Air-to-Air Heat Pumps

Heat pumps are an energy-efficient option to furnaces and conditioners for climates that require moderate heating or cooling. Heat pumps Haverhill work in the same way as a refrigerator by using electricity to heat a space. The warm space becomes warmer and the space cools down. Heat pumps can provide space conditioning equivalent to conventional heating and cooling at a quarter of the cost. | 24/7 Emergency Service Available | TOLL-FREE: (800) 942-8555 | LOCAL: (978) 352-7900

The air-source heat pumps are the most popular type of heat pump. They transfer heat from your home to the outside air. The heat pump can reduce electricity usage by up to 50% when compared with electric resistance heating like baseboard heaters or furnaces. The high-efficiency heat pump also dehumidifies more efficiently than standard central air conditioners. This results in lower energy consumption and greater cooling comfort during the summer months.

Types of Air Source Heat Pumps

Below are descriptions of the different types and uses for air source heat pumps.

Ductless vs. ducted vs. short-run Ducted: Ductless applications are easy to construct as a 3-inch hole is needed through the wall to connect the outdoor condenser with the indoor heads. Often, ductless systems can be installed as an addition to existing structures. Ducted systems simply use ductwork. This system might be worth considering if your home has a ventilation system, or if you are building a new home. Traditional large ductwork only runs through a portion of the house. Short-run ducted is a traditional type of large ductwork. For the rest of the house, short-run ductwork is often complemented with other ductless units.

Split vs. Packaged: Split-system heat pumps have one coil inside and one exterior coil. The indoor central fan is connected to the supply and return ducts. Most packaged systems have both the fan outside and coils. The ductwork runs through walls or roofs to deliver heated or cooled air to the interior.

Multi-Zone vs. Single-Zone: Single-zone systems can be used in a single room and have one outdoor condenser that matches one indoor head. Multi-zone installations may have multiple indoor coils linked to one outdoor condenser. Multi-zone indoor coils come in a variety of sizes and styles. Each creates its own “zone”, which allows you to heat and cool specific rooms, hallways, or open spaces. This distinction can also be called “multi-head, single-head” or “multiport, single-port”.

Geothermal Systems

Heat Your House with Dirt

Look no further if you are looking to cut down on your energy consumption and save money. Geothermal heat pump systems are the most efficient and cost-effective systems available on the market. They also offer the best heating and cooling technology. This technology makes use of the earth’s relatively constant temperature to provide hot water, heating, and cooling. Switching to a geothermal system can earn you tax credits!

Geothermal Advantages:

  • Environmentally friendly
  • Energy efficient
  • Lower operating costs
  • Tax credits available
  • Reliability
  • Quiet system

Geothermal heat pumps provide reliable, natural heat and financial independence by saving you money. These systems are 25% to 50% cheaper than traditional systems and can save you up to 70% on your energy bills depending on where you live and what Geothermal System is used.

You can sign up for a maintenance agreement when you have a geothermal system installed. This will ensure that your system is maintained annually, and repairs are made as necessary.

Which Heat Pumps Are Better?

Energy efficiency is an important consideration. keep in mind that when making your choice, that low operating costs can only provide comfort if you have high repair and service bills. Do not be sold solely on energy efficiency.

Rheem is a manufacturer that has installed the Compliant Scroll(r), the industry’s best compressor, in all its residential heat pump lines.

What Do I/You really Need to Know About SEER & HSPF?

All heating and air conditioning equipment manufacturers are required by the Department of Energy to rate and evaluate their equipment’s efficiency on a seasonal basis. These ratings are called the SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating) for air conditioners and the HSPF (Heating Seasonal Performance Factor) for heating equipment.

Both numbers are used by heat pumps. Heat pumps that have higher SEER ratings or HSPF ratings are more efficient. Higher efficiency units are more expensive. However, high-efficiency units are more expensive than lower operating costs. This means that the payback time may be shorter than what you think. A heat pump with a high SEER/HSPF rating can also add value to your home, which is very important for today’s energy-conscious homeowners.

Exterior Features Are Important?

Absolutely. To protect the condensing unit against outdoor hazards, look for features like a louvered, galvanized-steel cabinet. For added durability and aesthetic appeal, powder-paint the cabinet with a high-quality enamel.

Some brands are quieter than others?

Some outdoor fans can make a loud noise and cause problems. The grille design of Rheem units allows for quieter operation. The fan is also mounted on the grille’s underside. It protects the fan from the elements and directs airflow upward away from shrubbery and plants.
