Heat Pump Installation

With proper installation and care, heat pumps are designed to be long-lasting and durable. The experts at Bell Brothers provide high-quality heat pump installation, repair, and replacement to the residents of Des Moines, Iowa, and the surrounding areas.

What Is a Heat Pump?

A heat pump is a dual heating and cooling system that can be used throughout the year. Rather than having a furnace and an air conditioner, this convenient machine provides you with both services, saving you space and money in the long run. It is designed to regulate comfortable indoor temperatures indoors while being more efficient and cost-effective than natural gas or propane.


How does a Heat Pump Work?

Heat pumps harness the heat from the outside and release it into your home through your ventilation system as warm air. The heat from the surrounding air is collected by a refrigerant circulating through the system. That refrigerant is then compressed, creating a high-temperature, high-pressure gas, which is then distributed throughout the home by the ducts.

Another great feature of heat pumps is that they can also reverse this process. This means that during the winter, or during unseasonably cool days, they can capture hot air from within your home and release it into the outdoors to reduce the temperature inside.


Types of Heat Pumps

Whether you are located on the plains or near a water source, heat pumps can be utilized to manage the temperature of your home, no matter the time of year. These are the two most common types of heat pumps.

Air Source Heat Pumps: An air source heat pump that absorbs heat from the surrounding outside air and releases it inside the building.

Water Source Heat Pumps: A water source heat pump uses the same unit as an air source heat pump, but instead absorbs energy from a lake, pond, river, or other nearby body of water by utilizing submerged pipes.


Heat Pump Installation Process

Installing a heat pump is a job best done by professionals. At Bell Brothers, we install the two main units of a heat pump.

  • Indoor Air Handler: This is the system that moves the air through the home’s ventilation.
  • Outdoor Unit: The outdoor unit features a compressor that circulates refrigerant. This absorbs and releases heat as it transfers from the indoor and outdoor units.


How Long Does a Heat Pump System Last?

Heat pump systems are designed to be strong, stable solutions for heating and cooling your home efficiently. With proper maintenance and care from the professionals at Bell Brothers, a new heat pump system will last 10 to 15 years.
