HEAT PUMP TECHNOLOGY
There are many benefits to the modern technology that One Hour technicians special in, including:
Heat pumps save you money by bypassing costly electricity and gas expenses, using instead a free and perpetually renewing source of energy.
A heat pump is safer to run than a system that relies on combustion.
As with all combustion systems, furnaces and other combustion-fueled heating equipment require extra maintenance. Even if properly cared for, these units can still develop unexpected complications. Heat pumps utilize a more stable energy source and, as a result, typically require less maintenance than combustion systems.
A heat pump is a complete HVAC system, pulling double duty in your home by providing both heating and cooling.
Heat pumps, again owing to their stable and safe energy source, are built to last much longer than other heating units.
SERVICING ALL HEAT PUMPS
Heat pumps are devices that move heat from one location to another location using mechanical means. There are two common types of heat pumps: air-source heat pumps and ground-source (geothermal) heat pumps, with variations on both, such as water-source and absorption models.
Air-Source Heat Pumps
An air-source heat pump can provide efficient heating and cooling for your home, especially if you live in a warm climate. When properly installed, an air-source heat pump can deliver one-and-a-half to three times more heat energy to a home compared to the electrical energy it consumes.
Ground-Source Heat Pumps
A ground-source heat pump system is a central heating and/or air conditioning system that actively pumps heat to or from the shallow ground. The geothermal heat pump uses the earth as either a source of heat in the winter, or as a coolant in the summer.
Absorption Heat Pumps
Absorption heat pumps are essentially air-source heat pumps driven not by electricity, but by a heat source such as natural gas or propane, or possibly a water source such as solar-heated or geothermal-heated water.
