Heat pumps can increase your home’s energy efficiency, and help reduce heating and cooling expenses. They circulate hot air from one place to another. Depending on the season, this means moving hot air out of your home in the summer, and warm air into your home during the winter. Heat energy exists even in cool air, so these systems can operate year-round in many climates.
A heat pump is an attractive option because uses less electricity and fewer natural resources than a typical heating and cooling system. If you have heat pump questions, give us a call:
Heat Pump Benefits
- Low operating cost compared to combustion systems
- Reduces carbon emissions
- Less maintenance than traditional HVAC systems
- Evenly heats without large temperature fluctuations
- Minimal maintenance required
Types of Heat Pumps
There are three main types of heat pumps, each using a different energy source. We install and service all brands and models.
Also known as air-to-air, this type of heat pump extracts heat from outside your home. The air is cooled and then transferred it into your home. This is an easy to install and inexpensive option. This type of equipment may also be known as a ductless mini-split system.
Ground source heat pumps are also known as Geothermal Systems. These systems extract heat energy from the ground, and the alters the temperature before transferring it into your home. Geothermal heat pumps are very efficient and reliable, they do however have a higher installation cost.
Water Source Heat Pumps
Water source heat pumps use the same concepts as air source heat pumps, except the energy source is water. This type of equipment requires a nearby water source that can reliable supply water year-round. A secondary system may be required if that is not possible, or if your climate is too cold to reliably supply water.
Sustainable Heating and Cooling
Heat pumps are gaining popularity as energy costs rise. Because heat pumps consume fewer fossil fuel, and produce less emissions they are more sustainable and environmentally friendly.
In Kansas, air and ground source heat pumps are most common due to the extreme climate changes from season to season. Reddi offers free estimates for heat pump installations in the Wichita area.
