Your Journey From Furnace to Heat Pump
Replacing a gas furnace with an electric heat pump requires planning. Your electrical system must have sufficient power for an electric heating and cooling system. If it does not, you must update your breaker panel.
The good news is that the federal government is offering a 30 percent tax credit for both electrical panel upgrades and heat pump installation through 2032.
If you have inadequate insulation in your home or leaky ductwork, you may want to address those deficiencies before we install your new equipment. Ask us how Aeroseal duct sealing and loose-fill ProCat insulation can improve your comfort.
Our qualified technicians will choose the correct heat pump for the size of your Phoenix, AZ, home. We will discuss the features you might want and order the equipment if we still need to get it in stock.
On installation day, we will install the outdoor unit, which contains the compressor and condenser coil, on a cement slab next to your home. We will connect it to the indoor air handler with electrical wiring and a refrigerant line. The air handler ties into your ductwork, which distributes conditioned air.
We will ensure it is working correctly with your thermostat and answer any questions you have about your new system. We will haul away your old furnace and air conditioner and tidy our work area.
Upgrading Your Heat Pump
If you own a heat pump, consider upgrading it before it reaches the end of its useful service life. Heat pumps typically last 10 to 15 years, depending on how well they are maintained.
If your heat pump is less than 10 years old but needs frequent repairs, being proactive and replacing it sooner rather than later can avoid a system breakdown.
As it ages, your heat pump loses efficiency. You may notice utility costs have increased and that your heat pump works harder to maintain your thermostat setting. Higher bills and decreasing efficiency tell you it is time to upgrade.
We can guide you through features and new technology your current heat pump may not have. Need help finding rebates? We can do that too.
