Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is a heat pump and how does it work?
    A heat pump is a device that transfers heat from one place to another. In the winter, it extracts heat from the outside air and transfers it inside to warm your home. In the summer, it does the opposite by removing heat from your home and releasing it outside, functioning like an air conditioner.
  • Are heat pumps efficient?
    Yes, heat pumps are generally very efficient. They can produce up to 3 times more heat energy than the electrical energy they consume.
  • Can a heat pump replace my existing furnace or air conditioner?
    It depends on your climate. In milder climates, a heat pump can replace both heating and cooling systems. In colder regions, a heat pump can be paired with a furnace for efficient hybrid heating.
  • How long does a typical heat pump last?
    With proper maintenance, a heat pump can last between 10 to 15 years, though some high-quality models can last even longer.
  • Do heat pumps work in cold climates?
    Modern heat pumps are designed to work in colder temperatures than older models. However, their efficiency may decrease as temperatures drop below freezing. In very cold climates, they might be used in conjunction with another heating source.
  • How often should I service my heat pump?
    For optimal performance and longevity, it's recommended to have your heat pump serviced annually by a professional.
  • What's the difference between a heat pump and a traditional AC unit?
    While both systems can cool a home, a heat pump can also provide heat by reversing its operation, making it a versatile choice for both heating and cooling needs.
  • Is it expensive to run a heat pump?
    While the initial cost can be higher than traditional systems, the operational costs of heat pumps are generally lower, and they can lead to energy savings in the long run.
  • Can a heat pump also dehumidify my home?
    Yes, when operating in cooling mode, a heat pump dehumidifies your home similarly to how an air conditioner does.
  • What is a furnace and how does it work?
    A furnace is a device that heats air in your home using fuel or electricity. The warmed air is then distributed throughout the house via ducts.
  • How often should I have my furnace serviced?
    We recommend an annual check-up and maintenance to ensure your furnace operates efficiently and safely.
  • How long does a typical furnace last?
    With proper maintenance, a furnace can last between 15 to 20 years, though this can vary based on the model and usage.
  • My furnace is making strange noises. Is this normal?
    While some noises are a normal part of furnace operation, unusual or loud noises might indicate a problem. It's best to have a technician inspect any concerning sounds.
  • What's the difference between a single-stage and a two-stage furnace?
    A single-stage furnace operates at one speed, delivering maximum heat whenever it's on. A two-stage furnace can operate at a high and a low speed, offering more energy-efficient heating on milder days.
  • How can I improve my furnace's efficiency?
    Regular maintenance, changing or cleaning filters monthly, ensuring proper insulation in your home, and using a programmable thermostat can all help in improving your furnace's efficiency.
  • When should I consider replacing my furnace?
    If your furnace is over 15 years old, requires frequent repairs, or your energy bills are steadily increasing, it might be time to consider a replacement.
  • Is it safe to keep items close to my furnace?
    For safety reasons, it's recommended to keep the area around your furnace clear. Store combustible items at a safe distance.
