Is It Time to Switch?

Let’s talk about your home’s current heater and air conditioner. Are you wondering if you should switch? It’s not always a clear-cut decision, so we’d like to give you a few guidelines. You’re probably eligible to switch over to a new heat pump if…

  • You’re not getting quality service from your heater
  • You’re not getting quality service from your air conditioner
  • You’re paying way too much for your home’s heating and cooling services
  • You’ve had your heating or cooling systems for 10 years or more
  • You hear loud noises when either system runs
  • You’re repairing your air conditioner or heater constantly
  • You run your air conditioner or heater harder (you’re hovering over your thermostat and/or running either system for longer periods of time)

These are all signs that your current heater and air conditioner could stand to go. One of these signs is bad on its own, but if you’re at the point where you can relate to several of these bullet points, we’d suggest upgrading in the near future.

The Benefits of a Heat Pump

When you’re thinking about upgrading, we’re sure that you open up your mind to the varying systems available on the market. Are you wondering why you should choose a heat pump?

Year Round Service

One of the beset things about heat pump is that they can heat and cool your home from one system. This means you can replace both your heating and cooling system with this one unit. The best part about this is that all the benefits of a heat pump help you throughout the entire year.

Eco-Friendly Capability

The well-known feature of a heat pump is that it heats and cools differently than standard systems. It moves heat where you want it—in during the winter months and out during the cooler months. This means that it’s working in a more eco-friendly manner. The result is better efficiency and a reduced impact on the earth. Opting for a heat pump means you’re going green.


Heat pumps are efficient because of the aspect we touched on above: they move heat. You’re going to notice lowered energy bills and better comfort at home.
