Heat Pump Services
Heat pumps are a wonderful economically simple solution to heating your home in the fall and spring seasons here in central Illinois. For the more moderate seasons, heat pumps can be a cost efficient way to both heat and cool your home.
A heat pump is a standalone, two-component appliance that uses refrigeration and electricity to provide heating and cooling for your home. Essentially a heat pump works by circulating refrigerant through a cycle of evaporation and also condensation. A compressor ‘pumps’ or moves the refrigerant through coils. The coils work to evaporate at the low pressure stage and absorbs heat for redistribution. This allows you to only use your furnace when it’s really cold outside saving you both fuel like natural gas or propane and also electricity.
