Huft Home Services has years of experience with heat pump installation in Galt and the surrounding area. Heat pumps are beloved by homeowners for their versatility, performance, and efficiency. Essentially, a heat pump transfers heat to a warm space from a cool space, so the warm space feels warmer or the cool space feels cooler. When used during the cold months, the heat pump pumps heat from the colder outdoor area into your warm house. During the hot months, the heat pump pumps heat from inside the home to the home’s exterior. Since heat pumps transfer heat instead of generating it, they do an excellent job of keeping your home at the desired temperature.
Heat pumps come in several types, including:
Ducted, air-sourced models
Absorption heat pumps
Air-sourced heat pumps are the most commonly installed versions of this popular heating system. This type of heat pump works by transferring heat between the inside and outside of the home, effectively reducing electricity expended for heating by up to 50 percent when compared with baseboard heaters or traditional furnaces. As a bonus, they also dehumidify the air, which can result in a reduction in energy spending during the summer. Air-sourced heat pumps are available in mini-split format too—which is useful for homes without ducts.
Heat pump installation of geothermal heat pumps is becoming more mainstream. This type of heat pump works by transferring heat between the ground (or a local water source) and your home. This type of heat pump effectively uses up to 60 percent less energy than other heating and cooling sources.
Absorption heat pumps are less common than the other types. This type of heat pump relies on an absorption heat pump that pulls thermal energy or heat from a source such as natural gas.
