Feeling the heat?
Whether it is for an individual area, office space or your whole house, The Stove Store can provide you with the right system to provide you with a refreshingly cool comfortable environment that your whole family can enjoy.
Air source heat pumps absorb natural warmth from the air outside and gently distribute it throughout your home. They are the most efficient type of home heating system and offer the added benefits of air conditioning and summer dehumidification.
How an air source heat pump works
An air source heat pump uses a refrigerant system and a condenser to absorb heat at one place, and release it at another. The heat pump absorbs heat from the outside air during the heating season and circulates it in your home. In the summer it works in reverse, removing heat and humidity from your home and releasing it outside.
Types of heat pumps
An air source heat pump can provide whole-house heating and cooling when it is fully-ducted throughout the home. These systems are ideal for new home construction, or added to existing forced-air systems. Adding a heat pump to a forced-air furnace will optimize the efficiency of the heating system.
A ductless heat pump (or mini-split system) makes a good retrofit to homes with “non-ducted” heating systems. Since they have no ducts, they avoid the energy losses associated with ductwork of central forced air systems.
Our experienced and knowledgeable staff is available to answer any questions you may have about air conditioners and air source heat pumps and to help you choose which model is the best fit for your home and budget.
