Heat Pump Frequently Asked Questions

Have you been curious about the difference between a heat pump and an air conditioner? They rely on the same technology and look nearly identical side by side. They both rely on refrigerants to heat or cool the home.

They operate the same, but a heat pump can reverse the air conditioning cycle. This reversal allows the heat pump to deliver warm air to the home in winter.

Heat pump systems are common in Richmond, VA. In milder winter climates, heat pumps are the most efficient heating option. They cost very little to operate when the temperature is above 35–40 degrees.

The downside to heat pumps is their performance in very cold weather. They rely on an electric backup heater to help heat in extremely cold temperatures. This auxiliary heater uses a lot of power when activated, which will increase your power bill. Heat pumps are a great heating source in the Richmond climate.

A heat pump will typically have the same life as a central AC. If you buy a quality product from a quality contractor, you should expect 10 to 15 years out of your heat pump. Most of the warranties today cover parts for 10 years.

Preventive maintenance and timely service can help extend the life of your heat pump. If your heat pump is over 10 years old and has serious problems, it may be time to replace your system.

If you’re not sure whether your system needs repairs or a complete replacement, we can help and provide expert advice.

Most residential heat pumps range from around $5,000 to $7,000, though some models may be available for as low as $4,000, and high-end options can cost as much as $14,000.

Many factors can determine the price differences, including the size of the system, its efficiency, and the available comfort features.

If you need a new heat pump system and some flexible financing options, we have you covered.

Most heat pump installations and replacements can be completed in one day. More than 90% of our heat pump replacements are finished in a single day. If we’re installing a heat pump and new ductwork, it can take two to three days.

At F.H. Furr, our skilled installers always work hard and smart to install your heat pump system properly and promptly.

Heat pumps are the most efficient way to heat your home during milder winter weather. The minimum efficiency of today’s heat pumps is 14 SEER. Most older systems we replace are 8 to 12 SEER. In many cases, even the minimum standard is usually a nice improvement for homeowners with older, less-efficient systems.

For those looking for higher efficiency, we install many 15–20 SEER systems. Some ductless heat pumps are incredibly efficient, going as high as 42 SEER.

Ductless heat pump systems are growing in popularity. Also known as mini-splits, these systems don’t use ductwork to distribute air in your home. A ductless system will usually have a unit mounted on the wall that delivers the air to your home. They’re very efficient and quiet.

At F.H. Furr, we install Mitsubishi ductless systems and Carrier ductless systems, having installed many systems in countless unique applications.

Most heat pumps are paired with an electric air handler and an electric heater. This is a traditional setup, with the entire system being electrical.

Heat pumps can also be combined with a gas furnace that’s used as the “air handler.” This is the most efficient heating option. The heat pump will provide heat in milder weather, and the gas furnace will activate when the temperature drops outside.

This allows the system to run the most efficient option at any given time, based on the outdoor temperature.
