Welcome to the Furlong HVAC Services Guide to Heat Pumps

If you’re looking for efficient heating and cooling for your home or business in Gananoque, Lansdowne, Kingston, and surrounding areas, a heat pump is a great option to consider. On this page, we’ll look at the benefits of heat pumps, the difference between regular heat pumps and cold climate heat pumps, and why homeowners should consider choosing a heat pump over a gas furnace.

What is a Heat Pump

A heat pump is a combination of equipment that uses the principles of thermodynamics to transfer heat energy between two different temperature zones. It is similar to an air conditioner unit, but it can also work in reverse to either cool or heat a space. During the summer, a heat pump functions like an air conditioner by removing heat from inside a building and expelling it outside. During the winter, it reverses the process and extracts heat from outside air or the ground and transfers it inside, effectively providing warmth to a building. Heat pumps are highly efficient and cost-effective as they use electricity to move heat from one place to another instead of generating heat through combustion. They are widely used for residential and commercial heating and cooling applications and are popular for their energy-efficient and environmentally-friendly features.

What’s the Difference Between a Regular Heat Pump and a Cold Climate Heat Pump?

The key difference between a regular heat pump and a cold climate heat pump is their ability to operate efficiently in extremely low temperatures. Regular heat pumps work by absorbing heat from the air outside and transferring it inside, but they struggle to do so in extremely cold temperatures. On the other hand, cold climate heat pumps use advanced technology to extract heat from even the coldest air, making them ideal for areas with harsh winter weather. These heat pumps feature components such as scroll compressors, larger coils, and better insulation to ensure they’re effective in highly cold temperatures. Additionally, they can come with features like defrost cycles which help remove frost buildup on the compressor.

Cold climate heat pumps offer a cost-efficient, energy-efficient, and low-carbon solution to heat homes and buildings in colder climates.
