Heat Pumps

Heat Pump unit

Coastal Air Plus is experienced in the service, repair, and installation of heat pumps in Surfside Beach, SC, and its surrounding area. A heat pump is a device that transfers heat from one place to another, from indoors to outdoors or from outdoors to indoors. For homes with no access to natural gas, heat pumps offer an efficient and reliable solution for heating and cooling.

How Do Heat Pumps Work?

In the winter, a heat pump works like a heater, extracting heat energy from outside and transferring it inside. In the summer, the process reverses, and it will remove heat from your home and transfer it outside like an air conditioner. Heat pumps do this so well that many people in warmer climates exclusively rely on a heat pump for year-round comfort. For those living in colder climates, they use electric-powered heat pumps in conjunction with their gas or oil furnace resulting in lower heating costs.

Heat pumps work with a series of coils drawing energy from air, water, or the ground. In this way, they are very environmentally friendly and are the most energy-efficient way to heat and cool your home. Heat pumps also work extremely efficiently, because they simply transfer heat, rather than burn fuel to create it. This makes them a greener alternative to traditional gas or oil furnaces. Though you may think you’re unfamiliar with them, they traditionally heat swimming pools and hot tubs, so you most likely have come in contact with them and not even known it.

Different Types of Heat Pumps

There are three types of heat pumps: air-to-air, water source, and geothermal. As mentioned above, they collect their heat from the air, water, and outside-your-home ground and concentrate it for use. Call Coastal Air Plus to discuss the basic differences between these types and which one would work best for you and your home.

Are Heat Pumps Expensive?

Installation costs of heat pumps are higher than with a traditional furnace or air conditioner, but the savings over time in annual energy costs make up for the difference in five to ten years. Performing proper operation and maintenance of your heat pump will also save you money, as you’ll use less energy, thus resulting in less cost. Be sure to ask your HVAC professional for the proper thermostat setting and the indoor pump’s fan operation. Not following the recommended guidelines can inhibit the maximized running of the pump and can degrade the unit itself. Regular maintenance can prevent degradation as well. Consistent filter changing or cleaning is necessary for a well-running heat pump. Seasonal cleaning of coils and fans go a long way in preventing poor energy efficiency that can end up costing you more money. The energy difference between a well-maintained system and a neglected one can be anywhere from 10 to 25 percent.

Heat Pump Replacement in Myrtle Beach, SC 29579

“After looking into different options, I had Coastal Air and Refrigeration quote me to replace my 18 year old heat pump with high-efficiency heat pumps and variable speed air handlers and a heat pump water heater. I chose them to do both jobs. Chris and Richard came out and answered all my questions and made me feel confident in choosing them for the job with their professionalism and knowledge of the product that the rest of the experience would go well. They have exceeded my expectations. The three gentleman that came out to replace my air conditioning and the two gentleman that came out to replace my heat pump were very professional, friendly knowledgeable, and I felt very comfortable with them doing the job and with them in my home. What a great bunch of guys! I am very happy with both systems, it was money well spent. Thank you for making my home very comfortable for years to come! Karen W”

Heat Pump Installation in Myrtle Beach, SC 29572

“I had contracted with Coastal Air & Refrigeration out of Conway, South Carolina to install my new Mitsubishi 23 Seer Mini Split heat pump in my garage as well as a top of the line 20 Seer Trane heat pump HVAC system for my house which both were completed in mid October 2021.

I have to say that I am completely satisfied with all of my interactions with the company sales and technical team. Both units were installed in a matter of hours and I have had no reason to have them return for any adjustments or malfunctions. Another thing I love about Coastal Air & Refrigeration is that I don’t get annoying telemarketing calls trying to sell me more services every week like I did with one of the well known national companies.

Chris Causey is my sales point of contact and Chris is extremely customer focused. He returns calls promptly and he arrives when he says he will come. His proposals were very professional and state-of-the-art. I was given options for four different solutions at my request and ended up choosing the top Trane 20 Seer system. I was able to sign the contract using a Docusign type system. It was a very simple process from start to finish.

Coastal Air & Refrigeration is a small family company and most of their business is in the commercial realm. Their technicians are some of the best I have ever seen. All of the installation was done to the highest standards. Everything is plum and there was no unnecessary holes drilled through my walls or any installation repeats.

It gives me great pleasure to recommend Chris Causey and Coastal Air & Refrigeration.”
