Heritage® heat pump

At Universal Plumbing and Heating we carry the names you trust to beat the toughest heat spell. As an added bonus, your air conditioning unit will also remove the humidity from your indoor environment for an added degree of comfort.

Not sure if you should repair or replace? Well, consider this: If you’re operating an inefficient system that breaks down a lot, it’s likely that it’s going to break down again. That means more expensive emergency service calls or possible damage to the other components of your heating and cooling system.

Also consider the ongoing cost factor. You could save up to 60% on your energy bills with new high-efficiency equipment. You see, even if your air conditioner is only a few years old, it could be terribly inefficient by today’s energy efficiency standards. Installing a new, high-efficiency cooling system can actually pay for itself in energy savings within a relatively short time.

American Standard Heat Pumps

A heat pump does the job of an air conditioner and a furnace. Unlike a furnace, it doesn’t burn fuel to create heat. It uses electricity to keep your home warm in the winter, cool in the summer, and comfortable all year round.

American Standard’s Heritage® heat pump family offers exclusive comfort technology and a range of options to give you the most quiet, efficient and comfortable home heating and cooling you’ve ever experienced.

If you want your home to be perfectly warm in the winter and perfectly cool in the summer, you need an American Standard heat pump. In the winter, the Heritage heat pump captures the heat that is always present in the outside air – even in the coldest of weather – and pumps it into your home.

In the summer, it’s an air conditioner, pulling the heat out of your home and releasing it outdoors.

What is HVAC?

Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning

HVAC stands for “heating, ventilating, and air conditioning”. HVAC is widely known as climate control today. This system is employed in skyscrapers, office spaces and widely used in marine systems(aquariums) where the temperature and humidity has to be maintained at a constant level. HVAC systems work based on the principles of thermodynamics, fluid mechanics and heat transfer. Though HVAC refers to heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning, all the three serves the same purpose of thermal comfort and indoor air quality. The HVAC systems are very popular because of its easy installation, low maintenance and low operating costs.

We will also help you think carefully through what air quality and moisture control components to include, particularly if anyone in your family has allergies, respiratory or health issues.

Furnace, AC and Air Quality Installation

Even the best HVAC systems may fail if installed improperly, so who you choose for the installation of your new home comfort system has a significant impact on its operation and your indoor comfort. In fact, installation quality could have a much greater impact on your home comfort than the equipment itself. Depending on the complexity of the project, our professional HVAC installation crews can typically have your new system(s) installed in just one day.
