Bowman Heating and Air is experienced in the service, repair, and installation of heat pumps in Petal, MS, 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 Bowman Heating and Air 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.

“I have had trouble with my heat pump for several years. Anytime I would call the folks at Bowman, they always responded rapidly. This was the case even on weekends. They were always very friendly and courteous. Once they would diagnose the problem, they would take the time to explain it to me and what my options would be. They never forced a decision on me and was always very patient.
Finally, it was to the point that the unit was no longer serviceable. Again, I called on a Friday afternoon about 5pm because my air had stopped working during the day. Within 30 minutes, Mr. Bowman pulled in my driveway. He and I both new that I would need a completely new system. He prepared a quote for me with several different options that would suit my needs and budget. Financing was also an available option. Once I decided on the unit, it was only a matter of days, and they were here installing the new system. While they were here, they were very courteous and even put down floor mats in my home to protect my floors. The unit performs flawlessly, and they made it easy for me to get through a difficult time. I honestly cannot say enough good things about this company. They earned my trust and they are who I will do business with anytime a need arises.”
