Many homes and businesses in Pennsylvania have distinct air conditioning and heating systems, but there is a trend toward heat pumps, which can both heat and cool. Through professional heat pump installation, you can enjoy a highly efficient and singular HVAC system that cools your home or business during summer and heats it during winter.
How Heat Pumps Work
While furnaces generate heat, air conditioners operate by transferring heat energy, such as to the ambient air. Heat pumps function this way as well but are able to transfer in both directions. In other words, they can transfer heat energy from your living space in summer and into it in winter. Heat pumps are typically configured like split central air conditioning systems. There is an outdoor unit that contains a compressor, an indoor air handler, and ductwork used to distribute the conditioned air.

We Install Different Types of Heat Pumps
Timothy Off provides a full range of heat pump installation services. We install air-sourced heat pumps, geothermal systems, and ductless mini splits, and we install the latest models from all the top brands, including Bosch, Trane, and Mitsubishi.
Nothing stops a Trane! You’re likely familiar with that slogan because Trane is among the most trusted names in the HVAC industry. Trane has a reputation for innovating some of the most efficient and long-lasting heat pumps on the market. Timothy Off is proud to be a qualified Trane HVAC dealer, and our experts can help you pick the perfect Trane model for your home or business.
It’s quite common in our region for homes and businesses to have ductwork through which cooled and heated air is distributed. An alternative is the ductless mini split. A mini split is essentially a heat pump with an outdoor unit and an indoor unit. You can also have multiple indoor units. Those units are typically mounted on a wall or ceiling and blow the conditioned air directly into the living spaces. Mitsubishi is the top mini split brand, and we’re a Preferred Mitsubishi Electric Diamond Contractor, which means that you get a 12-year factory warranty when you purchase through us.
Geothermal heat pump installation is superior to traditional air-sourced configurations because the earth has more heat energy potential. One of the issues with traditional air-sourced heat pumps is that they are less efficient in very cold weather due to the lack of heat energy, but the ground remains a consistent temperature throughout the year. Geothermal systems do cost more to install, but you’ll typically recoup that investment because the heat pump can last 20 years or more and the loop system installed in the ground can last 50 years or more. Timothy Off has experts who are well versed in planning geothermal systems based on the unique needs of a building and landscape.
Bosch is among the most respected names in heat pumps, and their innovations have been pivotal in these technologies becoming more commonplace in colder regions like ours. All of the heat pumps made by Bosch are variable speed, and the brand has recently introduced a modulating inverter drive that is able to match the heating and cooling load in precise 1% increments. Bosch heat pumps are also among the quietest on the market, and Bosch offers an industry-leading warranty as well.
Ongoing Maintenance for Your Heat Pump
Timothy Off strongly encourages our customers to protect their investments through routine maintenance. Even though a heat pump is a singular system, it still requires seasonal maintenance twice a year. We also offer a maintenance plan that will help you save money and keep your heat pump on a schedule. Our plan includes two seasonal appointments during which we’ll inspect your equipment, clean it, and perform a tune-up. That tune-up will ensure that your system runs at peak performance and thus lower your month-to-month costs. It will also extend the life of your equipment.
