Heat Pumps Vancouver, BC

Investing in home comfort with the purchase of a heat pump is a great choice for anyone living in the Lower Mainland and Vancouver areas. A heat pump is perfectly capable of withstanding the year-round moderate temperatures of Vancouver, BC. Heat Pumps from Milani will give you all-year performance and comfort by heating or cooling your home according to your needs. They're the perfect solution to complete comfort in the home.

 

 

How A Heat Pump Works

The feature that makes heat pumps so well-suited to the Vancouver climate is their ability to move heat from outside to your home's interior on demand. When you want to cool your home, the heat pump collects the heat from inside your home and moves it outside. This process is carried out by a little device called a reversing valve that switches the cycle back and forth. Heaters and air conditioners are single-function units, but a heat pump's reversing valve allows it to act like two units in one convenient package.

Even if you have a heat pump installed, you will still require a unit called an air handler. This device contains the blower motor that forces the air into you home. More importantly, it returns the air to the unit for filtering. This ensures that the air inside your home is clean and comfortable.

Milani carries a broad selection of heat pumps for Vancouver homes from a variety of popular manufacturers, such as:

  • Lennox
  • Amana
  • Carrier
  • York
  • Rheem

 

Milani's home comfort professionals can help you find the right heat pump for your home by making recommendations based on your needs. Depending on your home and the installation location, we've noticed that some brands have certain advantages over their competitors, especially in the Vancouver climate. It's a good idea to carefully consider your home comfort needs with a professional who is able to provide you with a heat loss and gain calculation and make recommendations on the best possible product.

What to Consider when Buying a Heat Pump

Here are a handful of the things that you need to consider before you buy a heat pump and have it installed:

  • How you use your current home comfort systems
  • How warm or cool you like the temperature in your home to be
  • How long you plan to stay in your current home
  • Pockets of cold or hot air inside your home
  • Plans to remodel your home or make additions
  • How badly you suffer from allergies
  • How much money you're willing to spend
  • Your sensitivity to your environment
  • Your ideal air temperature
  • The presence and condition of existing ducting and its ability to handle a heat pump

 

A specialist at Milani in Vancouver, BC will be able to meet with you to take a look at your home and talk about these issues. This lets us get a better idea of what will work for you and make appropriate recommendations, but only after we perform a comprehensive engineering analysis on your home.
