Heat pumps are an energy-efficient alternative to air conditioners and furnaces to both heat and cool your home in one unit. The professional, factory-trained technicians at Day & Night Mechanical Solutions are your Denver expert professionals for heat pump installation, repair, and service.
Heat pumps provide cool air in the hot Denver summers and can keep your home warm during the cold winters and are an energy-efficient way to heat and cool homes. In fact, according to the U.S. Department of Energy, depending on the type of heat pump you select, efficiencies can exceed up to 60%.
If you’re looking to replace an aging heating or cooling system, heat pumps may be your best option to keep your home comfortable all year long. If you are looking to install a heat pump, need routine service to keep your heat pump running efficiently, or you’re experiencing problems, Day & Night Mechanical Solutions are your Denver-based experts for installation, service, and repair.
Heat Pump vs. Air Conditioner
When comparing a heat pump vs. HVAC unit, it can be difficult to tell the difference by looking at the units themselves. Each unit also operates similarly when in cooling mode. Both use compressed refrigerant to collect heat from inside your home and disperse it outside to cool your home.
The big difference between a heat pump vs. HVAC unit is when it comes to heating your home. Air conditioners don’t provide a heating mode, but heat pumps can. A valve reverses the process, absorbing heat energy from the air outside even in exceptionally cold temperatures, transferring it inside to warm your home.
While an AC unit is typically paired with a furnace to handle heating and cooling, a heat pump can handle both.
When installing a heat pump, it’s critical to choose the right size. If your heat pump is too small for the square footage it is heating or cooling, it can struggle to keep your home temperate. If it’s too big, you’ll waste energy and it will cycle on and off more frequently, not only increasing its wear and tear but also hiking up your electric bill.

Heat pumps are fairly low maintenance, although they do need the occasional tune-up or routine servicing to keep them running smoothly. According to The U.S. Department of Energy, a poorly maintained heat pump can cost you as much as 25% more on your energy costs compared to a unit that receives regular service.
We recommend having your heat pump serviced at least once a year by a trained professional. At Day & Night Mechanical Solutions, we perform an annual inspection, cleaning, and tune-up including:
Inspecting all components of your heat pump
Checking filters, blowers, and coils for dirt or obstructions
Checking for refrigerant leaks
Ensuring you have the right refrigerant charge
Cleaning and lubricating motors
Since heat pumps both heat and cool your home, many homeowners choose to schedule routine service twice a year in the spring and fall. Ask us about our year-round maintenance program.
