Heat Pump Installation and Repair in the Katy/Fort Worth Region

When your energy costs for heating and air conditioning are soaring like the national debt, a heat pump will offer an energy-efficient alternative for homeowners as well as businesses in the Katy/Fort Worth region.

During the winter, heat pumps use electricity to move heat from the cool outdoors into your warm home and during the summer months, heat pumps move heat from your cool house into the warm outdoors. Because they move heat rather than generate it, heat pumps can generate up to four times the amount of energy they consume making them a wise choice for many homeowners.

The heat pump also provides a cleaner choice for persons with respiratory problems such as allergies. Coupled with a HEPA filter or other cutting edge technology air purifying systems, the heat pump becomes an ideal option in HVAC systems for persons with respiratory problems.

Relatively new innovations are improving the performance of heat pumps even more and reducing energy costs as a direct result.Prior standard compressors could only operate at full capacity. Recent upgrades include two-speed compressors that allow heat pumps to operate close to the heating or cooling capacity that is required at any given time. This feature saves tremendously on the electrical energy usage, and works well with zone control systems.

Some heat pump models are equipped with variable speed motors on indoor, or outdoor fans, or both. This maximizes savings on the electric bill and reduces noise when the fan operates at lower speeds.

An additional energy saving feature on some heat pumps is a desuperheater, which allows waste heat from the heat pumps cooling mode to heat water. A heat pump equipped with a desuperheater heats water 2 to 3 times more efficiently than an ordinary electric water heater.

The scroll compressor is another feature that has added benefits. When compared with piston compressors, scroll compressors have a longer service life and operate quieter.

Other advances in heat pump technology include dual fuel heat pumps used in the colder Northern areas of the country increasing versatility and allowing you a choice.

Energy Star requirements create consistent energy saving innovations to products. It pays to ask questions when having a heat pump or any other appliance installed. If your aging system is 10-14 years old, it may pay to consider the installation of a newer significantly more energy efficient HVAC system.
