Heat Pumps

Glenn Aire Co is experienced in the service, repair, and installation of heat pumps in Granbury, TX, and its surrounding area. A heat pump is a device that transfers heat from one place to another, from indoors to outdoors or from outdoors to indoors. For homes with no access to natural gas, heat pumps offer an efficient and reliable solution for heating and cooling.

How Do Heat Pumps Work?

In the winter, a heat pump works like a heater, extracting heat energy from outside and transferring it inside. In the summer, the process reverses, and it will remove heat from your home and transfer it outside like an air conditioner. Heat pumps do this so well that many people in warmer climates exclusively rely on a heat pump for year-round comfort. For those living in colder climates, they use electric-powered heat pumps in conjunction with their gas or oil furnace resulting in lower heating costs.

Heat pumps work with a series of coils drawing energy from air, water, or the ground. In this way, they are very environmentally friendly and are the most energy-efficient way to heat and cool your home. Heat pumps also work extremely efficiently, because they simply transfer heat, rather than burn fuel to create it. This makes them a greener alternative to traditional gas or oil furnaces. Though you may think you’re unfamiliar with them, they traditionally heat swimming pools and hot tubs, so you most likely have come in contact with them and not even known it.

Different Types of Heat Pumps

There are three types of heat pumps: air-to-air, water source, and geothermal. As mentioned above, they collect their heat from the air, water, and outside-your-home ground and concentrate it for use. Call Glenn Aire Co to discuss the basic differences between these types and which one would work best for you and your home.

Are Heat Pumps Expensive?

Installation costs of heat pumps are higher than with a traditional furnace or air conditioner, but the savings over time in annual energy costs make up for the difference in five to ten years. Performing proper operation and maintenance of your heat pump will also save you money, as you’ll use less energy, thus resulting in less cost. Be sure to ask your HVAC professional for the proper thermostat setting and the indoor pump’s fan operation. Not following the recommended guidelines can inhibit the maximized running of the pump and can degrade the unit itself. Regular maintenance can prevent degradation as well. Consistent filter changing or cleaning is necessary for a well-running heat pump. Seasonal cleaning of coils and fans go a long way in preventing poor energy efficiency that can end up costing you more money. The energy difference between a well-maintained system and a neglected one can be anywhere from 10 to 25 percent.

“Heat Pump went out Tuesday 8/8. Outside temp. 108. My wife and I are 80 and do not take heat well. We called 4 companies and got competitive bids. Luke Jones came out with Glenn Aire, he was well organized, knowledgeable, and professional. He gave us the best price on a high end system. He then beat giving the best price, by having our complete old system removed and hauled off, and the new system completely installed and running by 12 noon on 8/9. Thanks Luke, Installation Team, and Glenn Aire. You are the very best.”

“Fan stopped working. Called Glenn Aire at 8:10. Technician showed up at 8:50 and quickly identified the issue as a bad thermostat. Replaced the thermostat, set it up and everything works great! We have had a service contract for the past 2 years. The service charge was waived and we got a discount on the thermostat! I would recommend Glenn Aire for your heating and cooling service needs!”
