The above figures are based on fuel and electricity costs as of April 2014. Efficiency values are averages of commonly installed equipment.  An average home is considered to be a 3000ft2 detached house built after 1990 with a total BTU requirement of 85,000,000

*VRF - a Variable Refrigerant Flow heat pump system uses variable speed fans and compressor in order to adjust the output of the system to match demand.  This significantly increases efficiency, and improves comfort in the space.

It is important to be aware that the above performance ratings are based on ideal operating conditions. It is only possible to achieve these levels of efficiency by using industry best practices and following manufacturers installation instructions. “Cutting corners” can drastically reduce the performance of the equipment, and can lead to operation and maintenance issues.

Maintenance

Greg’s car broke down. When he took it to the mechanic he was told the car was out of oil. The mechanic asked him when he last had his car serviced. Greg said, “Never, is that a problem?” The mechanic explained to Greg that cars need love and that manufacturers do not love those who neglect their cars. The result? No warranty coverage and an unnecessarily large bill for Greg. The point here is that heat pumps are much like cars. They require proper maintenance and care to ensure maximum efficiency and a long life. Manufacturers have the right to deny warranty claims if they discover no record of regular maintenance!

Don’t be a Greg. Take care of your heat pump. Have the friendly professionals at Westisle over to your home for a heat pump tune-up and get it done right.

Testimonials

We were very pleased with all aspects of the work done – the initial inspection of the old system by Kyle, the replacing of our heat pump system and the changing of the return air duct in the living room. The work done by Millstone Sheet Metal Ltd. and by your technician Dustin was excellent. The limited height of our crawl space added to the difficulty of the task but they persevered and got the job done and left the area in a clean and tidy condition. Westisle technical and office staff continue to give us excellent service.
