For Home Heating and Cooling, Install a Heat Pump

Imagine having one piece of equipment that can both heat and cool your home. It’s possible with a heat pump from Harris Comfort! What makes a heat pump so versatile? We’ll be happy to tell you!

What is a heat pump?

A heat pump is a ductless heating and cooling system that offers a smaller footprint (meaning it won’t take up as much space in your home as ducted units) and higher energy efficiency so that it uses less energy and lowers annual utility costs.

How does it work?

While an air conditioning system generates cool air and a furnace or boiler generates warm air, a heat pump works by moving warm air from one location to another. Warm air generated by the sun on a winter day can be pulled inside to raise temperatures, while warm air from the summer heat can be pulled outside to lower them.

When do I need one?

In many cases heat pumps are used to supplement existing heating and cooling equipment. Maybe you’re experiencing uneven temperatures, or cold and warm spots throughout your home. A heat pump can help balance it out.

Additionally, heat pumps can function as a household’s sole source of comfort. Because they don’t take up too much space and are energy efficient, smaller, budget-savvy homes might find using heat pumps to be the best solution to their comfort needs.
