Furnaces and heat pumps operate in two different ways. Furnaces work by using fuel to heat up air which is then usually pushed away from the heating unit and into a system of ducts. The types of fuel that are most commonly used to achieve the heating effect are natural gas and electricity. Heat pumps, on the other hand, rely on the same process our refrigerators use, but carried out in reverse. While refrigerators take the coldness out of the surrounding, hotter air and transfer it inside the fridge to keep it cold, a heat pump does the exact opposite – it uses the colder outside air to draw heat from it, and then transfer it inside. Heat pumps achieve this by use of a refrigerant and electricity.
Out technicians are well aware of how furnaces and heat pumps work, so they also know that in some cases, it might be better to choose one over the other – like if electricity is cheap enough to make heat pump less expensive than a furnace. But whichever of the two you want to install in your home, you can rest assured that our technicians will know how to install it properly.

Furnaces and heat pumps also need to be maintained regularly. Things like low refrigerant levels in heat pumps or bent air fans in furnaces can severely decrease the efficiency of the whole heating system. Because gas furnaces use combustion to heat up air, they also pose a risk from carbon monoxide poisoning if they’re not vented properly and push carbon monoxide into the ductwork along with hot air. But you needn’t worry about that, as you can trust our technicians to make your gas furnace safe as houses.
