About Heat Pumps
Electric air-source heat pumps are very popular in the Baltimore area because of our moderate climate. They use the difference between outdoor air temperatures and indoor air temperatures to cool and heat your home all year round. Heat Pumps are a very energy efficient source when properly maintained and can offer home owners huge savings over older or outdated systems.
Over the past two decades manufacturers have improved the efficiency of heat pumps to the point where a new system can actually reduce home heating and cooling costs by up to 50% over systems installed in the late 70’s and early 80’s. So, in many cases it can be less expensive in the long run to replace an older heat pump than it is to repair it.
When buying new heat pump equipment, you should be informed about the getting the right size so that it will meet but not exceed your needs. Having it properly installed is as important as the quality of any heat pump.
When it comes time to replace an older furnace in an existing central heating system, or to install a completely new system, you want equipment that minimizes costs and delivers dependable office comfort for your family – season after season. The best furnaces are much more efficient than ever before. They keep a home warm and comfortable. They provide steady, dependable performance year after year. And they are quiet, long-lasting and low in service frequency and cost. The most efficient furnaces tap the energy of the hot vent gases. A high-efficiency furnace can cost a little extra up front, but it can make up the difference by reducing operating costs over the long run. And with today’s consumer interest in efficiency, such equipment enhances the bottom line of your home.
