Everything You Need To Know About Central Heat Pumps

A central heat pump may be the system you’ve been longing for that can solve this problem. Degree Residential Inc. can help you efficiently heat during cool months and cool during warm months. If you’ve been contemplating a central heat pump in your Fredericton home, we’re here to provide you with all the details and benefits of installing an HVAC system.

What is a Central Heat Pump?

Heat pumps use a reversible refrigeration system that either cools or heats your home depending on the season. Simply put, a central heat pump uses outside air to heat your home in the winter and cool your home in the summer. This type of system requires ductwork to be run throughout the house. We take a scientific approach and do not cut corners or overlook the small details. You are investing in your home and in your family’s year-round comfort & health. Degree Residential will use the best materials and tools to maximize the efficiency, performance and longevity of the system.

An example of The Degree Difference is sealing every joint and connection. This ensures the ductwork has a tight fit with a great seal. 

Additionally, retrofit options are available for houses with existing ductwork. We can upgrade existing inefficient heat sources such as electric, wood or oil furnaces and we utilize as much of your existing ductwork as possible to keep your costs down. We fabricate custom ductwork at our shop and choose to work with thicker-grade metal. This ensures our ductwork is tight-fitting with a great seal and reduces vibration and noise.
