Heat Pump Installation & Repair

Heat Pump Installation & Repair

Expert Virginia Beach Heating & Cooling Technicians

Heat pumps are a safe and economical way to control the temperature in your home. Consisting of two units—one indoor unit and one outdoor—heat pumps are an alternative to traditional heating and cooling methods, like a gas or electric furnace. These systems warm your home through the transfer of heat from the air, ground, or water, instead of through the burning of fuel, wood, gas, or oil. The outdoor unit absorbs heat and distributes it through the indoor unit and into your Virginia Beach home.

What Are the Benefits of Heat Pumps?

Year-Round Versatility

The same heat pump can be used for both heating and cooling. When in heating mode, the heat pump pulls warm air from outside the home and transfers it to the interior—keeping you and your family warm. In the summer, you can switch the pump into air conditioning mode to cool the inside of the house. The pump reverses its process and extracts heat from inside the home to be released outside. Heat pumps with a programmable thermostat are available to keep your home at a comfortable temperature year-round.

Reduced Risk of Fire Hazards

Unlike a furnace heater or wood-burning stove, a heat pump does not have any hot surfaces that can potentially burn a child or pet by accident. The pump does not use combustion to generate its heat, so there are no open flames. Heat pumps are safe to use overnight or when the home is unattended.

Better Air Quality

Heat pumps do not dry out the air inside your home like a conventional heater, so there is no need for a humidifier. Because no oxygen is needed for combustion, the room will not become stuffy as the heat pump runs, and you can use a heat pump to circulate air in the home without heating or cooling it.

A filter inside the pump removes pollutants from the air before releasing it back into its designated room or area. This makes heat pumps especially beneficial for people who suffer from allergies, asthma, or other respiratory problems.

Improved Energy Efficiency

Heat pumps are three to four times more efficient than oil and gas heaters. Over the course of a year, this can add up to significant savings on your utility bills. Conventional heating systems produce less than one kilowatt of heating for every kilowatt of energy they consume. Modern heat pumps can generate at least three kilowatts of heating power per kilowatt of energy input.

Less Waste Produced

No waste products are created when a heat pump transfers warmth from one location to another. The only energy that is required to operate a heat pump is the electricity needed to power the compressor. The refrigerant used in most of today’s heat pumps has been certified as safe for the ozone layer.

Rave Reviews From Happy Customers

  • “Had our Spring HVAC inspection/tune up performed by Trey today. He arrived on time and was very thorough. He spent a lot of time making sure everything was inspected on both of our units to be sure we are ready for a hot summer. He even cleaned out a hornets nest! Yikes! When asking about recommended services, Trey was up front and honest. We did go ahead with one of his recommended items. We are waiting to do the other. I appreciate that the company is willing to replace a customer-supplied part in order to save us some money.” - Nicole C.
  • “Had American Mechanical come to my home for spring HVAC maintenance. Dave Johnson was the HVAC tech who performed the service and was very thorough and knowledgeable in performing the maintenance and offering recommendations. Kim was the dispatcher who set the appointment up for me and was very professional and set up the appointment at my convenience time and with a knowledgeable HVAC tech. We are retired military and would highly recommend American Mechanical to anyone needing quality and professional service.” - Diane Beyer
  • “We had Randy Berry and Kevin Garner and they did a great job. Being a woman it’s important that I don’t feel uncomfortable around them and I didn’t! They got the air duct cleaning done in 3 ½ hours. They are also doggie approved and I don’t trust anyone that my dog doesn’t like!” - Kathy
  • “The team arrived on time, they were very courteous throughout the whole day. Tarps laid down to keep the house clean and they also wore booties on the shoes. Old unit removed and the new one installed is working like a rocket ship. Couldn’t be happier and I highly recommend them. Prices are right on par for a decent Trane system with anyone else out there but the professionalism and workmanship couldn’t be topped. Offered to bring me A/C units and heaters over to the house if I needed them since my old unit was out of commission until install day and brought me a years worth of filters.” - Joseph Y.
  • “Our furnace decided to give out during the Nor’easter this past weekend. My husband called American Mechanical and we were able to have someone come out and assess on Saturday. Although we were tols it could be up to a week for the part to come in on Monday we received a call they had found the part. Dave J. came on Monday afternoon and found we needed an additional part. He went back to the warehouse to get the additional part so that we wouldn’t have to go another night without heat. He was very professional and made every effort to make sure we were comfortable. We had been using another small HVAC company and were not pleased. American Mechanical is our new HVAC company. Thank you for restoring our heat.” - Gwen
  • “This company is great! I have used them a few times and they impress me each time with their excellent customer service, and honest diagnostics that are explained thoroughly prior to any service repairs with a price quote. I highly recommend – Dave J. for any HVAC services needed. He recently repaired my HVAC system to a quality above my high expectations, and did so while explaining the process and giving me advice to keep the system from having future issues. Five stars to Dave J. and American Mechanical, Incorporated for an excellent job. Highly recommended!” - Joel
  • “You’ve been patient and understanding of our needs and concerns as we progressed from talking about a combi-tankless unit through its installation. While you are probably more accustomed to fielding problems, allow me to offer some compliments. Our experience with American Mechanical has been most unusual. Never before have we worked with a company that seemingly couldn’t do enough to satisfy our requests. Every concern was met with a serious and immediate attempt at solution. Communications were easy and two-way. The gentlemen who made the initial installation (Tony and Bobby) as well as the men who did the later work (Trey and Dave) treated our home like a home, not just another workplace. We enjoyed having them here, and kind of missed them when the work was finished. They did their work artfully – even making a special effort to get the recirculating pump control in an easy to use location. Finally, they did a nice job of cleaning up after each hard day of work. There is a company that advertises that it is “our company for life”. Well, that’s how we feel about American Mechanical after this experience. You played a critical role in creating that commitment. We’ve already called upon your company for a plumbing repair; and we’ll be calling you soon to talk about a whole house generator. We look forward to many years of work together in the future.” - John Stewart
  • “Each time I use American Mechanical the experience gets even better. The text message with the techs picture and background ensures I know who I’m expecting. The tech tracking link shows me where my technician is and exactly when to expect his arrival. The personal attention, explanations, and quality of service of the tech is always outstanding. Kudos for not being satisfied with just doing the same old thing and be willing to continue to improve the customer experience.” - Bruce & Cathy
  • “I want to express my appreciation and satisfaction with the follow-up work David and Randy completed today on my duct system. They were able to quickly and satisfactorily make the necessary repair and add to that, their professional and positive attitude and that makes for an upbeat and pleasant experience. Once again, it was a pleasure doing business with American Mechanical.” - Mike Barrett
