Advances in Heat Pump Technology

heat pump with catHeat pump technology has come a long way in the past couple of years; originally designed for use in more temperate climates, heat pumps used in Maine have long been considered useful to supplement a home’s heat, but unreliable on the coldest days of the year.

In cold climates, heat pumps can experience a decrease in pressure and refrigerant flow rate, thereby decreasing operational capacity. However, Mitsubishi has addressed these performance issues in their new Hyper Heat heat pumps, which offer higher heating speeds at lower outdoor temperatures and the ability to couple multiple indoor units with a single compressor on the exterior of your home. Still highly efficient and environmentally friendly, these new systems perform well in extremely cold climates.

Heat pumps offer a wide range of benefits – they can help you to reduce or eliminate your home’s carbon footprint, they are simple to use and easy to maintain, and they cost very little run – typical homeowners can offset 300 gallons of oil per heating season by adding a heat pump.

Below, we’ve gathered some information on Mitsubishi heat pumps. Are you wondering if heat pumps are a good choice for your home heating needs? Set up a free in-home assessment with one of our Energy Advisers by calling or emailing us today!

Blizzard 2015: Get Your Heating System Prepared!

The National Weather Service is reporting that this week’s snow storm may be one of the biggest on record for the east coast! Are you prepared? We talked to ReVision Heat’s Operations Manager Mike Salvas about what all of us should be doing to keep our heat working and safe in a blizzard. Here’s what he had to say:

GET PREPARED

First things first, make sure all of your carbon monoxide detectors have batteries, especially if you have natural gas heat. If the power goes out, you could have a buildup of exhaust or gas in the house, so please make sure you test all of your detectors (including smoke) and change the batteries if necessary. (more…)
