What are the benefits of heat pumps?
Energy efficient heat pumps are an excellent choice for homeowners in Colonial Heights and surrounding areas. Heat pumps work ideally in environments that are over 30 degrees Fahrenheit, so Virginia's mild climate is perfect for these devices.
In addition to helping you achieve lower electricity and gas bills, heat pumps prove more environmentally friendly than traditional heating systems since they do not release carbon dioxide. These units also keep the humidity level in your home at a comfortable level.

What are features of energy efficient units?
Energy efficiency is one of the most important aspects to consider when purchasing a quality heat pump. An energy efficient heat pump needs to be the right size for your home. This means a home that is 950 square feet requires a specific type of heat pump than one that is over 2,500 square feet. You do not want your heat pump to overwork or lack in power.
As a general rule, ground source heat pumps are more efficient than air source heat pumps. Consider a ground source pump if you are trying to keep your energy costs as low as possible.
Contact us before installing a new heat pump and we will help you choose the ideal unit to fit your home’s needs.
What are common problems?
"My heat pump is so noisy!" is a common problem voiced by our customers. A late model heat pump that is working efficiently should not make loud, unusual sounds. Loose bolts or screws can lead to noisy operation.
Another common problem is a heat pump that has either too high or too low pressure. In most cases, problems with pressure are the result of a faulty compressor or evaporator.
