move it from one place to another. Switching to a heat pump is a great way to conserve energy and cut back on monthly spending.
  • Versatility: With just the flip of a switch, you’ll be able to enjoy year-round comfort! The reversing valve allows you to switch between “heating mode” and “cooling mode”, so no matter the temperature outside, you’ll be nice and comfortable inside!
  • Cost and Convenience: When you invest in a heat pump, you will no longer have to worry about the cost of maintaining two different HVAC systems, as a heat pump eliminates the need to own both an air conditioner and a heater.

Want One? Here’s How You Get One:

If you are interested in having a heat pump installed in your home, do not hesitate to call in a certified HVAC professional. Trust us, only a professional has the tools, knowledge, and expertise to match you with the system that is going to best meet your unique comfort and budget needs and install it accordingly.

And yes, while there may be plenty of amateurs willing to provide these services for a fairly cheap price, remember that sometimes an attempt to save money could end up costing you much more in the long run. See, when it comes to your comfort and your budget, you don’t want to take any risks—call in a pro the first time around!
