Heat Pumps

If it’s time for a new heating system in your home, a heat pump is definitely something you should consider. These systems are energy efficient, environmentally friendly, and can supply you with a comfortable indoor environment all year long. In fact, most people don’t realize it, but heat pumps are capable of not only heating your home during the winter, but cooling it during the summer.

If you’d like to learn more about these great systems, give DB Heating & Cooling, Inc. a call today. Our Bergen County area heat pump experts will be glad to answer any questions you may have about the products and services we offer and schedule an appointment to visit your home. We install heat pumps in homes all over the region, and we provide full repair and maintenance services to keep them running smoothly for years.

Teaneck Heating and Cooling Tip

One great new feature in heat pumps that is making them more energy efficient is a two–speed compressor. A two–speed compressor is allows your heat pump to only produce enough heating (or cooling) as necessary to keep your home comfortable instead of running at full capacity all the time. This not only saves energy but also reduces wears on its parts. If you are thinking about having a new heat pump installed, ask your contractor about features such as a two–speed compressor.

How Heat Pumps Work

As their name implies, heat pumps move heat from one area to another. Of course, so do most other home heating and cooling systems, so what makes heat pumps so special? Unlike furnaces that take in fuel and burn it to create heat, heat pumps don’t generate their own heat. Instead they extract it. In the winter they take heat from the air outside and transfer it to the indoor air, which is then circulated through your home.

In the summer, the process is reversed, and your heat pump can remove heat from your indoor air and send it outside to keep the indoors cool and comfortable. So rather than installing a separate heating and cooling system, the heat pump provides both functions in one compact, affordable system.

Heat Pump Sizing & Efficiency

Once you understand how heat pumps work, it’s easy to see why they’re so much more energy efficient than many other home heating and cooling systems. But heat pumps come in a variety of sizes and with varying efficiency ratings, so you want to make sure you evaluate the specifications of all of the systems you’re pricing before you make your selection.

You should also make sure that the heat pump unit you choose is the right size for your home. Even if you choose the most energy efficient model on the market, you won’t get optimal results if the unit is too small or too large for your home. Paying more for a larger unit than you need is certainly a waste of money, as you won’t be taking advantage of the extra capacity you’re paying for.

And if you purchase a unit that’s too small, you’ll never really attain that level of indoor comfort you’re looking for. You’ll also be negating whatever energy efficiency that smaller unit had because it must work constantly to try and get the temperature to the point you desire. Taking on this excess workload means that your heat pump will use more energy than necessary to heat and cool your home and it will likely wear out and need repairs or replacement more quickly.

Heat Pump Installation

Installing a new heat pump is a relatively simple process, but one that should only be attempted by trained professionals. Just selecting a model requires a lot of research and careful analysis of your home’s heating and cooling needs. If you’re considering a heat pump for year–round home comfort, call the heat pump experts at DB Heating & Cooling, Inc.. We have the training and equipment needed to do the job right every time, and our technicians have years of experience installing heat pumps in Bergen County, NJ and Rockland County, NY homes.

Heat Pump Replacement

For the average homeowner, it isn’t easy to tell if a heat pump is on its last legs and needs to be replaced. Major appliance repairs come with the territory of home ownership, but at a certain point, when you are calling in a professional every three or four weeks to replace yet another part that has broken or stopped working on your heat pump, it may be time to start considering options beyond repair. When you do consider replacement consult the experts at DB Heating & Cooling, Inc.

Heat Pump Maintenance

Regular maintenance of your heat pump is designed to check for common problems. Often, dirty compressors and condenser coils will reduce the efficiency of the system, decreasing its ability to transfer heat or cooled air effectively into your home. Filters must also be checked regularly to remove any dirt or dust build up. These are all techniques that the technicians at DB Heating & Cooling, Inc. employ to ensure the integrity of your heat pump system is maintained. When you need a thorough tune up for your heat pump system just give us a call.
