Heat pumps are a great way to implement energy efficiency in your Virginia, home. They take the place of furnaces and air conditioners by providing both heat and cool air whenever needed.

Our heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) experts possess high levels of experience and knowledge to install, replace, repair, and maintain your home’s heat pump. If you are considering a heat pump new installation or replacement, or if you are looking for repairs or maintenance, you will not find more qualified and reliable professionals than you will at Howell’s Heating & Air here in Richmond, VA, and its surrounding areas.

No matter what type of residential heat pump you are contemplating or have, our experts live up to our reputation.

How Are Heat Pump Systems Different?

Electric heat pumps offer an energy-efficient alternative to furnaces and air conditioners. They work differently than more traditional heating and cooling systems.

Heat pumps take heat from the outdoors and transfer it into your home when our Virginia, outdoor temperatures dip. Then during the warmer season, they move the heat from inside your home outdoors.

Because they transfer heat from one location to another instead of creating heat, heat pumps are very energy efficient, costing you much less in energy than conventional HVAC systems that burn fossil fuels to generate heat.

Heat Pump Benefits

Energy efficiency, which saves you money year-round, is just one of the multiple benefits a heat pump offers. If you don’t have a heat pump in your Richmond, VA, home, now may be the time. Our heat pump installation experts will take care of the service for you as well as give you the advice needed to reduce your energy consumption and lower your home’s energy bills.

Another benefit is the positive impact a heat pump can have on your home’s indoor air quality (IAQ). Since a heat pump is simply transferring heat instead of creating it with fossil fuels, it does not contribute to poor indoor air quality.

At Howell’s Heating & Air, our home comfort specialists only work with the industry’s leading systems and materials, so you can rest assured your heat pump will keep you comfortable for years.
