Heat Pumps in Brandon, MS & Surrounding Areas
The heat pump continues to grow in popularity as a home comfort system in Brandon, MS as well as throughout Central Mississippi and in many other parts of the country. What makes a heat pump installation appealing to many homeowners is that these systems can operate as both heating and cooling systems. Homes that only have electric power can enjoy more efficient heating than they would with an electric furnace while also having an excellent cooling system for summer.

How a Heat Pump System Works
A heat pump is a complex piece of machinery—but the fundamentals of how it works are easy to explain. Take a standard air conditioning system. It uses refrigerant to extract heat from the indoors along evaporative coils and then exhausts the heat to the outdoors along condenser coils.
What if you could flip the operation so the outdoor coils extracted heat and the indoor coils released it? That’s what a heat pump does: an air conditioner that can change the direction it moves heat so it’s both a cooling and heating system.
Is a Heat Pump Installation a Good Investment?
It depends on the home. A heat pump costs more to install than a standard air conditioner. But it also replaces the furnace or other heater. Heat pumps have a number of other advantages aside from their dual heating/cooling functions to consider:
- Energy Efficiency: Heat pumps use less electricity to run than electric furnaces, which makes them great for all–electric homes.
- Comfort: Electric and gas furnaces can make a home feel stuffy in the winter. The comfort from a heat pump feels much better.
- Safety: A heat pump is one of the safest types of heating systems on the market, producing few emissions. The outside of the cabinet doesn’t even get hot when the system is running.
You May Need a Dual Fuel System: A Hybrid Heat Pump
Heat pumps can run into trouble during the coldest days of the year. Since a heat pump must draw thermal energy from the air outdoors to bring it indoors, it can struggle doing this when the temperature drops too low.
Many heat pumps can handle a huge range of temperatures, but if your heat pump requires help in the chilliest weather, we recommend a dual fuel system, a.k.a. a hybrid heat dual fuel system or dual fuel heat pump. This type of heat pump has a backup furnace that comes on when necessary to prevent efficiency loss. Our service professionals can help you find out if hybrid heat matches your needs.
