What are the different types of heat pumps?

Air Source Heat Pump

Air Source Heat Pump

These heat pump systems are best for converting your conventional heating system to a high-performance heat pump system whether you choose to go all-electric or use a hybrid approach by keeping your gas furnace as backup.

Mini-Split Heat Pumps

Mini-Split Heat Pumps

These units offer great retrofit or add-on options for homes, additions, or basements. These units have an outdoor compressor/condenser and an indoor air unit. Mini-splits are ductless options for your home.

Ground Source Heat Pumps

Ground Source Heat Pumps

These heat pumps take advantage of the consistent warmth of the earth to get the highest efficiency out of heat pump technology. Also called geothermal heat pumps, these heat pumps use the existing ductwork in your home.

Top Questions About Heat Pump Installations

How do heat pumps work?

Heat pumps run off electricity and use a refrigerant cycle to transfer heat from different areas. During the summer, the heat pump absorbs heat from inside the home and transfers it to the air outside, just like a traditional air conditioner. In the winter, the cycle is reversed, and heat energy is extracted from the outside air (yes, even when it’s cold out, heat pumps can still extract heat). These cycles are all controlled by the pressure of the refrigerant in the system.

Do heat pumps work in cold climates?

Yes! In fact, the four countries in Europe with the highest number of heat pump installations per 1,000 households in 2022 were Finland, Norway, Sweden, and Estonia. These countries also have some of the coldest winters in Europe. That being said, you do need to install the correct heat pump and install it properly to enjoy comfortable temps inside when the outside temps drop below freezing.

Namaste Solar’s Most Recent Google Reviews

I cant say enough about Namaste Solar. They were with us every step of the way. They carefully evaluated our available sun exposure and provided a realistic timeline for a financial breakeven point. In our case, about 13 years assuming we could offset 75% of our needs with solar. Their engineers evaluated our roof and made design recommendations to support the weight of the panels. These improvements were done by Namaste at the time of install. The first attempt at install had to be delayed as the installer noted atypical roof deterioration and recommended we have that evaluated before install to avoid having to remove the panels for a new roof. At this point, the panels were on the roof and had to be reloaded onto the truck. Our shingle manufacturer agreed that the roof was failing (not from hail damage) and replaced the roof. The second attempt at instal went smoothly and we are up and running. Technical support to get the monitoring system running was excellent. A technician came to our home, installed a wireless extender (at no additional charge), and made sure I could operate the system. Namaste employees were extremely, friendly, helpful, competent and professional in every way. I recommend them highly.
Namaste was so easy to work with. They were professional, on schedule, made everything understandable. We are so happy to have reduced electricity bills and to be contributing to carbon reduction for our city and the planet!
I chose Namaste Solar because they’re a worker owned company. I figured that if people have a stake in the company they work for, they’ll do a good job. With the solar panels installed, they not only did a good job, but an excellent job.
