Heat Pumps

Heat pump service.

Broadley's Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning is experienced in the service, repair, and installation of heat pumps in Marmora, NJ, 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 oil or gas 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 Broadley's Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning 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.

“Our experience with Broadley's has been exceptional. Our technical rep Mark spent more than a year consulting with us to design our heat pump system to replace our 30+ year old gas fired forced air heating and air conditioning system. We also replaced our gas fired hot water heater with an electric water heater. The installation team headed by Don did a wonderful, professional install. The ceiling cassettes we selected function better than we expected and look great. The install team were all courteous and professional. We recommend Broadley's unconditionally for your plumbing, heating and air conditioning needs.”

“I’ve been using Broadley’s for over 40 years. The service has always been exceptional. Today (Aug 9) I noticed a problem. I called and spoke to Angel. The service rep Walt, called me about 30 minutes later to tell me he was on his way.
Walt was great. Figured out the issue in minutes. Fixed it. He then checked my other unit to make sure there were no issues.
Would not use anyone else.”
