Pittsburgh PA Heat Pump Services Heat Pump Installation, Repair & Maintenance

This type of system is an excellent alternative for homeowners whose homes are unable to accommodate the proper ventilation needs of other types of heating systems or do not have access to natural gas or propane.

There are many advantages of modern heat pumps, including the ability to both heat and cool your home from one, efficient system. A heat pump does not convert electricity into heat, but instead, absorbs warmth from the atmosphere or ground. The process of heat transfer eliminates greenhouse gas emissions, safety risks, and the dust and temperature fluctuations of traditional HVAC equipment. You also have more options when it comes to the location of your heat pump since the unit does not require a flue to vent exhaust gases. Schedule an appointment with a member of our licensed team!
