A versatile, cost-effective alternative to air conditioners
Heating, cooling and dehumidifying, heat pumps have it all. Heat pumps look and function the same as air conditioners for cooling, but in cool months when heat is needed, they reverse operation to provide warmth for your home.
An efficient heat pump can do this so effectively some homeowners in warmer climates rely exclusively on these units for year-round comfort. Here in Wisconsin, we install electric-powered heat pumps to work in combination with your gas-fueled furnace as a Hybrid Heat® solution, which can result in significant savings on your overall heating costs.
At Tom’s Heating, we offer many different kinds of heat pump configurations from Carrier. The most common is what’s called a split system. This simply means that your solution will have components that reside both inside the home and outside. The heat pump itself sits in your yard like a central air conditioner unit. Inside your home an evaporator coil to convert refrigerant and a blower motor to move the treated air is needed. Often this is a combination of your furnace attached to an evaporator coil, but sometimes, only a fan coil is used for both functions.
Ask your Tom’s Heating pro if a heat pump is right for your heating and cooling system.
