Expert Heat Pump Installation in Richmond Hill, GA

A heat pump is one of the most energy-efficient units to install in your home or commercial premises. Despite the name, heat pumps also have cooling capabilities. They can cool your space on hot summer days. They are an advanced version of a regular HVAC system

The best part is that they do not require ductwork systems to operate, so residents can install a heat pump without worrying about duct systems. Galbreath Heating & Air provides affordable heat pump installation services in Richmond Hill, GA.

What Is a Heat Pump?

A heat pump is an energy-efficient heating and cooling system. It comprises two units that provide heating and cooling, depending on the set profile. In hot weather, a heat pump disperses heat from the indoor unit to the outdoor unit, ensuring cool indoor air. Conversely, it extracts heat during winter from the outdoor unit and then distributes it indoors.

Unmatched Heat Pump Installation

Proper heat pump installation is pivotal in ensuring you attain your heating and cooling needs. Unlike traditional HVAC systems, installing a heat pump might only require 3–4 hours. It entails installing an outdoor and indoor unit. However, it all depends on the HVAC contractor you choose. 

After an initial assessment and sizing, our experts will first mount the indoor unit on your wall using brackets. The next step involves securing the outdoor unit on the ground or outside wall before laying the pipes. The last step entails connecting the relevant pipes and testing your heat pump.

Galbreath Heating & Air also offers heat pump repairs, replacement, and maintenance. Given our experience, you can be sure your new heat pump installation will work optimally without issues.

How Does a Heat Pump Operate?

Heat pumps operate by moving air between cold and hot zones. On a cold winter day in Richmond Hill, your heat pump will draw heat from the grounded outdoor unit and then transfer it to your indoor space. The outdoor unit has a refrigerant liquid that turns hot air into cold gas before dispensing it indoors.

When temperatures rise, your heat pump will conversely heat the refrigerant into hot gas before distributing it into your space. Heat pumps are excellent alternatives to conventional HVAC systems since they are more energy-efficient and do not require complex settings. 

Heat Pump Benefits

Heat pump installation can be a worthwhile investment. In any case, this system works both ways. It can heat as well as cool your space during different seasons. Below are the benefits of a heat pump.

Energy Efficiency

The energy efficiency of heat pumps is unmatched. These units do not generate heat or cold air. Instead, they transfer air from the outdoor unit to your indoor space. They can help reduce your utility bills drastically.

Ductless System

Heat pumps do not require a ductwork system. Most are ductless, leading to more savings. However, building owners can still install a ductwork system to supply hot or cold air in the entire building.

Quiet Operation

Noise-sensitive buildings like schools and hospitals can benefit from professional heat pump installations. These appliances operate silently, making them suitable for such situations.

Nominal Maintenance

Aside from the routine annual maintenance, heat pumps are easy to maintain. They have minimal mechanical parts, making them less prone to issues. However, this does not take away the fact that they require regular maintenance.

Enriched Air Quality

Heat pumps are exceptionally versatile. Besides heating and cooling, they can also act as dehumidifiers, helping improve your indoor air quality.

When To Repair Your Heat Pump

While heat pumps require fewer repairs, they are not exempt from malfunctions. Your heat pump might fail unexpectedly. 

You can tell that your heat pump needs repairs by checking out the following signs:

  • Increased Energy Bills: If you receive high energy bills with no explanation, your heat pump might be the culprit. An inspection of your heat pump can determine if it is the cause of your spiked bills.
  • Whirring Noises: Unusual noises and burning smells might mean your heat pump is about to fail. Loose connections and malfunctioning components can cause your heat pump to emit strange smells or produce weird noises.
  • Erratic Temperatures: If your heat pump is blowing cold or hot instead of providing comfort, it might be time to schedule urgent repairs.

When To Replace Your Heat Pump

You may need to replace your heat pump if it calls for frequent repairs or delivers poor airflow. You can also consider a replacement if your heat pump is older than a decade or severely damaged. We can help you determine when to replace your heat pump.

Quality Heat Pump Installation 

Now that you know the benefits of heat pumps, consider installing one on your premises. Heat pumps are affordable and energy-efficient. They have both heating and cooling capabilities, making them ideal for any cooling or heating needs. Call our team at Galbreath Heating & Air for quality heat pump installation in Richmond Hill, GA.

Brandon is AWESOME!!! I have a new build home that’s almost 4 years old and experiencing HVAC issues. I originally had a different company come out that said I have a leaking coil and in total recommended close to $10K repairs to fix. Also they said the coil was on back order and never called me again. Awesome. Brandon came out for a second opinion and he was extremely polite, patient and courteous. He explained everything thoroughly and did not try to upsell us on unneeded items. His recommended fixes made sense and the infamous coil… their company called on the spot and found one that we could have in 1-3 business days and we walked away paying half the cost of the original quote. For anyone in the coastal Georgia area, Galbreath is a great option. We won’t go anywhere else from now on!
Mary C.
Galbreath Heating and Air went above and beyond when our upstairs unit went out in July. We have used them for everything since and are using them again to replace our downstairs unit. All there techs are super polite, knowledgeable, and trustworthy.
