Heat Pump Installation & Repair in Omaha, NE
If you’re looking for an efficient, eco-friendly way to regulate the temperature, a heat pump could be your best option! Whether your current heat pump needs repaired or you’re trying to decide which heat pump is right for your home or office, Controlled Comfort is the HVAC contractor to help you find the perfect solution!
What Is a Heat Pump?
While most air conditioners or furnaces rely on burning energy to produce heat, a heat pump uses movement to either absorb or release heat as it moves from one area to another. A heat pump is one of the most efficient and cost-saving heating and cooling systems available. There are two main types of heat pumps that Controlled Comfort installs and repairs in Omaha homes and businesses:
Air-to-Air: When you hear the term heat pump, air-to-air is the kind that most people are familiar with. Air-to-air heat pumps generate heat or cool your property by moving outside air inside or inside air outside, depending on the temperature.
Geothermal: Another option is a geothermal heat pump. By moving heat between your home and the ground underneath your home, geothermal pumps achieve maximum energy efficiency.
Our highly-trained heating and air specialists will determine the size, efficiency, and optimum location for your heat pump installation to maximize heat while minimizing expense!
How Does a Heat Pump Work in Cold Weather?
It might be hard to imagine how a heat pump can generate enough energy to keep you warm during the winter. While heat pumps do work in colder months, they have to work a lot harder. So while they’ll still keep your home warm, they’ll be less efficient in doing so and you might see your utility bill begin to rise again. Our HVAC technicians can help you decide if a heat pump is the most cost-effective option for your home!
Heat Pump vs. Furnace
If you’re currently heating your home with electric heat, a heat pump could be a cost-reducing way to keep your home warm. Heat pumps are around three times more efficient than an electric furnace, so you could save money and reduce your carbon output. If you’re worried about the coldest months, a dual-fuel option or the combination of a heat pump and a furnace could be best for your home or office.
Heat Pump vs. AC
Don’t be fooled by the name. A heat pump can keep your home or office cool, too! While a heat pump often presents a larger initial cost than an air conditioning unit, your utility bill savings could quickly make the investment well worth it.
The best heating and cooling system will depend on your specific home or business needs. As Omaha’s trusted HVAC contractors, we’ll work with you decide if heat pump installation is the most energy-efficient and cost-saving option for you!
Heat Pump Repair
If you’ve already invested in a heat pump, look out for these signs that could indicate your system is in need of repair:
- Icing. No matter the temperature outside, ice on your heat pump isn’t normal. We’ll identify if this is being caused by a refrigerant link, reduced air flow, or a clogged filter and resolve the issue before permanent damage is done.
- Loud noises. Heat pumps are incredibly quiet. If you start to hear loud noises, contact Controlled Comfort immediately.
- Stuck in a mode. If your heat pump can’t switch modes to heating or cooling, this could indicate a problem with your reversing valve.
- Rising utility bill. One signal of needing a repair is if your energy bill has been steadily increasing. We will identify the efficiency drain and have your energy bill back to normal in no time!
