HEAT PUMP SERVICES IN TAMPA, FLORIDA
Heat Pump Installation and Repair
A heat pump works like an air conditioner acting in reverse, effectively keeping your home cold in the summer as well as warm in the winter. Unlike conventional heating systems that produce heat, a heat pump simply moves heat.
During the summertime, heat pumps remove warm air from within your home and transport it outside. In the winter, the process works in reverse, pulling heat out of the air outside and transferring it into your home. Heat pumps can be used in conjunction with a furnace to keep your home warm on especially cold days.
Even without an additional furnace, many heat pumps come with an electrical heating element to help improve home heating on the rare occasion that the outside temperature drops below the heat pump’s ability to retrieve heat from outside.
Benefits of a Heat Pump
Installing a heat pump to provide both heat and air conditioning can provide a variety of benefits, including:
- Low maintenance costs
- Quiet operation
- A long lifespan
