What is a Heat Pump?
A heat pump moves air from one space to another instead of using energy to generate heat or cool down warm air. You may use heat pumps during the winter or summer, and they work by transferring cool air into or out of the house, depending on the season.
How Much Do Heat Pumps Cost?
Heat pump prices vary considerably, but the heat pump installation cost can climb significantly higher if your home doesn’t have existing ductwork or if you opt for a geothermal or solar-powered heat pump. Call Conejo Valley Heating and Air Conditioning for a quote.
How Long Does it Take to Install a Heat Pump?
A typical heating pump installation takes between 4 and 8 hours to complete. However, the installation time can fluctuate depending on the weather, accessibility, and size of the existing system. Set aside an entire day if your heat pump installation includes new ductwork.
Can I Put a Cover Over My Outdoor Heat Pump?
You should never put a cover over your outdoor air source heat pump when it is in use, as that may result in massive damage.
How are Heat Pumps Efficiency Rated?
A heat pump’s efficiency is measured by their Coefficient of Performance (CoP), which details how efficiently the heat pump system can heat your home. We calculate the CoP of a heat pump by dividing the energy the system outputs by the amount of energy it consumes. A CoP of 4, for instance, means that a heat pump can produce four units of heat for every unit of electricity consumed.
