Heat Pump

Heat Pumps Tank

In heat pumps, heat is transferred between two places. As mentioned above, there are three essential components to a heat pump: the outdoor unit (condenser), the indoor unit (evaporator) and the refrigerant. The refrigerant transfers heat between the outdoor and indoor units as it circulates.

  • An evaporator converts the liquid into gas by forcing it to vaporize (air or solar energy).
  • The compressor raises the temperature of the gas by compressing it.
  • As the gas exits the condenser, the heat is exchanged with the heating system, and the gas returns to its liquid state.
  • Expansion valves lower the pressure of refrigerants, resulting in evaporation and thus creating a new cycle.

Cooling your home simply involves reversing this cycle. 

Heat pumps, including refrigerators, operate in one direction. Hot air is expelled out of a refrigerator after passing across its compressor coils. The air source heat pump is a relatively energy-efficient method of heating, since it uses heat already present in the air outside (yes, the winter air is heated). 

In the summer, air conditioners and heat pumps reverse directions. In other words, you can send heat from your house to the outside, keeping you cool. Because they are more efficient than air conditioners, they are more cost-effective. Many Canadians make the switch because of it.

Heat Pumps Installation

Many of the benefits of installing a heat pump will become apparent to you immediately after installation. 

1. Lower costs and increased efficiency
Heat pumps are more efficient than standard heating systems. A heat pump will produce 3.3 kWh of heat per kilowatt hour (kWh) of electricity consumed at 10°C. It is true that the temperature of heat pumps fluctuates, but they are a better option for people who want to minimize their environmental impact.

A heat pump is also an excellent choice if you want to save money, and let’s face it, who wouldn’t? A heat pump will come in handy if you want to reduce your electric costs. 

Gas furnaces are often used to heat homes. By reducing how much you use it (since it works regardless of temperature), you will see savings on your heating bills. 

In addition to heating your home, modern air source heat pumps can also heat your water. You could potentially save up to 50% on your water heating bills.

2. Heat and cooling are interconnected
heat pumps are often used as air conditioners! During the summer months, the process reverses, with warm air being emitted from your house. In addition to cooling you down, this will dehumidify your home. Heat pumps thus replace air conditioners more efficiently.

3. Low Maintenance Makes Your Life Easier
Choosing a heat pump as your home heating and cooling system is a no-hassle, no-muss solution. A heat pump is one of the most convenient systems available. When you use our maintenance plans, there’s even less work for you to do.

4. Combustion doesn’t occur so they’re more safe
Every year, furnaces should be inspected for carbon monoxide leaks. A leak from this invisible killer could pose a serious threat to you and your family. Electric heat pumps do not burn fuel in your home, so they’re a safe heating option.

5. They are durable
The average life expectancy of a heat pump is 15 years. It has a great lifespan. Keep in mind, though, that the better care you give your home’s heating and cooling systems, the longer they will last. 

Now is the time to start saving. You can start pumping out huge savings and bringing in warm air at the same time. Contact HeatCo for your free estimate.

Our Customer Stories

Theo is an absolute pro and just a kind human being. He came this morning to assess my lack of heating and gave me a quick diagnosis of the problem and possible solutions for repairing or upgrading - he had a no pressure attitude. When we decided to just repair our boiler, he was even able to come the same day late in the evening to help us get heat back! Highly rated individual - you can definitely count on him as he really cares about his business and clients.

The Technican Sia and Owner Theo are great guys. Professional ,prompt and friendly. I replaced my hot water tank and boiler with Hi efficiency tankless units. The team worked quickly and limited our time without heat or hot water. The system is great and they even helped me to apply for BC HYDRO rebates. I highly recommend this company.
Tony Llewellyn
Awesome contractor. A diamond in the rough. I called him because my furnace was blowing cold air (and it's freezing today!). He's in high demand, so he was understandably unable to book me for a service call for two weeks. He took the time to diagnose my furnace's problem over the phone, then suggested a fix. It worked. It didn't cost me a dime. It cost him some of his valuable time, but he was generous enough to share it with me. Thank you so much. Please support this awesome business!
