Heat Pump Installation Downingtown | Geothermal Heat Pumps Downingtown
Quite simply, heat pumps are the most energy efficient way to heat and cool your home. Geothermal (or ground source) heat pumps even include an optional water heating function. Heat pumps rely on the relatively constant temperatures beneath the ground.
Efficiency Heat Pumps
During the winter months, your DiBiase designed and installed heat pump will absorb heat stored in the ground and carry it via water inside the underground pipes to heat your home. Just how energy efficient is a heat pump? Well, even the best gas furnaces are 98% energy efficient, while a heat pump is capable of delivering energy efficiencies of 400% – 600%.
How Heat Pumps Work in Summer
In the summer, your heat pump will work in reverse, removing heat from your home to cool your great indoors while sending the heat underground through the heat pump’s loop system. Cool, comfortable conditions. Same great energy efficiency levels.
A ductless heat pump is a zoned heating and cooling system that consists of one outdoor unit and a number of indoor evaporative units with refrigerant lines, not ductwork, connecting them. The outdoor unit is a condenser that works to transfer heat from either inside the home in the cooler months or from outside the home in the warmer months. The refrigerant lines transfer this heat or cool to individual rooms or areas and release it into the air.
Ductless heat pumps are considered to be more efficient than standard heat pumps that employ traditional ductwork. It is estimated that up to 30% of energy loss to an HVAC can be attributed to leaky or uninsulated ducts. In addition, clogged ducts or filters can also impact the efficiency of the unit negatively. Ductless heat pumps also allow for targeted heating or cooling, which lets a homeowner heat or cool a specific area of the home instead of having to heat or cool the entire home in order to impact the area.

Yes, a ductless heat pump can heat a whole house. The outdoor condenser can be connected to up to 9 indoor evaporative units spread out across the home’s floor plan, covering individual rooms or areas. For very large homes, two condenser units might be necessary depending on the size and design of the home, just as two HVACs would probably be necessary in the same situation.
