In many homes a heat pump is working all year long playing the role of both air conditioner and heat source. Since a heat pump is expected to function almost all the time, it is inevitable that replacement will eventually be necessary.
Cloud 9 Home Comfort is your number one choice in the Cambridge, Kitchener, Waterloo, Guelph and Brantford area for heat pump repairs, maintenance and installation.
A heat pump is comprised of two components - indoor and outdoor. The indoor part, or air handler, looks similar to a gas furnace. The outdoor portion resembles a central air conditioning system. A heat pump improves the quality of air in your home by pumping heat inside during cold months and out when it is warmer. Since heat pumpsuse electricity instead of a heat source or hot surface they are quite safe. Heat pumpsare also cost effective since electricity is more efficient to run than electric or oil furnaces.
When purchasing a heat pump be sure to choose one that complements the exterior of your home as well as the style of your current furnace or air conditioning unit.
