Is a Heat Pump a Good Choice for My Long Island, NY Home?

When it comes time to replace or enhance the heating equipment in your Long Island, NY home, if you’re like most of today’s homeowners, the chances are you’ll do some online research before purchasing any new products or systems. Having so much information available is great and can help you gain insight into the benefits of today’s heating equipment, but, by the same token, it can get confusing. The home heating industry has changed a lot since the days of basic furnaces or boilers, and now you have many different, innovative options that can provide you with both warmth and energy savings.

Many people are choosing heat pump systems to keep their homes warm come winter. According to Carrier®, heat pumps are systems that offer extreme versatility by providing heating, cooling and dehumidifying. Depending on the heating needs of your Long Island, NY home, a heat pump can provide you with year-round heating and cooling. Some people choose to install electric powered heat pumps in combination with their oil or gas fueled furnace – and that can mean significant savings on your utility bills.

While there are many different styles of heat pumps to choose from for your Long Island, NY home, most commonly people install a split system. This simply means some of the components of the heat pump are inside your home, and some are outside. Regardless of their configuration, heat pumps work by transferring hot air as opposed to burning fuel inside your home, leading to higher energy efficiency. They’re designed to provide your home with the appropriate levels of heating and cooling, at a price that works within your budget.

At T.F. O’Brien Heating & Cooling, we work hard to meet the heat pump needs of our Long Island, NY customers, as well as the needs of our planet. Because heat pumps function by transferring heat as opposed to burning fuel, they are by nature more efficient – and that makes them better for Mother Nature. You can also rest assured that the refrigerant used in the heat pump models we install is environmentally friendly and non-ozone depleting. Additionally many of the models we sell meet ENERGY STAR guidelines for energy efficiency and provide unprecedented heating efficiency, superior performance and increased home comfort.

Not to mention, there are often tax credits and incentives available on heat pump systems, because of their high efficiency levels. Geothermal heat pumps, for instance, often have several rebates attached to them, both on a state level and through utility companies.

  1. I have a split duct unit for heating and cooling that uses electric. Question: is it cheaper to run the heat on split duct unit (electric) or is it cheaper to use the natural gas heating for my home?

    Everyone gives me a different opnion and can’t find much information online.
    Thank you so much!

  2. I have gas fired, forced air heating with a seperate central air system. I live in Freeport, LI, NY. We, in Freeport produce our own electric so that is realitively inexpensive. Gas from National Grid is as expected. What I would like to know is would a Heat Pump be effective, economic, and how long, roughly, would it take to recoup my investment. The house is two story with a 5′ basement, house is roughly 40′ x 60′.
