Heat pumps can do an excellent job of heating and cooling homes in Lenexa, KS. They do so by transferring heat from one place to another. This makes them different from furnaces, which have to generate their heat. If you’re interested in having one of these units installed at your place, Summit Heating & Cooling is available to help. Annual HVAC maintenance can keep heat pump systems in their best condition.

    If you’re wondering why it seems as though there’s more interest in these units lately, it’s likely because of their efficiency. Many people in our area are looking for ways in which they can lower their monthly utility bills, and getting a heat pump could help them do so. There are two types of heat pumps, and how they differ has to do with where they absorb heat in the winter and release heat in the summer. In the winter, an air-source heat pump gets its heat from the air outside your home and brings it into your residence, and in the summer, the opposite happens.

    With a ground-source heat pump, which is also known as a geothermal heat pump, the transfer of heat happens in a closed piping system underground. For those of you who are just learning about this type of system, we understand that there could be a lot of questions. At Summit Heating & Cooling, we’re always ready to provide more information to anyone in our area.

    If you already have a heat pump system installed, we recommend that you get it checked out annually. This way, everything can stay in good shape and your system can continue to be as efficient as possible.
