Heat Pumps

Heat pump service.

Panther Heating and Cooling is experienced in the service, repair, and installation of heat pumps in Rock Hill, SC, and its surrounding area. A heat pump is a device that transfers heat from one place to another, from indoors to outdoors or from outdoors to indoors. For homes with no access to natural gas, heat pumps offer an efficient and reliable solution for heating and cooling.

How Do Heat Pumps Work?

In the winter, a heat pump works like a heater, extracting heat energy from outside and transferring it inside. In the summer, the process reverses, and it will remove heat from your home and transfer it outside like an air conditioner. Heat pumps do this so well that many people in warmer climates exclusively rely on a heat pump for year-round comfort. For those living in colder climates, they use electric-powered heat pumps in conjunction with their gas or oil furnace resulting in lower heating costs.

Heat pumps work with a series of coils drawing energy from air, water, or the ground. In this way, they are very environmentally friendly and are the most energy-efficient way to heat and cool your home. Heat pumps also work extremely efficiently, because they simply transfer heat, rather than burn fuel to create it. This makes them a greener alternative to traditional gas or oil furnaces. Though you may think you’re unfamiliar with them, they traditionally heat swimming pools and hot tubs, so you most likely have come in contact with them and not even known it.

Different Types of Heat Pumps

There are three types of heat pumps: air-to-air, water source, and geothermal. As mentioned above, they collect their heat from the air, water, and outside-your-home ground and concentrate it for use. Call Panther Heating and Cooling to discuss the basic differences between these types and which one would work best for you and your home.

Are Heat Pumps Expensive?

Installation costs of heat pumps are higher than with a traditional furnace or air conditioner, but the savings over time in annual energy costs make up for the difference in five to ten years. Performing proper operation and maintenance of your heat pump will also save you money, as you’ll use less energy, thus resulting in less cost. Be sure to ask your HVAC professional for the proper thermostat setting and the indoor pump’s fan operation. Not following the recommended guidelines can inhibit the maximized running of the pump and can degrade the unit itself. Regular maintenance can prevent degradation as well. Consistent filter changing or cleaning is necessary for a well-running heat pump. Seasonal cleaning of coils and fans go a long way in preventing poor energy efficiency that can end up costing you more money. The energy difference between a well-maintained system and a neglected one can be anywhere from 10 to 25 percent.

To determine the appropriate type of heat pump for you, which can be contingent upon the geography and climate around your Rock Hill, SC or surrounding-area home or office space, or to discuss any of these topics, call us today at (803) 327-2700 or request service online for an evaluation.

Panther was able to schedule a service call the same afternoon I called. Bobby Foard and partner Williams arrived on time, quickly diagnosed the problem with the thermostat and replaced the faulty unit. Both technicians were professional and personable, giving helpful information for better AC performance. Mr. Foard offered a service maintenance plan by Panther to insure our AC units remain in top condition in the future. The overall service by Panther was excellent and affordable.

Mike, Josh, Bobby and the team at Panther once again took great care of us, this time was for more than maintenance on our 16 year old system. They got us repaired and up and running quickly for less than I thought it would cost. Thanks Panther

Anthony did a great job! He showed up on time, even earlier than I expected due to the window of time given for the appointment. He was courteous and explained every thing he would be doing.
