Heat Pump Installation and Repair
Throughout PA & Maryland, area homes are realizing the benefits of adding a residential heat pump to their HVAC system. Heat pumps are highly efficient — through the refrigeration process, they use the energy present in the air or the ground to keep your home cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
Adding a heat pump to your home can often save you from 25-75% on your monthly utility bills. Heat pumps can work with your existing HVAC appliance or replace them completely, so you’ll always have reliable heating and cooling whenever you need it. Heat pumps can also be less expensive to operate than oil boilers or gas furnaces and generally require less maintenance. Heat pumps for homes typically have a much longer lifespan than traditional heating systems — some units are designed to last up to 50 years!

Homes and businesses can count on us for efficient heat pump service, expert repairs, and a great selection of products by some of today’s best HVAC manufacturers.

How It Works
Traditional air-source heat pumps for homes can be installed as a complete stand-alone heating and cooling system, or they can replace your AC unit and work with a fossil fuel furnace. A heat pump is simply an AC unit with additional components built-in to allow the refrigeration to flow in the opposite direction and transfer heat to the home. Most air source heat pumps are an efficient method of heating your home when the outdoor temperature is above 25°F. Below this temperature, the performance levels are reduced and your home may require supplemental heat. A stand-alone system will require an auxiliary electric heat kit. If a home heat pump is installed to work with a furnace, the furnace will automatically provide the home’s heating needs once the outdoor temperature drops below 25°F.
Geothermal Home Heat Pump Systems
Geothermal or ground-source heat pumps for homes are intended to replace your existing furnace and air conditioner. They use the natural heating and cooling properties of the earth. During the winter, when the ground is warmer than the air, a geothermal pump cycles this heat into your home. In the summer, the cool ground acts as a sink and absorbs warmth. Geothermal Heat pumps also require only a small amount of energy to operate — far less than it takes to run your furnace or A/C. By reducing your reliance on these energy-intensive appliances, you can save considerably without sacrificing your home comfort.
