Is a Heat Pump the right solution for you?

A/C Service Plans

If you’re considering Heat Pumps, there are a few things to keep in mind before investing in one.

First, having proper insulation and windows in your home is important to ensure that it retains heat during cold, windy winter evenings.

Second, unlike furnaces or boilers that blow warm air, Heat Pumps blow colder air. While it does heat your home, the air is below body temperature, which may feel chilly. If you’re accustomed to the warmth of your current heating system, you may not want to reconsider Heat Pumps as your primary or only heat source.

Third, Heat Pump parts can be challenging to find as technology is rapidly evolving. While it’s excellent news for cold weather performance, it also means that existing models can quickly become obsolete, and parts become hard to find. This issue is especially challenging for those who rely exclusively on Heat Pump systems and may require a few days without heat. It’s essential to plan accordingly and have backup heating options available.

Lastly, suppose Heat Pumps are the right fit for your home. In that case, it’s important to have them installed by a reputable company like Estes Oil & Propane, which can provide regular maintenance and repair services. Heat Pumps require ongoing upkeep, and it’s necessary to have a service provider who can ensure that your system is functioning efficiently.
