Heat Pump Installation | Pawtucket, Woonsocket & Providence, Rhode Island

Looking for an energy efficient replacement for your existing heating and cooling system? How about a unit that does both? A heat pump, especially when used as part of a dual fuel heating system, will save space in your home and can save you a considerable amount of money over time!

Heat Pump Installation

Dual fuel heat pump systems are perfect for the climate in Rhode Island. During the winter, they operate just like normal, energy efficient air conditioners. During the winter, heat pumps switch over to heating mode, pulling heat energy from the outside and moving it inside. Heat pumps operate extremely efficiently at a temperature range between 20 and 60° F. For times when it gets much colder than this, dual fuel heat pumps come with a secondary heat source, usually in the form of electric heat strips. These help the heat pump get back up to its optimal temperature again—even with the backup, your heat pump will still provide for as much as 60-70% of your home’s heating needs!

Why should you install a heat pump?

Heat pumps work all year long, functioning as both heaters and air conditioners. Since they don’t burn any fuel in the winter to create heat, they are much more energy efficient than gas or oil heating systems.

Do heat pumps work when it gets cold?

This is one of the most common questions people have when considering heat pump installation. Fortunately, the answer is yes! As we said above, heat pumps efficiently operate at a range between 20-60° F. Just because it doesn’t FEEL warm when you go outside doesn’t mean there isn’t heat present in the air. A heat pump can find that heat and use it to warm your home—even when it gets down to around 20° F!

Heat pump technology is improving every day! Many modern heat pumps include what are known as Reverse Cycle Chillers (RCCs), which eliminate the periodic blowing of cool air that most heat pumps go through during their defrost cycles. RCCs also allow heat pumps to operate at much lower temperatures—in fact, some RCCs can provide hot water at 115° F even when it’s 15° F outside!
