Heat pumps can provide reliable climate control that is especially suited to the warm and humid weather in and around Columbus, Georgia. The U.S. Department of Energy recommends heat pumps as an energy-efficient way to manage heating and cooling in warmer regions. Advances in HVAC technology have made these systems even better than before. Here are three key features to look for when installing a new heat pump for your Alabama or Georgia home.

Advanced Compressors

Two-speed heat pump compressors offer greater energy efficiency while ensuring that your system operates at peak performance. Rather than running at full capacity at all times, these compressors can reduce electrical consumption by operating at a lower level during off-peak hours. This can allow you and your family to stay cool and comfortable inside without the wear and tear and added expense that peak performance can entail for your HVAC system. The money saved by upgrading to these advanced compressor options can be used to indulge in some of life’s little pleasures or saved for a rainy day.


Rather than allowing the heat generated by your cooling system to dissipate outdoors, desuperheaters allow you to reclaim that heat and put it to use to heat water inside your home. These devices are designed to work as much as three times more efficiently than the average electric water heater, allowing you to save money on heating and air conditioning costs while enjoying dependable comfort during the hottest days of the year.

Variable-Speed Fan Motors

Indoor blowers and fans are designed to help your heating and cooling system circulate air throughout your living spaces. Outside your home, the fan inside your condenser unit must run to cool down these coils and keep your HVAC system running. Variable-speed motors can increase the energy efficiency of your system while reducing noise levels inside and outside your home. By upgrading to these advanced features, you and your family can enjoy added peace and quiet inside your Georgia or Alabama home.
