Jeff from West Temp Heating and Cooling did an installation of a new propane furnace, air conditioning unit and a hot water tank.  He and his crew did an excellent job.  Very patient with us when explaining the relatively complicated thermostat.  He will come back next year to do the yearly maintenance which includes a new Hepa furnace filter. Cleaned up after themselves. Totally awesome, very happy with  Jeff and West Temp.

Heat Pump FAQs

Here are some commonly asked questions about heat pumps and our installation services.

For more answers, see the FAQs page or just contact us with your questions.

  • Can heat pumps be used in cold climates?

    Yes, heat pumps can be used in cold climates, although their efficiency may be reduced when temperatures drop below freezing. Some models are specifically designed for use in colder climates and are equipped with features such as a defrost cycle to prevent frost buildup.

  • How do heat pumps compare to traditional HVAC systems?

    Heat pumps are generally considered to be more energy efficient than traditional HVAC systems, which can result in lower energy bills. They can also provide both heating and cooling, which can be more convenient than separate heating and cooling systems.

  • What is the lifespan of a heat pump?

    The lifespan of a heat pump can vary depending on factors such as the quality of the unit, the frequency of maintenance, and the conditions in which it operates. Most heat pumps last between 10 and 15 years.

  • How important is a high SEER rating for a heat pump?

    The SEER rating is an important factor to consider when selecting a heat pump, as it is an indicator of the system’s energy efficiency. A higher SEER rating means that the heat pump can provide more cooling output per unit of electrical energy consumed, which can result in lower energy bills and greater environmental sustainability.

    However, it’s important to note that the SEER rating is just one factor to consider when choosing a heat pump. While the SEER rating is an important consideration when selecting a heat pump, it should be evaluated alongside other factors to ensure that you choose a system that is well-suited to your specific needs and budget.
