Heat Pump Repair, Replacement, and New Installations
Heat Pumps do exactly as the name implies, they move hot air. But did you know that heat pumps can also cool your home too? This versatility is one of the biggest advantages of a heat pump… You won’t have the need to run a heating and air conditioning system separately. Heat pumps also work extremely efficiently, because they just transfer the heat, rather than burn excessive fuel (gas or electricity) to create it. This makes them a little more green than most gas-burning furnaces.
Heat Pumps tend to work best in moderate climates like what we have in BC, so they make an excellent upgrade instead of a furnace and air conditioner and you’ll save a little money each month on your energy bills.

More Heat Pump Advantages
Energy Savings: Many experts agree that switching from a traditional heating/cooling system to a more modern heat pump can cut your electricity bills by as much as 20-40%! That can translate into substantial savings and there are often rebates available through the state for this type of efficiency upgrade. (ask us for details)
Safer Than Gas: Traditional gas powered furnaces or heating systems, while very safe when installed properly still have the risk of carbon monoxide leaks or even fire. Modern heat pumps do not rely on gas and are a much safer alternative.
Improve Your Indoor Air Quality: Traditional ductwork is a haven for dust and debris that can become airborne in your home or building. Heat pumps do not require extensive runs of duct work. They reduce humidity, making the air inside your home easier to breathe and they have filtration systems to keep dust and particulate out of your air. If you or loved ones within your home have sensitive airways or problems with allergies and/or asthma then a heat pump is a great option.
Reduced Maintenance Requirements: One of the biggest draw backs to any home heating or cooling system is the maintenance! A good quality heat pump that has been properly installed can last for decades, only requiring minimal maintenance every 3-5 years. Typical HVAC systems can require maintenance on a semi-annual or annual basis.
We Work With Two Kinds Of Heat Pumps:
Air Source Heat Pumps – This is probably the most common type of heat pump. Air Source Heat Pumps take heat from the air outside and pump it inside through the refrigerant loaded coils. The function could be compared to the back of your household fridge. Friesen's Heating & Air Conditioning Inc. can sell, service and install air source heat pumps.
Geothermal Heat Pumps – Geothermal heat pumps work quite a bit differently than air source heat pumps. Geothermal heat pumps actually absorb the heat from the ground or water and then transfer it indoors, or outdoors. Geothermal heat pumps have buried pipes filled with water or refrigerant. The refrigerant cooled piping system can be a closed-loop or open-loop. With a closed-loop system, the liquid circulates through the pipes repeatedly transferring the heat continuosly. With your open-loop system, water is pumped from the underground water source. At this point the heat is extracted from the water via your heat pump, and the water returns to the source. This is a very efficient and environmentally friendly way to heat your home. Friesen's Heating & Air Conditioning Inc. can repair, services, and maintain Geothermal Heat Pumps.
