Why Heat Pumps Are Popular Options

There are quite a few homeowners who use a heat pump system to keep them comfortable throughout the year. Why are these types of heating and cooling systems so popular? Here are some of the reasons we’ve heard from our customers:

  • Ability to heat and cool with one device – a system that provides both heating and cooling is very convenient.
  • Very good energy efficiency – when you use a heat pump system, you won’t need to use any kind of fossil fuel to heat your home during the winter and you’ll use about half the amount of electricity of a traditional AC to cool it.
  • Versatility – heat pumps can be used with different types of systems, such as geothermal and high velocity, and they can be either ducted or ductless.
  • Longer lifespan – heat pumps typically last between 20–25 years versus traditional heating and cooling systems, which typically last about 15 years.

Bi–Annual Maintenance: The Key to Keeping Your Heat Pump Running Well

One major difference that sets heat pumps apart from separate heating and cooling systems is their need for professional maintenance twice a year. Why twice a year? Your heat pump is a device that provides both heating and cooling. This means your heat pump will accrue twice the amount of wear and tear as a system that only runs for part of the year. But you don’t have to worry about conducting this maintenance yourself, nor should you attempt to do so. Instead, call our pros.

Our experts will conduct a thorough, full tune–up on your heat pump system so that your system stays efficient and provides you with the comfort you need. We will examine your heat pump, find any outstanding issues, clean it, change the air filter, check the refrigerant level and conduct performance testing, just to name a few of the tasks involved. When you need your heat pump properly maintained, Fulmer Heating & Cooling is the place to call!
