Think Fast: Furnace or Heat Pump?


Deciding which heating system to install in your home can certainly be a bit overwhelming: there are just so many great options, how do you even begin to choose? Well, we’ve decided to help you narrow down your options by talking about two of our favorite systems, the furnace and the heat pump. 

We think that both of these systems are pretty awesome, and below, we’ve explained the benefits of each. All you have to do is keep reading to find out more (and yes, remember to contact our team when you’re looking for a heat pump or furnace in Grand Rapids.)

Let’s Dive In!

Up First: The Furnace

Furnaces are by far the most popular home heating systems on the market today. Why? Because they’re efficient, effective, and reliable—these forced-air systems are capable of lasting for upwards of 15 years!

Furnaces come in two different models:

Installing a furnace is a great way to keep you and your family warm and toasty, no matter the temperature outside. Ask our experts about furnace installation today.

And Next: The Heat Pump

Heat pumps work much like a traditional air conditioner, relying on the flow of refrigerant to transfer heat from one place to another. But, what sets the heat pump apart from a standard AC is the reversing valve, which reverses the direction the refrigerant flows through the system. This allows home heating in addition to cooling!

That’s right: with just one system you’ll be able to heat and cool your home! And not only that, but these systems are super-efficient, highly effective, and come in both ducted and ductless models, so no matter how much space you have, you’ll be able to find a system suited for you!

Which Do You Prefer?

Both of these systems are pretty great, so you really can’t go wrong with either. Of course, though, the best way to make sure that you make the right decision for your home is by hiring a certified HVAC professional to help you out.

See, when you hire a professional, you can be sure that the system installed in your home is the one that is best suited for your unique comfort and budget needs—installing a new system is definitely not a job for amateurs. Trust us, when it comes to your comfort and your budget, you don’t want to take any risks.
