Heat Pumps

Here in Texas, heat pumps are perfectly suited for both heating and cooling your home. With everything these efficient systems have to offer, our KCA Services Comfort Specialists are repairing, installing, and maintaining more heat pumps than ever.

Our professionals continually work hard to remain in front of the newest technology and techniques around these flexible systems. Our goal is to deliver outstanding customer service while providing you with a high level of comfort in your Texas home.

How Heat Pumps Are Different

In purpose, heat pumps are similar to furnaces and air conditioners in that they heat and cool your home. In design, however, heat pumps are very different from furnaces, though the same as air conditioners.

To heat your home, furnaces create their own heat by burning gas, oil, or electricity. By contrast, heat pumps don’t create heat. They extract and then transfer it from one locale to another via coils—from outdoors to indoors—taking it from either the air, water, or ground, depending on what source-type pump you have. The majority of heat pumps we repair, install, and maintain are air-source heat pumps.

To cool your home, air conditioners and heat pumps actually work in the same manner. They both remove the heat from your inside air and transfer it outdoors, leaving behind the cool air for your home.

Heat pumps also differ from both furnaces and air conditioners in that furnaces and air conditioners each only have one function apiece. On the other hand, heat pumps are versatile and can both heat and cool, or simply cool.

If you lived in a northern region of the U.S., instead of here in Texas, you would need to supplement your heat pump’s heating capabilities with a furnace for times when temperatures drop below freezing.

Heat Pump Benefits

The most significant benefit of a heat pump is its energy efficiency. Since it does not burn fuel, but instead transfers heat, your energy consumption is very low—and so are your home’s energy bills. The heat pump actually creates up to three times more energy than it expends.

Another benefit is how environmentally friendly it is, barely leaving a carbon footprint. Yet another benefit is how cost-effective the pump is. By both not using fossil fuel and combining its heating and cooling elements into one unit, it saves on installation costs.
