What exactly is a heat pump?

A heat pump is a major appliance that both heats and cools your home’s environment.  It also circulates your home’s air to eliminate stuffiness and to refresh the atmosphere.  A heat pump is designed to be reversible, working in either thermal direction to provide heating or cooling of the same conditioned environment.  When heating, heat pumps move heat from the cool outdoors into your warm house.  When cooling, heat pumps move heat from your cool house into the warm outdoors.  Heat pumps move heat as opposed to generating heat, so they are known to be energy-efficient.

Does Gillece offer heat pumps?

Gillece Services offers, installs, and services 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.

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