Danco Comfort Services is experienced in the service, repair, and installation of heat pumps in Waco, TX, 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 Danco Comfort Services 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.

Heat Pump Installation in Waco, TX 76712
“Could not be happier with our new heat pump. We had a 25 year old heat pump that was ailing before the historic freeze storm and had the new unit installed a week later. No more noisy equipment (inside or outside) and no more non stop running of the equipment, just consistent air flow and desired temperature with very little use of compressor (anticipating major reduction in energy bill). From our initial visit with Anthony to the installation by Timothy & Jeffrey every aspect was handled professionally and with 100% expertise. Yes we bought a Cadillac and it was expensive but we are completely sure we made the correct move. Call us in August and next February and we are positive that we will feel the same. Kent & Susan”

Heat Pump Installation in Waco, TX 76707
“Really great installation in our 110 year old home. They had to crawl around in our nasty 110 year old attic and work around belongings we had stored up there. Really conscientious, high quality workers. Very conscious keeping things clean. When it came time for them to cut holes for the air vents in our ceiling, Jeff stood on a ladder in the room below, holding a big plastic bin over where the hole was being cut. All the debris fell into the bin – none of it hit the floor. Minimal clean up required. Lots of care in the entire process. Plus, I work from home and the whole time the worked I could hear their good natured teasing and banter while they worked. These are the right guys for any HVAC work you need done.
