Improved Comfort Year-Round
Horn Plumbing & Heating specializes in heat pump installation for homes and businesses in Pennsylvania, and we’ve provided these services for more than 40 years. A heat pump is a singular heating and cooling solution and an alternative to having an air conditioner and furnace. Heat pumps are as efficient as the best air conditioners and much more efficient than most other heating technologies because they transfer heat energy as opposed to generating heat. Recent advancements have made them even more practical in colder areas like ours, and this is why so many homeowners and businesses in our region are making the switch when it comes time to install a new HVAC system. Heat pumps are affordable to install but can also last for 20 years or more and thus provide a low total cost of ownership. Call us today or contact us to learn more about your heat pump installation options.

When Is It Time for a New Heat Pump Installation?
The 15-year mark for air-sourced heat pumps and the 20-year mark for geothermal heat pumps is the point at which most systems will no longer be operating at peak efficiency. Therefore, while you can often get more life out of these systems, it will generally save you money over the next 15 or 20 years to replace them proactively. If you have noticed your energy costs rising compared to seasons past or your system is requiring frequent repairs, these can be signs as well. We also encourage our customers to watch for signs like unusual noises, strange smells, hot or cold spots, and short cycling, and if you notice any of those, call us to schedule an inspection through which we’ll diagnose the underlying issues.

Heat Pump Installation Advantages
If you need a new HVAC system and are considering heat pump installation, the team at Horn recommends exploring the advantages. Heat pumps cost the same to run as air conditioners but are cheaper to run than furnaces and other heating systems. While we recommend seasonal tune-ups for your heat pump, they tend to require less maintenance overall than combustion-based systems. Heat pumps are safer too since they don’t burn fuel and let off toxic gases. They are better for the environment due to lower carbon emissions and have a longer expected lifespan than furnaces as well.
Standard Air Source Heat Pumps
Most of the heat pumps currently installed in our area are air sourced. That means that they transfer heat energy to and from the ambient air. They are affordable to install and highly cost-effective and energy-efficient over the life of the equipment. These systems both heat and cool, and modern heat pumps even operate in colder temperatures, which has made them a viable option in our region.
Ductless Heat Pumps
Ductless heat pumps are better known as mini-splits. These are similar to heat pumps in that they are split systems that transfer heat energy. The main difference is that they are not connected to ductwork but instead blow air directly from the indoor unit into the living space. It is possible to how multiple indoor units are connected to one outdoor unit, which allows for a zoned HVAC system.

Heat pump troubles are never convenient, but Horn understands that they can be a greater inconvenience and even a health risk when they happen outside normal business hours.
