Trane Heat pumps are a great, fuel-saving alternative to traditional heating and cooling systems. They provide the best of both worlds by combining the ability to heat and cool your home in a single unit while working as a primary heat source
(when paired with an oil, electric, or gas system) to save on energy and fuel.
Heat pumps are identical to an air conditioner, but are much more efficient and offer significantly more savings!
A heat pump is an outdoor unit that uses a compressor and cycles refrigeration - similar to an air conditioner - but is designed to reverse that cycle to heat or cool a controlled space. However, rather than creating heat, heat pumps extract heat from the outside air (even when temperatures are extremely cold outside) and transport it through your home's duct work and into your home. When used for air conditioning purposes, heat pumps remove and displace the heat from inside the home to make the indoor temperature cooler. Heat pumps operate exclusively on electricity, and because they don't generate heat, they are extremely efficient.
Heat Pumps installations require 2 main components:
- An indoor coil that is installed above or below the furnace (depending on the air flow) to access the duct work, and
- The heat pump that is installed outside
Even though a heat pump can provide warm temperatures as the primary heat source, it does require the use of a backup system (gas, oil, or electric central forced air systems) if temperatures reach below 25 degrees- this way the efficiency remains high but the edge is taken off if temperatures dip below freezing.
It's Hard to Stop a Trane
Trane offers a variety of heat pumps that range in efficiency (from 14 SEER to a 20 SEER units) and features, including the Weather-Guard top that can only be found on select Trane Heat Pump and Air Conditioning products. These Weather-Guard tops are specifically designed to keep pine needles, leaves, branches (kids find ways to keep busy in the backyard!) and debris out of the outdoor unit fan. Not only are they functional, but they look great too!
Trane equipment is also known for being Unstoppable! As a Trane Comfort Specialist, we want only the best for our customers, and that means installing a quality product that can withstand all elements. That's why all Trane products are tested to extremes, from harsh winds to baseball-sized hail:
Think size doesn't matter? Don't be fooled. A properly sized heat pump system makes all the difference in the world. That's why we do a load calculation on your home to determine the heat loss, so you pick the right equipment designed specifically for your home, every time.
Most contractors are out the door once the installation takes place, and most of the time the job is only 90% complete. However, we make sure to check the airflow, run the equipment in all modes, check the temperature rise in each cycle, and make sure everything's running smoothly before we leave the home. And, once a year passes, we will come back to perform a 20 Point Precision Tune Up on the equipment to ensure your new system is running properly and efficiently.
