Heat Pump Systems, More Than Just Home Heating.

Heat Pump Systems, More Than Just Home Heating.

Heat pump systems are more than just a way to heat a home. They offer a variety of benefits to homeowners, such as energy efficiency, improved indoor air quality, and cost savings. Heat pump systems are becoming increasingly popular for residential and commercial properties as they are an alternative to traditional heating systems.
Heat pumps are an efficient way to heat a home as they take advantage of the natural heat transfer process. Heat pumps use the outside air to heat or cool a home. This process is much more efficient than burning fuel to generate heat. By using the natural heat transfer process, heat pumps can reduce energy consumption by up to 70%. This reduction in energy consumption translates to energy savings and a lower monthly energy bill.
Heat pumps offer improved indoor air quality by removing allergens and pollutants from the air. The air is filtered and circulated through the system to create a healthier home environment. This makes heat pumps an ideal option for people with allergies or asthma.
Heat pumps are also a cost-effective way to heat a home. Heat pumps are usually cheaper to install than traditional heating systems and require less maintenance. Additionally, the energy savings from the heat pump can offset the cost of installation.
Heat pumps are a great option for homeowners looking to reduce their energy consumption and improve their indoor air quality. Heat pumps offer energy savings, improved indoor air quality, and cost savings. With so many benefits, it is no surprise that heat pump systems are becoming an increasingly popular choice for homeowners.
 
Heat pumps are an attractive alternative to furnaces and air conditioners for people living in all climates due to their energy efficiency. Heat pumps use a small amount of energy to move heat from one place to another, making them far more efficient than traditional heating and cooling systems. They operate using a refrigeration system, transferring heat from outside air into the home during the winter and removing heat from inside the home, and transferring it outside during the summer. This makes them an energy-efficient choice for both heating and cooling.
Heat pumps are also a great option for climates with mild winters and hot summers. They can be used to both heat and cool the home without having to switch between a furnace and an air conditioner. They are also capable of providing supplemental heat during particularly cold periods, reducing the burden on the main heating system.
Heat pumps provide an energy-efficient alternative to furnaces and air conditioners for all climates. Their use of a refrigeration system to transfer heat makes them far more efficient than traditional heating and cooling systems. Additionally, they are well-suited for climates with mild winters and hot summers, providing both heating and cooling while eliminating the need to switch between systems. Heat pumps are an attractive option for people looking to save energy and money.

FAQ

  • What are mini-split advantages?

    Just as the name implies, a “mini-split” system is a “split system” however available in smaller capacities, for single room to whole house conditioning. Mini-split systems may range from as small as 9,000 BTUh per hour, comparable to say, a small window AC unit, for individual room use, up to 4 and 5 ton capacities for “Room By Room” (also known as “Zoning”) and whole house conditioning. With near universal design, mini-splits are “heat pumps” which provide both heating and cooling for a home. Here are key advantages when compared to traditional split systems:

    Efficiency- Mini-splits are highly engineered systems which offer attractive operating efficiencies, in many instances, eligible for utility company rebates.
    Heat Pump- Most mini-split systems are heat pumps, providing year-round comfort.
    Solar friendly- Due to very low power requirements, mini-splits are an ideal complement to “Net Zero Energy” homes, or any home using renewable power.
    Carbon footprint- Mini-splits are 100% electric, with zero operating emissions of any type.
    Zoning- Most mini-split manufacturers offer systems capable of room-by-room “zoning”, to account for peak demands of a room based upon construction type, exposure orientation and usage.
    Variable capacity- Mini-splits are typically DC inverter driven. That is, a variable speed compressor which modulates in proportion to instantaneous demand. Most conventional split systems, by comparison, operate with an ON-OFF strategy. (Would you use an ON-OFF switch as the accelerator in your vehicle?)
    Location, Location, Location!- Mini-split outdoor units are compact; they can be located far away from noise-sensitive areas, such as bedrooms and home offices. Mini-split indoor units have the ability to be installed where conventional systems cannot.
    They’re perfect for additions and remodels where access to current HVAC system is difficult to access.
    Modern mini-split systems are remarkably quiet; in fact, many times their operation is unnoticed by the end user.

  • Furnace is blowing cold air in Winter?

    This can be due to Ignition lockout, sometimes could be resolved by resetting the power  and if this does not resolve the issue you should contact a certified gas technician from A-Plus Quality to get this problem resolved!

  • Why is there ice building up on the copper pipes?

    There can be many reasons why the refrigerant pipes are freezing up but the most common issue is low refrigerant levels. If your AC unit has ice buildup turn off the unit for at least 4 hours and call us at 416-410-0337

  • What is a mini-split?

    By definition, and simply put, a “Split System” is a heating and air conditioning system which has two main components, the indoor unit and outdoor unit. In short, the indoor unit absorbs heat energy in the cooling mode, and the outdoor unit rejects the very heat absorbed by the indoor unit. And the cycle is repeated until the set temperature is met. Although the indoor and outdoor units are located in physically different, hence “split” locations, they are connected and operate as, one system; continuously circulating refrigerant liquid and vapor by means of interconnecting, dehydrated copper refrigerant lines, commonly referred to as a “Line Set”.

  • What is a heat pump?

    Heat pumps use electricity to move heat from a cool space to a warm space, making the cool space cooler and the warm space warmer. During the heating season, heat pumps move heat from the cool outdoors into your warm house and during the cooling season, heat pumps move heat from your cool house into the warm outdoors. Because they move heat rather than generate heat, heat pumps can provide equivalent space conditioning at as little as one quarter of the cost of operating conventional heating or cooling appliances.
