All the Reasons to Consider a Heat Pump This Summer

If you are in the market for a new cooling system this summer, then you’ve come to the right spot. See, our team offers a variety of air conditioning systems designed to keep you and your family cool and comfortable all summer long!

In this week’s blog, though, we are going to be talking about heat pumps and all the reasons you should consider installing one! In fact, all you’ve got to do is keep reading to find out more, and of course, remember to call us for your air conditioning services in Orlando, FL.

The Basics

A heat pump works much like a traditional air conditioner, relying on the flow of refrigerant to transfer heat from one place to another. But what makes the difference between a standard AC and a heat pump is the reversing valve, which is used to reverse the direction the refrigerant flows through the system.


Well, you see, reversing the flow of refrigerant through the system allows for home heating in addition to cooling. That’s right: with just one system, you can both heat and cool your home!

The Benefits

So, why should you have one installed? Here’s why:

  • Better Efficiency: Heat pumps are one of the most energy-efficient HVAC systems on the market today. This is because they do not generate their own heat, but rather move it from one place to another. Switching to a heat pump is a great way to conserve energy and cut back on monthly spending.
  • Versatility: With just the flip of a switch, you’ll be able to enjoy year-round comfort! The reversing valve allows you to switch between “heating mode” and “cooling mode”, so no matter the temperature outside, you’ll be nice and comfortable inside!
  • Cost and Convenience: When you invest in a heat pump, you will no longer have to worry about the cost of maintaining two different HVAC systems, as a heat pump eliminates the need to own both an air conditioner and a heater. Plus, heat pumps come in both ducted and ductless models, so no matter how much space you have, there’s a heat pump out there for you!

Want One?

If you are interested in installing a heat pump in your home, do not hesitate to call in a certified HVAC professional for help!  Only a professional has the training and expertise to match you with the system that is going to best meet your unique comfort needs.
