What is a Heat Pump?
Chinook Heating & Air offers heat pump installation in the Tri-Cities area because the climate offers cool crisp air in the summer and gentle welcoming heat in the winter. Heat pumps aren’t just an alternative for a traditional gas or electric furnace, they can also replace a traditional air conditioner.
How is this possible? A regular air conditioner pulls hot air out of the home and blows it outside. This is what cools your home in the summer and makes an air conditioner unnecessary in the winter. Alternatively, a heat pump, “pumps” in warm or cool air depending on the season. That’s one of the key benefits of having a heat pump; one system can handle both heating and cooling.
Heat pumps offer reliability and efficiency every day of the year. Since over half of the energy usage in your home goes towards heating and cooling, choosing a quality heat pump can have a large impact on your energy consumption.
