Heat Pumps - Ducted & Ductless

DUCTED HEAT PUMPS IN WATERLOO AND KITCHENER

Ductless Heat pumps are a brilliant choice for those who want a two-in-one climate control solution because they play both the part of the furnace and air conditioner. To learn more about heat pumps, or to get your heat pump in the Guelph and Kitchener/Waterloo area serviced, keep reading and contact us at Aire One Heating and Cooling.

WHAT ARE HEAT PUMPS?

A heat pump moves heat from the outdoors to indoor and vice versa, as per your requirements. The process helps in keeping your Waterloo and Kitchener homes warm throughout the cold. A well-maintained heat pump can last up to 15-20 years.

However, the climate and other external factors such as leaves, ice, snow or any type of debris can also impact its lifespan and performance.

Here are some things to consider before purchasing a Heat Pump:

  • Always call a professional to install your heat pump.
  • Look out for incentives and rebates on heat pumps.
  • It is suggested to evaluate its technology.
  • Consult with a professional regarding its speed motors and compressor.

HOW DO THEY WORK?

Put simply, they have both outdoor and indoor components, and they extract and move heat from one location to another. During winter, the heat pump pulls heat from the air and transfers it to your home. During the summer, it pulls heat from the inside and transfers it out. As cold as it can get during our Canadian winters, there is still heat energy outside.

In moderate climates, heat pumps are a great choice because they are typically cheaper than having a furnace and air conditioner. However, many professionals will tell you that consistent temperatures of -15 C will necessitate more heat than a heat pump can provide. Thankfully, heat pumps work very well in partnership with furnaces!

... Most KNOWLEDGEABLE FROM OUR POINT OF VIEW
We had Aire One install a new furnace and heat pump at our home. We discovered that not all contractors had the experience installing heat pumps. They are wonderful technology but not as commonly used. Aire One was the most knowledgeable from our point of view.
They communicated well as far as setting up a time. They worked hard to get us up and running and followed up with a small item that needed to be finished up afterwards. Thanks for a job well done!
