What is a heat pump?

Don’t let the name mislead you! Heat pumps are great for heating and cooling your home. They’re an extremely efficient way to control your home’s temperature. When it’s hot out, they remove heat from your home, but when it cools off, the process gets reversed, and it collects heat from outside and brings it inside.

What size equipment should I purchase?

The best way to determine the size system your home needs is by having one of our technicians come by! We’ll perform a load calculation that includes your square footage, insulation value, amount of insulation, and many other factors to determine the best system for your home.

How do I reduce my energy bills?

We’ll help you pick Energy Star® appliances, air conditioners with high SEER ratings, and furnaces with high AFUE ratings to make sure your system is as efficient as possible. You can also consider:

  • Receiving regular maintenance by our technicians, so your system remains energy-efficient, giving you the most for your money
