Home comfort and energy savings are top priorities for homeowners here in southern Maine. With recent advances in technology allowing heat pumps to operate at temperatures as low as -15°F, heat pumps are becoming a popular option for efficiently keeping Maine homes comfortable year-round — especially during cold Maine winters.
How Heat Pumps Work
Heat pump systems use a process similar to refrigeration to transfer heat from one place to another. In the winter, an outdoor unit collects ambient, low-temperature heat, compresses it, and moves it indoors to provide your home with heating. In the summer, your heat pump system uses a reverse process to collect indoor heat and move it outdoors, keeping your home cool.
Energy Efficient Heating & Cooling
Rather than using a fuel source like oil or propane to generate heat, heat pumps use electricity to move existing heat. This makes them extremely energy efficient. With a heat pump, you can keep your home more comfortable while reducing your reliance on fossil fuels and lowering your energy bills.
In addition to benefits like greater indoor comfort and energy savings, heat pumps offer benefits like quiet operation, better indoor air quality, and a reduced carbon footprint.
Customizable Solutions for Your Home
Heat pump systems come in a variety of configurations, offering a truly customized home comfort solution. Mini-split heat pump systems, for example, consist of one outdoor unit and one or more indoor “mini-split” units. These indoor units can be mounted on a wall, floor, or ceiling and deliver focused heating or cooling to a specific area inside the home. Install one indoor unit for supplemental heat in a particular room, or install multiple indoor units for a whole-home, custom comfort solution.
You may also opt for a ducted heat pump, which connects to existing ductwork to provide heating and air conditioning with a more efficient system. Whatever your needs, Goggin Energy can design a custom heat pump solution that will provide your home with reliable home comfort.
