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

  • “I contacted American Mechanical upon returning home after a year overseas and found my plumbing (among other things) to be in complete disarray. It was not an emergency but definitely a quality of life issue and they made me their first available appointment and worked within my schedule. Sean was my specialist and he assessed and fixed everything in less than a few hours. He was also extremely helpful in providing me with more information regarding the other problems going on in my home (HVAC/Electrical). I am looking forward to my next consult with American Mechanical to address these as well! In my experience it’s been hard to find honest and selfless companies who aren’t out to rip you off or take advantage of the homeowners ignorance with maintenance problems – and that is the complete opposite of what I experienced with this company. So thank you for allowing me to take a bath finally and making my transition back home less stressful.” - Anonymous
  • “Rich and Dylan did an amazing job with our plumbing issue. Professional, spot on technicians. These two gentlemen had our yard dug up, old sewage system out, new system in place with two new clean outs, sealed, tested and covered back up amazingly fast. Not only did they fix our major problems, Rich gave us some sound advice, fixed out outside faucet, and was the most professional plumber I have ever met. We couldn’t have asked for a better duo and if we ever run into a plumbing issue again American Mechanical will be the first people I call requesting Rich and Dylan for our work. Thanks again for everything and continue the great work.” - Mike P.
  • “Yesterday four gas leaks were discovered on the line to the generator. It was installed by your firm several years ago. The response by you and by Virginia Natural Gas was just fabulous! I must compliment you on your employee Chris C.. He arrived about 20 minutes after our call. He explained the situation to us in a way that two old ladies could understand, repaired the pipes and made sure we understood the situation. We were more than pleased with him and feel he should be commended. Thank you for your prompt service!!” - Carol Lee F.
  • “From job scoping to planning to installation to final testing for a new heat pump installation as part of an older home renovation without a system, the job was truly pleasing. The initial planning (Mike H.) clearly identified needs, options, and costs of a top-value unit. The installation by Tony J. and Taylor started as planned, went much quicker than expected, and caused minimal intrusion and interference for the occupants. In particular, Tony’s professional knowledge, communication skills, and truly caring attitude through numerous emergency challenges made the customer confident in the right company choice. During start-up and final testing Manny not only worked the system to peak operational performance but also intelligently answered numerous customer questions. The price was reasonable for a top-rated product suitable to the job and a truly professional team effort.” - George T.
  • “This letter of recommendation is in regards to Jason Gay of American Mechanical and the outstanding work that he did in our home on Tuesday, October 30, 2018. We appreciated that Jason gave us advance notice for his timely arrival. Throughout his time here, he was friendly and courteous, working tirelessly in a tiny bathroom. In tackling the installation of the ceiling fan, he needed to cut out a portion of the ceiling to make room for a larger size fan than what was there previously. This meant that he was dealing with very old, loose, and extremely messy insulation and plenty of dust (plus the fact that he was allergic to our cats). Yet Jason never wavered or complained, but worked steadily and efficiently in getting the job done. After installing the fan, he proceeded to replace a 40 year old light fixture with a new one. Then he put in a new GFCI outlet and replaced some switches. We were very impressed with his work and he did an exceptional job. One more reason that we were very pleased, Jason left the bathroom meticulously clean. That was a pleasant surprise and very much appreciated. In every way, Jason did remarkable work for us. We could not have been happier with his service and we would highly recommend him to others.” - Mr. & Mrs. Jennings
  • “Very timely and professional. I couldn’t be more pleased. American Mechanical and its employees give you the impression that there is still somebody left in this United States who appreciates the value of good work and quality customer service. Very refreshing to deal with a company like that.” - P. M. Bruening Jr.
  • “They are the best team ever. They care about everything. They make sure it is done right and call you to let you know that they are coming. I could not say enough about this team and their company. They are awesome and they are there when you need them no matter.” - K. Handy
  • “On August 22, 2018 , after notifying Dominion Energy that I again had a Quest water pipe break, I contacted American Mechanical office seeking scheduled repair service from a company I definitely trust in terms of quality workmanship and actual caring about its customers. I was out of town to attend a granddaughter’s wedding when the leak was discovered, but did arrange for the water to be turned off, and an appointment for August 24 to meet with one of your skilled plumbers. A repair appointment was arranged for the upcoming Monday and two diligent, determined Company employees arrived to tackle what turned out to be a treacherous task (Dylan and Kelvin I believe…it has been awhile and the reason this letter is in such arears has to do with two unexpected family deaths that occurred during this time frame). The task was quite a challenge and a host of other employees turned out to assist…it was almost virtual brotherhood! Joel (I believe) headed up the job and was a fine leader! Honestly, I have yet to see such perseverance in August’s boiling temperatures! As I expected, the job was efficiently and expeditiously completed. And needless to say, I remain a loyal, satisfied customer. Mr. Cornett, I could go on and on…well, you know I can, you’ve read my letters before. But I do have to say thank you again (I wish I knew everyone’s name) to you and your amazing crew at American Mechanical.” - Carolyn
  • “Kevin and Dennis are expert HVAC mechanics and did an outstanding job installing new duct work and an HVAC unit. My wife and I were impressed by their neatness and cleanliness, you would be hard pressed to find a scrap or speck of trash after they left. They were far superior in workmanship and communications over our old company. We are glad that we made the switch to a very professional and skilled company. You will be lucky if you choose this company and have Kevin and Dennis available to do your work.” - John F.
