New Construction

Building a new home? Take this golden opportunity to design and install an energy efficient heating and cooling system. As your HVAC specialist, we can customize a heating and cooling solution that best fits your space and lifestyle, providing endless comfort for your family. Choosing an electric heat pump over an HVAC system run on oil or gas is not only better for the environment, but for your wallet as well.

The Advantages of Electric Heat Pump Heating Systems

Almost all electric heat pumps are considerably more energy efficient than even the best-performing gas furnaces.

Installing an electric heat pump system in your home is usually cost significantly less than the installation of a gas furnace. If your home isn’t ready to have a gas furnace installed, you will also need to pay for the extensive ventilation system that’s a must for use with a gas furnace.

In virtually all areas, the price of electricity is lower than the price of natural gas. As such, you should expect to spend a lot less money heating your home with an electric pump system as opposed to a gas furnace.

Electric heat pumps are a lot quieter than gas furnaces, which is good news if you’re a light sleeper.

There’s absolutely no risk of gas leaks or carbon monoxide poisoning when you have an electric heat pump installed, as such, it’s fair to say that they’re safe than conventional gas furnaces.

Electric pump systems come with a range of features such as a timers and sleep functions. These features, while they might not seem like much, can give people more control of when they heat their homes. Traditional heating systems can lack these features, meaning you waste money by overheating your home.

The Phasing Out of Fossil Fuel Systems

It’s a fact of life that one day, fossil fuels will run out. We’re rapidly depleting our natural gas resources at a hitherto unprecedented rate. The switch to electric will not only be better for the environment, but for our bank balances as well.

While this may seem unlikely, across the pond in the UK, there are plans to make all new homes built after 2025 gas-free, and instead powered solely by sustainable means. All gas-fired power stations are set to shut down by the mid-2030s – unless they’re able to eliminate CO2 from their emissions.

It seems only logical that we should expect the United States to follow suit. Local governments who that are looking to tackle climate change head-on are already doing their utmost to make a difference. Recently, Berkeley, California, became the first city in the United States to ban the installation of natural gas setups in newly built homes.

Mini-Spit Systems

Greater flexibility & efficiency

Choosing a mini-split system for your home offers you greater degrees of flexibility in heating, lower bills as you’ll be using a more efficient form of heating, and the ability to expand your heating in a stress-free manner, should you ever extend your house or building.

Powered solely by electricity

Ductless heating systems usually require fuels such as propane or kerosene to operate, but with a mini-split system, they can be powered solely by electricity.

Less problems

Expanding duct work can be extremely problematic and leave you with big bills for the work. However, installing a mini-split system makes the process extremely simple. Your compressor will be situated on the outside of your home and your air-handling unit is located inside.

ROI

It’s important to consider that electric air pumps are an attractive option for home buyers these days, due to the lower running costs, reliability, and low emissions. When the time comes to sell your home, having an electric heat pump system installed could be the difference between a quick sale or a long, drawn out process.
