Heat Pump Installation and Service

An electric heating-and-cooling alternative for homes in the NY Capital Region, Hudson Valley and Western Vermont

For many decades, electric heat pumps have been popular in milder climates in the southern United States and Europe. They offer an alternative to central air conditioning, furnaces and boilers. Recently, residential heat pump systems have become more efficient and technologically advanced, making them a viable source for air conditioning and supplemental heat in the Northeast.

At Main-Care Energy, our employee-owners have extensive training and experience in installing, servicing and repairing state-of-the-art heat pumps from top brands, like Samsung. If you’re interested in exploring heat pump options in Albany, Catskill, Lake George, Glens Falls or other communities we serve in New York and Western Vermont, reach out to Main-Care Energy today.

How does a heat pump work?

Unlike a furnace or boiler, a heat pump does not generate heat. Instead, this system transfers heat between the outside and the inside of your home using an outdoor compressor and an indoor air handler. It may be cold outside in the winter, but there is still some heat in the air. Your compressor absorbs this heat with refrigerant and then, transfers it to the air handler, which distributes it to your rooms.

In the summer, the process is reversed. The indoor air handler absorbs heat from inside your home. That heat is transferred to the compressor, where it’s expelled outside. Cooled air is then returned to your home.

There are significant benefits to a heat pump system:

  1. It can be installed in your home even if you don’t have ductwork.
  2. It lowers your reliance on a furnace or boiler during the fall and early winter.
  3. Heat pumps can provide zoned heating and cooling, so you only heat or cool the rooms you occupy and save money.
