HEAT PUMPS FOR HEATING & COOLING
Heat pumps are an increasingly popular option for Colorado homeowners to both heat AND cool their home. Heat pumps are units that handle the entire job of temperature control. They are designed to provide cool air in the summer and warm air in the winter.

IS A HEAT PUMP SYSTEM RIGHT FOR YOUR HOME?
Finding the right heat pump to adequately provide comfort to your home and family requires expert advice.

Heat pumps are not the right option for everyone. Depending on the temperature your specific area can expect to get in the winter, a heat pump may not be sufficient to fully heat your home.
HOW DO HEAT PUMPS WORK?
Heat pumps provide the necessary heating and cooling in a manner much different than typical HVAC units. With most common systems, such as furnaces and air conditioners, water is heated or cooled using gas or electricity. The treated air is then circulated through the ducts to your vents.
Heat pump systems operate much differently, especially compared to traditional heaters. Heat pumps work by drawing energy from the air outside your house. It uses this energy to heat the air inside your home during the winter. In the summer, a heat pump uses a heat exchanger to draw the heat out of your home to keep you cool. This is actually not all that different than how air conditioners operate.
Just as you have regular maintenance tasks to perform on a traditional heating and cooling system, heat pumps require a level of care to ensure it works properly and efficiently. Heat pump systems are working all year round, after all. You can expect to perform such maintenance work as changing the air filter and having check-ups and cleaning, when necessary, of the equipment and duct work.
