Heat Pumps by Russell & Abbott
There are many different options available for homeowners to choose from when selecting a new air conditioning and heating system for their homes. While most AC and heating systems are installed separately, heat pumps use technology that allows for both heating and cooling all from a single split system. At Russell & Abbott, we sometimes recommend heat pump installation to homeowners looking to replace their older heating and air conditioning systems. Heat pumps are worthy of consideration, as most models are rated highly for efficiency and performance. And when you choose one of our experts for installation or service, you’ll get a visit from a professional who takes the time to make precise calculations and address any repair need using the correct tools and the latest industry standards for accuracy and safety.
Russell & Abbott offers quality heat pumps and provides professional heat pump services serving Maryville, Knoxville, Alcoa, Blount County, Knox County and Loudon County. Call us today to schedule service.
What Is a Heat Pump?
A heat pump contains all of the same components of a conventional air conditioner, but with a few additional parts that allow for heating as well as cooling. Refrigerant cycles throughout the system absorbing heat from the air inside and releasing it outdoors in the summer. But in the cooler months, refrigerant changes direction, bringing heat into the home from the outside air, even in very cool weather. Heat pump systems work well in our climate, and we highly recommend these units to those who are moving into a new home in East Tennessee or for homeowners who want to replace a worn–down heater and an older air conditioner with an efficient dual–function system.
What to Expect from Heat Pump Installation
When you schedule a heat pump installation with one of the professionals on the Russell & Abbott team, we take care to make sure you get the exact size and efficiency levels you need in your home. Precise mathematical calculations are done to determine the size your indoor and outdoor unit must be for optimal results. An undersized unit may break down frequently as it struggles to get your home to the desired temperature, while an oversized system will require a lot of energy to run, and can also lead to over–moisturization of the air in your home.
You want technicians who will take the time to install your new system safely and properly without leaving a mess behind. Our technicians take every precaution when they enter your home. We have pride in our professionalism, which is why every technician wears shoe covers in order to protect your floors. We also offer a two–year labor warranty and a 10–year functional parts warranty for any installation.
