Heat Pumps

Heat pump service.

Camflo Heating & Cooling is experienced in the service, repair, and installation of heat pumps in Lafayette, 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 Camflo Heating & Cooling 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.

“We asked to have a service inspection done on our heat pump to verify it and our furnace were working properly and had some questions answered that we did not understand. All was checked and working properly and learned where we needed our thermostat setting for better function of the system of our heat pump and gas heating . Like any new item there is a learning curve and we feel satisfied with help we got from the service technician. We are very satisfied with the Camflo and they have always come when we needed them and know what they are doing and if they have questions there is always someone to back the technician up as well.”

Heat Pump Installation in Lafayette, IN 47909

“We have been very pleased with the services provided by Camflo. From the times Reuben and Phil came to review the job specifics, through the installation by Scott and Brock, the service has been thorough, professional and prompt. That being said, the thing I was most impressed with was the attitudes of positivity, kindness and respect they showed my family and myself. I never felt like I left my home with strangers when they were there alone. That kind of trust is rare these days and we really appreciate it.

Thank you again for the top notch job and service on this project!
