When energy efficiency is at the height of your concerns, heat pumps make sense. They take the place of a furnace and air conditioner (AC) by providing both heat and cool air whenever needed.
Our heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) experts at Banks Quarles can recommend a heat pump that fits both your comfort needs and your budget. You can expect the utmost in experience and professionalism from our team.
If you are considering a heat pump new installation or replacement, or if you are looking for repairs or maintenance, our licensed team lives up to our reputation.
How Are Heat Pump Systems Different?
Heat pumps work differently than more traditional heating and cooling systems. They offer an energy-efficient alternative to furnaces and air conditioners.
When the outdoor temperatures dip, heat pumps grab heat from the outdoors and move it into your Northport, AL, area home. Then during the warmer season, they transfer the heat from inside your home outdoors.
Because they move heat from one location to another rather than generate heat, heat pumps are very energy efficient, costing you much less in energy than conventional HVAC systems. Speak to one of our Banks Quarles heat pump specialists to discuss which heat pump would best suit your needs and budget.
What Are Some Heat Pump Benefits?
A heat pump’s energy efficiency is just one of multiple benefits and ways to save money year round. It can cut your electricity use for heating in half when compared to an electric furnace. If you have been thinking of switching to a heat pump, now may be the time.
Another advantage to a heat pump is your investment in just one unit instead of separate heating and cooling equipment. This means you typically will spend less money on installation and maintenance.
Our heat pump installation experts will take care of the service for you and advise you how to reduce your energy consumption and lower your Alabama home’s energy bills.
Heat Pump Installation
Our Banks Quarles experts can install a heat pump to serve as the central HVAC unit in your home. A single, central heat pump system relies on air ducts to circulate hot and cold air throughout your home, just as a furnace and air conditioner do.
We only work with the leading systems and materials, so you can be assured your heat pump will keep you comfortable for years.
When working with your air ducts, be sure to consider if you need to help improve your indoor air quality (IAQ), especially if you have someone in your home with chronic respiratory illnesses or allergies. We have several indoor air quality systems we can implement with your heat pump and ductwork.
If you prefer several ductless systems, rather than one central unit, we can help with that as well. These compact units are installed throughout your Alabama home and are a great solution for rooms without air ducts.
When it comes to heat pumps, another possibility is adding a heat pump to your existing HVAC system to improve heating efficiency. This is known as a dual-fuel system, consisting of a furnace and a heat pump working as a team to heat your home.
The heat pump serves as your primary heating source until the temperature drops too low for it to work at peak performance. At that point, the furnace kicks in and continues heating until the heat pump can take over again.
We can also help you with financing. Whether you are looking to add a more traditional heat pump or a ductless heat pump system, we have options to fit your particular needs.
