Types of Heat Pumps
There are 4 different types of heat pumps to choose from:
- Air Source:
- Water Source
Heat Pump Installation
An air-source heat pump absorbs and moves heat. In the summer the heat pump will take the heat from inside your home and pump it back outside. And in the winter it does the same process, except it pushes out the cold air this time.
A water-source heat pump will only work if you have a nearby water source such as a well. It will extract and push out heat or cool air from the water pipes.
A geothermal heat pump requires piping filled with water to be installed under the home. These pipes will use the Earth’s natural temperature to heat or cool the water which will eventually make it to the surface of your heat pump. It will then heat or cool the air and push it into your home.
A mini-split system will work in combination with a furnace or boiler. The heat pump will work during milder temperatures, and the furnace/boiler will kick in if it gets too cold for the heat pump to work efficiently.

Very personable and patient!Both technicians that came to our home were great! They were very personable, and very patient. My mother in-law has a hard time with her English, as it is her second language, but they were both very patient with her, and made sure she understood everything that needed to be done. On their customer service alone I would recommend this company. We live in an old 1980's trailer which made it hard to find parts needed to fix our heating system, but they did all the research they could to try and find the parts needed. I am so glad I decided to call Mainstream Electric and will continue to use their services in the future.
