Geothermal Heat Pump Professionals

By tapping into the geothermal energy beneath your home, you can reduce the amount of energy you use from traditional power sources and lower your overall power bill. Keep in mind that these systems are complicated, and a lack of professional maintenance often leads to total heat pump system failure.

Pro-Tech Heating & Cooling’s Grand Rapids heat pump services offer homeowners and businesses alike an affordable method to keep heating and cooling costs down. We offer a wide variety of services, from regular checkups and general maintenance to expert repair and replacement. Our family-owned company partners with reputable and qualified manufacturers, such as ClimateMaster, and pairs their high-quality heat pumps with expert installation and maintenance from our technicians.

How Do Heat Pumps Work?

Put simply, a heat pump moves heat from one location to another. In the heating mode, a heat pump extracts heat from the outside air, even in cold conditions, and transfers it indoors. Conversely, when cooling is desired, the process reverses, and the heat pump moves indoor heat outside.

This process is facilitated by the refrigeration cycle, which involves a refrigerant – a substance with a low boiling point. The cycle starts with the refrigerant absorbing heat from the environment in an evaporator coil, causing it to evaporate. Next, this vapor is compressed by the compressor, increasing its temperature and pressure. The hot vapor then travels through a condenser coil, where it releases its heat into the target space (inside the house for heating or outside for cooling). As the refrigerant loses heat, it condenses back into a liquid. This liquid is then passed through an expansion valve, reducing its pressure and temperature and making it ready to absorb heat again in the evaporator, continuing the cycle.

The versatility of heat pumps lies in their ability to reverse the flow of refrigerant, allowing for both heating and cooling from the same system. This is typically achieved by incorporating a reversing valve that changes the direction of the refrigerant flow based on the desired mode of operation. Heat pumps are also environmentally friendly, as they reduce the reliance on fossil fuels and decrease greenhouse gas emissions.

If you want to lower the cost of your energy bill without losing money on faulty solutions, the professionals at Pro-Tech remain the best choice. Call (616) 303-7436 or contact us online to learn more about what geothermal heat pumps can do for your home or business today.
