While the service technician is at your home, they can provide choices for your new heat pump installation. Logan Services offers multiple air-source heat pumps (ASHP), including ductless heat pumps. These come in a range of seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER) ratings, which measure cooling efficiency. 

The service technician will measure your home, add up the number of doors and windows, and consider the wall and attic insulation levels to calculate the proper size heat pump and appropriate SEER rating. 

They will then provide an estimate, which includes the heat pump cost and any installation expenses. Generally, estimates are not itemized. Instead, the costs are compiled into one final amount. It’s important to know that heat pump prices are on the rise. The service technician will provide various financing options during the estimate, which allow you to make monthly payments.

Benchmarks include communication between the installation team and the technician, continuous customer communication, and start-up and check-tests to ensure your new system will deliver maximum efficiency and comfort.  

What Is A Heat Pump?

There are numerous types of HVAC systems on the market today. In Ohio, an air-source heat pump is mainly installed in homes. Let’s look at other systems before discussing the mechanics of an air-source heat pump:

1. Geothermal Heat Pump

Also known as a ground source heat pump, geothermal heat pumps pull heat from a looped system installed in the ground. Water travels through the loop and absorbs the heat, bringing it back into the home. Although geothermal heat pumps are very efficient, the installation costs are about three times the cost of an air-source system. Additionally, these systems are not always suitable for urban or suburban environments. 

2. Water Source Heat Pump

A water source heat pump is a hydronic heating source, otherwise known as radiant heat. Although radiant heat is very comfortable, these applications are more fitting for rural locations. The system uses a boiler or water heater heat. Rather than refrigerant, water is utilized to absorb heat, which is sent to an indoor coil. The air blows across the coil through the duct system and heats the home.

3. Solar Heat Pumps 

In some settings, solar panels can connect to heat pumps manufactured specifically for solar applications. The solar panel absorbs light from the sun and transfers the energy to the system through electrical wiring. 

4. Ductless Heat PumpsMitsubishi Ductless Mini-Split

A mini split heat pump is a top solution for heating and cooling individual rooms. Ductless systems require separate cooling heads and compressors for each room but can quickly and efficiently condition zones or smaller spaces within the home. 

In the summer, heat pumps operate exactly like a central air conditioner. The system runs the indoor air over the indoor evaporator coil to remove heat and humidity. That heat is transferred outside. If you’ve ever felt heat coming off an air conditioner in the summer, you’re feeling the heat that was expelled from the building being cooled. The better the system is at removing humidity, the cooler your home will feel. 

The heat pump will also warm your home during the heating season. When the thermostat is set to heating mode, the reversing valve will switch the direction in which the refrigerant flows. This causes the unit to absorb heat from outdoor air and deliver it to the indoor air handler (electric furnace) through refrigeration. The air flows over a hot indoor coil powered by electricity, then through the ductwork to heat your home.  

Heat Pump Benefits

On days when it’s 34 degrees Fahrenheit or warmer, high-efficiency units can be a very effective way to heat your home. Here in Ohio, there are many milder fall/winter days. 

However, on colder days (34 degrees and below), a typical heat pump simply can’t produce enough warm air. Heat moves to cold – it’s a law of science. The colder it is outside, the more heat wants to escape. That makes the system work in overdrive. 

Eventually, the heat pump won’t be able to keep up. When this occurs, backup heat is needed. The heat strips within the heat banks will be utilized to help maintain the set thermostat temperature. As a rule of thumb, know that a gas furnace or air handler is more effective for supplying heat to your home on extremely cold days.

How Do Heat Pumps Work During Really Cold Weather?Trane Heat Pump

In Ohio, a furnace heating system or electric furnace (otherwise referred to as an air handler) can often pair with a heat pump. When a heat pump is paired with a gas furnace, they are what the HVAC industry calls a dual fuel or hybrid system. The heat pump cools the home. When temperatures drop, it switches to heating mode to warm the indoor air until the efficiency level lowers. The existing furnace or air handler will kick on as a backup heat source to maintain energy efficiency and home comfort.
