Heat Pumps

Provides Heating and Cooling Effects in One System

As a heat-moving alternative to a furnace, a heat pump can be extremely efficient in its use of energy.

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, “…heat pumps offer an energy-efficient alternative to furnaces (and air conditioners).  Like a refrigerator, heat pumps use electricity to move heat from a cool space into a warm, making the cool space cooler and the warm space warmer. During the heating season, heat pumps move heat from the cool outdoors into your warm house; during the cooling season, heat pumps move heat from your cool house into the warm outdoors. Because they move heat rather than generate heat, heat pumps can provide up to 4 times the amount of energy they consume.”

Energy-Efficiency Leads to Potential Savings

By choosing a heat pump for your home’s heating (and cooling) needs, you can enhance the comfort of your home while saving energy and money.  Heat pumps move heat as opposed to generating heat, so they are known to be energy-efficient.  Saving energy (power) can mean saving money.  Saving energy helps to save money on utility bills and also protects the environment by reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

Heat pumps can generally be more affordable to run, save energy, support the environment and can also help in other ways.  They circulate a home’s air, so indoor air is less stuffy and not as humid.  They are designed to work for all seasons, creating endless comfort.  They are extremely convenient, easy to work with, and are a good investment.

Top-Quality Heat Pumps and Installation

Gillece Services offer top-quality, ENERGY STAR® heat pumps with expert installation by Gillece HVAC Heating and Cooling Technicians.  We offer, install, and service heat pumps that you can depend on.

Heat pumps offered by Gillece Services center around two ratings- efficiency and comfort.  Efficiency is a factor of how much power it takes for a heat pump appliance to do a useful amount of work.  Heat pumps are measured in SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio).  The higher the SEER rating- say 18- the higher the efficiency.  According to the manufacturer of heat pumps that Gillece offers, “comfort rating” is a combined measure of motor or compressor performance, sound, and controllability.  For example, if a heat pump has a more precise and a more quiet operation, it would therefore get a higher comfort rating.  Our heat pumps are built to provide high efficiency, comfort, and performance.

Heat Pump Expert Repair and Maintenance

Just like any major household appliance, heat pump systems also require maintenance, repair, and sometimes replacement.  Filters should be changed regularly.  Fans and coils should be kept clean, and a Gillece HVAC Heating and Cooling Technician should inspect and safety- check your heat pump about once a year.

Don’t hesitate to call Gillece day or night- anytime- to restore your heat pump to efficient working order for you and your loved ones.
