A lot of homeowners living in Berkeley or Oakland, CA find themselves focusing more and more each year on improving energy efficiency.
Hassler provides installation, repair and maintenance services for heat pumps which is a cost-effective way of heating your home in winter months. Heat pumps typically have a higher efficiency rating than “gas fired” furnaces and have the added benefit of providing cooling in the summer. Heat pumps are perfectly suited for the East Bay Area’s moderate climate. They offer an energy-efficient alternative to furnaces and air conditioners. Similar to your refrigerator, heat pumps use electricity to move heat from a cool space to a warm space, making the cool space cooler and the warm space warmer. During the heating season, heat pumps move heat from the cool outdoors into your warm house and during the cooling season, heat pumps move heat from your cool house into the warm outdoors. Because they move heat rather than generate heat, heat pumps can provide up to 4 times the amount of energy they consume.
What is a Heat Pump?
Heat pumps make use of electricity to move heat between cool and warm spaces. They operate very similarly to standard air conditioners for cooling, yet they’re able to provide a source of heat during the colder months of the year. Heat pumps are so effective that many people who live in warmer climates like California are able to make use of them the entire year-round, without the need for other gas fueled heating units.
Those who live in cooler climates find that heat pumps used in conjunction with oil or gas-fueled furnaces can help to improve home performance to a large extent, resulting in a great deal of savings on your monthly energy bill.
Like a standard air conditioning unit, a heat pump sits outside of the home, with components that can also be found inside in the form of an evaporator coil and blower motor for treating and moving conditioned air. Heat pumps are so quiet in operation that many people don’t even notice they’re on.
