Heat Pumps in New Braunfels, TX
Central air conditioners work by gathering heat inside your home and sending it outside. And then, one day, someone decided to make the central air conditioner work in reverse—and that’s how we got the heat pump. Heat pumps are essentially air conditioners that can reverse their flow of refrigerant, giving you a system that can either heat or cool your home. With that kind of convenience and versatility, it’s no wonder these systems are becoming more and more popular by the day.

Heat Pumps: Perfect for New Braunfels Weather
Heat pump systems happen to be amazing systems for use in a climate like ours. First, take into account their ability to both cool and heat. With the flick of a switch, you can change from heating to cooling and vice versa. Second, consider that heat pumps operate at their most efficient in temperatures above 30°F. Historically, New Braunfels weather never falls below that point. Colder states may be too much for heat pumps, but in our region, they’re the most logical choice. In that regard, a heat pump can even be more efficient than using a gas furnace.

Heat Pump Systems Require Professional Installation and Replacement
Heat pump installation is similar to that of central air conditioning installation. On the surface, you and your guests won’t be able to discern whether you’re using a heat pump or central AC. On the backend, however, you can expect that your technician will need to make several calculations to find a unit with the correct capacity. Too small or too big will cause the unit to malfunction, so don’t rely on anyone but a pro for your heat pump replacement or installation.
Likewise, heat pump replacement is not so simple as plugging in a new system. Efficiency and performance ratings are changing every year, so you can’t just expect to install a new version of the same system. You’ll know you need replacement when maintaining your system becomes more expensive than installing a new one.
