Heat Pumps

Heat pump service.

Reliance Heating and Air Conditioning is experienced in the service, repair, and installation of heat pumps in Scottsdale, AZ, and its surrounding area. A heat pump is a device that transfers heat from one place to another, from indoors to outdoors or from outdoors to indoors. For homes with no access to natural gas, heat pumps offer an efficient and reliable solution for heating and cooling.

How Do Heat Pumps Work?

In the winter, a heat pump works like a heater, extracting heat energy from outside and transferring it inside. In the summer, the process reverses, and it will remove heat from your home and transfer it outside like an air conditioner. Heat pumps do this so well that many people in warmer climates exclusively rely on a heat pump for year-round comfort. For those living in colder climates, they use electric-powered heat pumps in conjunction with their gas or oil furnace resulting in lower heating costs.

Heat pumps work with a series of coils drawing energy from air, water, or the ground. In this way, they are very environmentally friendly and are the most energy-efficient way to heat and cool your home. Heat pumps also work extremely efficiently, because they simply transfer heat, rather than burn fuel to create it. This makes them a greener alternative to traditional gas or oil furnaces. Though you may think you’re unfamiliar with them, they traditionally heat swimming pools and hot tubs, so you most likely have come in contact with them and not even known it.

Different Types of Heat Pumps

There are three types of heat pumps: air-to-air, water source, and geothermal. As mentioned above, they collect their heat from the air, water, and outside-your-home ground and concentrate it for use. Call Reliance Heating and Air Conditioning to discuss the basic differences between these types and which one would work best for you and your home.

Are Heat Pumps Expensive?

Installation costs of heat pumps are higher than with a traditional furnace or air conditioner, but the savings over time in annual energy costs make up for the difference in five to ten years. Performing proper operation and maintenance of your heat pump will also save you money, as you’ll use less energy, thus resulting in less cost. Be sure to ask your HVAC professional for the proper thermostat setting and the indoor pump’s fan operation. Not following the recommended guidelines can inhibit the maximized running of the pump and can degrade the unit itself. Regular maintenance can prevent degradation as well. Consistent filter changing or cleaning is necessary for a well-running heat pump. Seasonal cleaning of coils and fans go a long way in preventing poor energy efficiency that can end up costing you more money. The energy difference between a well-maintained system and a neglected one can be anywhere from 10 to 25 percent.

“I purchased a Trane heat pump from Reliance to replace my failing 28 year old dinosaur. The installers, Kevin and Eliseo, arrived as scheduled and worked tirelessly until the job was completed. They were both extremely courteous and performed the job as pros. Nothing short of a very positive experience in all regards. I highly recommend Reliance for AC needs.”

Heat Pump Replacement in Peoria, AZ 85383

“Today I had our Basement AC/Heat Pump replaced we took Dalen's advice and replaced it with a Trane XV 18 Variable Speed unit since I have been very happy with the other unit we replaced about 6 years ago.
The real reason for this review is to share how pleased we are with the professional service and the detail of the Installation. The work was performed by Kevin, Eliseo, and Roberto they were truly professional with the installation and the care they took in our home covering the floors, etc. They took the time to go over everything with me at the end.

We would definitely recommend This Company and this crew for your Heating and Cooling needs.

“Reliance Heating and A/C installed a new Trane Heat Pump and Air Handler in my townhouse. Daniel was very professional and helped us determine the appropriate system for our needs. The crew showed up on time to do the installation. They were clean and efficient. They had the systems installed and running in a few hours. They cleaned up and hauled all the old equipment away with them. Very thorough and complete systems check upon finishing the install. Pricing was competitive with other Trane installers we checked with. We will use Reliance for our future HVAC needs. Thanks for a great job!”
