Understanding How Heat Pumps Work
When you have a standard gas or electric furnace, heat is produced and distributed through your home from that centralized unit. Heat pumps are different. They absorb heat from the outside and transfer it into your home as part of a continual process. These units are unique in that they can also be reversed in the summer to remove heat from your home, supporting or even replacing your AC. There are many types of heat pumps, including air-to-air, geothermal, and water source models.
Heat Pump Benefits
Heat pumps are ideal for homes that have less severe heating and cooling requirements, including newly designed homes meant to optimize energy use. Due to this innovation, heat pumps offer a number of distinct advantages. The most important of all of these is efficiency. Since they simply move heat rather than produce it, heat pumps can often deliver comparable cooling and heating for around 1/5th of the cost of a central HVAC. This can add up to a 50% reduction in energy costs, which is hard to ignore in a place like Southwest Texas. Another benefit over traditional HVAC units is how efficient heat pumps are at reducing humidity through the summer. In a climate like Houston’s, this can be a big deal.
Heat Pump Installation in Houston
The price of installing a heat pump will vary depending on the model you choose, its size, and its SEER (seasonal energy efficiency ratio) rating. Of course, whether you're installing a new heat pump or upgrading an old one, our team is here to help. That means more than just handling the install – it means inspecting your home, calculating your requirements, and helping you choose the best model for your needs and budget.

Like other heating and cooling units, heat pumps are not immune to breakdowns. Of course, also like traditional HVACs, regular maintenance can be helpful in preventing damage to the unit.

When your air ducts fill with dust and buildup, they can shoot allergens, dirt, and mold spores all over your home.

At The AC Guy, we are happy to provide top-quality air duct replacement and installation services. If your inspection reveals significant damage, we can help you decide on the right replacement to keep you comfortable and reduce your expenses.
What People Are Asking
Is it cheaper to heat with gas or heat pump?
It can be cheaper to heat with gas or a heat pump, depending on your location. In some cases, gas is the cheaper option, while in others, the heat pump is more cost effective. To find out which is best for you, it's important to consult with a local heating specialist.
Can I heat my whole house with a heat pump?
The answer to this question really depends on the size and layout of your house, as well as the climate you live in. A heat pump can certainly be used to heat a whole house, but it may not be the most efficient or cost-effective option depending on your specific situation.
How long do heat pumps last?
Heat pumps are becoming increasingly popular to heat and cool homes more efficiently. But how long do they last?
On average, a heat pump will last around 15 years before it needs to be replaced. However, with proper maintenance, some heat pumps can last up to 20 years or more. Proper maintenance includes regular cleaning and servicing of the unit, as well as using it in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions.
Do heat pumps use a lot of electricity?
It depends on the size of the heat pump and the climate in which it is being used. In general, though, heat pumps use much less electricity than traditional heating or cooling systems.
How much does it cost to install a heat pump?
Installing a heat pump can be a significant investment, but the long-term benefits often make it worth the upfront cost. There are several factors that will affect the final cost of your heat pump installation, including the type and size of heat pump you select, as well as the specific needs of your home.
