Wonder About Heat Pumps

Facts About Heat Pump Installation

What is a heat pump?

A heat pump is an energy-efficient HVAC system that both heats and cools your home by transferring heat rather than generating it. In winter, it extracts heat from the outdoor air to warm your home. In summer, it removes heat from your home and releases it outside. By moving heat instead of creating it, heat pumps are highly efficient and can significantly reduce energy costs compared to traditional systems.

Can I add a heat pump to an existing furnace?

Yes, you can add a heat pump to an existing furnace, but it’s not the best idea. You won’t be eligible for any rebates, and the system will probably work at a much lower efficiency compared to a fully matched setup.

For the best results and to qualify for those plentiful rebates, you’re better off installing a complete heat pump system with a new electric air handler or high-efficiency gas furnace that’s designed to work hand-in-hand with your heat pump.

Do heat pumps make the house cold?

No, heat pumps do not make your house cold. In fact, they provide more even heating and cooling compared to traditional systems. This is because heat pumps operate with longer run times and a lower temperature output, resulting in a more consistent and comfortable indoor environment. The increased air circulation helps eliminate cold spots and temperature fluctuations often associated with conventional heating methods.

What kind of heat pump can I get?

If you have ductwork (usually paired with a furnace and central air conditioner), the heat pump for you will be likely the “air source” aka ducted heat pump. If you have no ductwork, ductless minisplits are likely the path.

Do heat pumps use less energy?

Yes, heat pumps can reduce your total energy consumption by 25-30% compared to traditional HVAC systems. However, it’s important to keep in mind that different forms of energy have varying costs.

While heat pumps are highly efficient, the savings you see on your utility bills will depend on factors like electricity and natural gas prices in your area. In most cases, the long-term energy savings from a heat pump will outweigh the initial installation costs, especially when you factor in available rebates and incentives.

Are all heat pumps created equal?

No, heat pumps come in three or four tiers. Budget models are typically 14-15 SEER, mid-range heat pumps are usually two-stage, around 17 SEER, and can electrify about 50% of your heating. Top-end heat pumps, 20 SEER and above, usually with an inverter compressor, can electrify up to 100% of your heating needs.


What happens to my furnace?

Most heat pump installations are fully matched systems that replace your existing HVAC equipment entirely. When you install a new heat pump system, you’ll usually get an electric air handler or a high-efficiency gas furnace that serves as a backup heating source during extremely cold temperatures.


Do heat pumps work in Colorado?

Yes, heat pumps work well in Colorado, thanks to advancements in modern technology. These improvements have made heat pumps a practical and efficient choice for homeowners in the state. At UniColorado, we have been successfully installing heat pumps for over a decade, gaining valuable real-world experience in the process. Our track record demonstrates that heat pumps are indeed a viable option for Colorado’s climate.

Best heat pump for Colorado

Air source heat pumps are usually the best choice for Colorado homes. They efficiently extract heat from the outside air, even in sub zero temperatures, to keep your home comfortable year-round. Air source heat pumps are available in ducted and ductless configurations which means the majority of homes in Colorado are compatible with these systems.

What are the best brands of heat pumps?

everal top brands offer high-quality heat pumps suitable for Colorado’s climate:

Mitsubishi – Known for their patent-protected technology that ensures efficient operation in all temperatures.

Carrier – Renowned for their quality and credited with inventing modern air conditioning.

American Standard/Trane – Recognized for their simplified equipment design and rugged construction.

Bosch – A newcomer to the heat pump market, offering impressive technology.

Other notable brands include Lennox. Consult with a professional HVAC contractor like UniColorado to determine the best option for your specific needs and budget.

Heat pump installation in Denver

Installing a heat pump in Denver is not only possible but also a smart choice for homeowners looking to save money and increase their home’s energy efficiency. Many rebates and incentives are available for heat pump installations in the area, making the transition even more attractive.

UniColorado, with their extensive experience in heat pump installations, can help you navigate the rebate process. We will handle the necessary paperwork on your behalf and provide most rebates upfront, as discounts. This service simplifies the installation process and helps you maximize your savings.

What is backup heating (in heat pumps)?

For ducted heat pump systems, backup heating is typically provided by either a gas furnace or an electric air handler with resistance heaters. These secondary heating sources kick in when the heat pump alone can’t keep up with the heating demand during extremely cold temperatures (below 0).

For ductless minisplit systems, properly designed ductless heat pump systems often do not require backup heating.

Are heat pumps more expensive?

Heat pumps have a higher upfront cost compared to traditional HVAC systems. However, CO residents can take advantage of rebates and incentives like Denver CARE, Xcel Rebates, and Federal & State tax credits to offset the initial investment. Plus, heat pumps are energy-efficient, leading to significant savings on energy bills over time.

Do I need backup heating for a heat pump?

Backup heating is usually recommended for ducted systems. While modern heat pumps are designed to operate efficiently in cold climates, all heat pumps will eventually shut off at a certain low temperature threshold (called thermal lockout or switchover point) or when they need to defrost. In these situations, a backup heating source ensures your home remains comfortable. With a properly designed system, you can minimize the use of expensive resistance backup heating. In dual fuel systems (heat pump paired with a gas furnace), you also have the flexibility to choose the most cost-effective fuel source based on current prices.

The Details?

What is a Heat Pump?

In short, an air conditioning outdoor unit that can also produce heat using electricity. A more technical explanation of a heat pump would define it as a type of HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) system that works by transferring heat from one place to another, rather than generating heat like a traditional furnace.

During the cooling mode, a heat pump absorbs heat from the inside of the building and transfers it outside. This process cools the air inside the building.

During the heating mode, a heat pump absorbs heat from the outside air or ground and transfers it inside the building. This process warms the air inside the building.

Ducted Heat Pump

An air source heat pump, also known as a ducted, central or forced-air heat pump, is a great choice for retrofitting in homes with existing forced-air systems. Utilizing the existing ductwork system, these systems use an air handler or high efficiency gas furnace to distribute the conditioned air.

Higher-end heat pump models that meet certain requirements are usually referred to as cold climate heat pumps, which remain effective in heating mode in extremely cold weather.

Ductless Heat Pump

A ductless heat pump, also known as a mini-split, wall-mounted, or non-ducted heat pump, is an excellent option for homes without existing ductwork. These fully electric systems operate independently of ducts, using individual units installed in various rooms to distribute conditioned air.

UniColorado offers cold climate & regular minisplit systems; due to the minimal cost difference, most customers choose to get a cold-climate minisplit system.
