Heat Pumps

Energy Saving Heat Pumps

Electric air-source heat pumps are a convenience cost-efficient method to keeping your home set at the perfect comfort level for any temperature. These heat pumps combine indoor and outdoor air temperatures to cool and heat your home as an energy-efficient alternative to traditional furnaces and air conditioning units. Using less energy means lower monthly utility bills. At B&W Heating and Cooling we provide comprehensive evaluations of your current heating and cooling systems and propose best options for your home and budget.

We install and service a variety of heat pump models. Our two most popular models:

Two-Stage Heat Pump – Up To 15 or 17 SEER

To maximize comfort, this two-stage model runs at lower capacity and increases accordingly for temperature rises and drops resulting in a great balance of heating and cooling. When the temperature is warm, it transitions to cooling mode ensuring that balance and comfort. Pairing this module with a heat variable-speed, two-stage gas furnace results in the utmost advantages of a dual fuel system.

13 and 14 SEER Heat Pumps with R410A

SEER is an industry term to rank efficiency, the higher it is – the more efficient. These condenser and coils are leak-tested to assure you of its reliability. These heat pumps radically lower energy bills considering your older system may operate at half of the SEER efficiency.

Air Conditioners

Energy-Efficient Air Conditioners

Our first step is to have a comprehensive analysis of your current heating and cooling system and providing feedback on possible air conditioning options suitable for your home’s needs and budget.

Some of our most popular energy efficient air conditioners:

Two-Stage Air Conditioner – Up To 16 or 18 SEER

The updated aerodynamic fan and air discharge system minimize operating sound leading to the two-speed fan motor operating predominantly on a quieter and lower speed. For the ultimate comfort, two two-stage scroll compressor operates at lower capacity and transitions to higher capacity to accommodate more cooling when the temperature rises.

This two-stage air conditioner model pairs perfectly with either an 80% or 95% AFUE variable-speed, two-stage gas furnace, providing the ideal comfort experience.

Air Conditioner – 14 Up To 15 SEER

This polished and robust cabinet design, with an appliance-grade paint finish is the number one option for air conditioners in the 14 SEER line.
