Heat Pumps

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What is a heat pump?

A: A heat pump is a heating and cooling system that extracts heat from the air, water, or ground and transfers it inside or outside, depending on the season.

Q: How does a heat pump work?

A: The heat pump works by using refrigerant to absorb heat from a source (air, water, or ground), compressing it to increase its temperature, and transferring it to the indoor space using a fan or blower. In the summer, the process is reversed and the heat pump extracts heat from indoor air and expels it outdoors.

Q: What are the advantages of a heat pump?

A: Heat pumps are energy efficient, environmentally friendly, versatile, and provide both heating and cooling capabilities in one system. They can also be used for hot water heating.

 Q: How energy efficient are heat pumps?

A: Heat pumps are highly energy efficient, as they don't generate heat but rather transfer it, which requires less energy than creating heat. The efficiency of a heat pump is measured by its SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) and HSPF (Heating Seasonal Performance Factor) ratings.

Q: Are there different types of heat pumps?

A: Yes, there are air-source, water-source, and ground-source heat pumps, each with unique advantages and installation requirements.

Q: How long do heat pumps last?

A: A well-maintained heat pump can last up to 15-18 years, although proper maintenance and regular servicing can extend its lifespan.

Q: Do heat pumps require regular maintenance?

A: Yes, like any HVAC system, heat pumps require regular maintenance to operate at peak efficiency and prolong their lifespan. This includes changing filters, cleaning coils, and checking refrigerant levels.

Q: Can a heat pump be used in cold climates?

A: Yes, modern heat pumps are designed to operate efficiently in cold climates and can provide effective heating even in sub-zero temperatures. However, the size and type of heat pump needed may vary depending on the climate and the size of the property.

Q: How much does a heat pump cost?

A: The cost of a heat pump depends on the type, size, and features of the unit, as well as installation and labor costs. It's important to get a professional assessment and quote before investing in a heat pump.

    "Very Responsible"
    Have worked with Logan and he is very professional and responsive! He does a great job explaining everything and taking responsibility for his job. Recommend him for sure:)

    "Best Customer Service Ever"
    I ended up calling True Heating & Cooling, for an emergency furnace repair on my rental house, after the first company I called didn’t show. Hands down the best customer service I’ve received in years. After getting off the phone with the office, I was called by Logan almost immediately. He was at the house within 40 mins. He did the repair, the cost of which was very reasonable, and he also told me our gas pressure was high. Nice to know there is at least one business that goes above and beyond.

    Brian has helped us out last year and again this year with different HVAC problems. He is there when he is supposed to be and takes care of our needs in a very professional manner. He has earned my trust and is my go-to guy for any HVAC problems. I have spent 40 years in large commercial HVAC and know when I have the right guy.

    Brian Sawyer from True heating and cooling was a true pro - he was able to diagnose the issue with my HVAC system (it was the thermostat) fairly quickly and gave me tips and suggestions to look after my unit. Would definitely be calling this business for all my heating and cooling needs!

    "Highly Recommend"
    Had a hot water heater go out in the ceiling at my business. Logan and Troy were on time and really know what they were doing. They did an excellent job. I think we will use them for a job that we need to do at our home as well. Highly recommended.
