Schedule Heat Pump Installation & Replacement in Cincinnati, OH
Our team at Five Star Heating & Cooling Cincinnati offers heat pump installation and replacement year-round in Southwest Ohio. Because heat pumps give homeowners crisp cool air during the hot months of summer and nice warm heated air during the winter, they aren’t merely an alternative for the traditional gas or electric furnace; they can also replace a traditional air conditioning system. What makes this possible?
An A/C extracts the hot air from your home and blows it outside, which is how it’s able to cool your home. On the other hand, heat pumps, “pump” in cool air or warm air, depending on your needs. This ability to alternate is one of the biggest benefits of owning a heat pump. This single HVAC unit can perform both Heating and Cooling, which is what makes them so popular.

4 Types of Heat Pumps
At Five Star Heating & Cooling, we prioritize having a selection of quality equipment from industry-leading manufacturers such as Amana®, Lennox®, Goodman®, Rheem®, and more. Learn more about some of the top manufacturers in the HVAC industry.
Ducted Air-Source Heat Pumps
The most common type of heat pump is the air-source heat pump, which transfers heat between your house and the outside air. Today’s heat pump can reduce your electricity use for heating by approximately 50% compared to electric resistance heating such as furnaces and baseboard heaters. High-efficiency heat pumps also dehumidify better than standard central air conditioners, resulting in less energy usage and more cooling comfort in the summer months.
Ductless Air-Source Heat Pumps
For homes without ducts, air-source heat pumps are also available in a ductless version called a mini-split heat pump. In addition, a particular type of air-source heat pump called a “reverse cycle chiller” generates hot and cold water rather than air, allowing it to be used with radiant floor heating systems in heating mode.
Geothermal Heat Pumps
Geothermal (ground-source or water-source) heat pumps reach higher efficiencies by transferring heat between your house and the ground or a nearby water source. Although they cost more to install, geothermal heat pumps have low operating costs because they take advantage of relatively constant ground or water temperatures.
Absorption Heat Pumps
A relatively new type of heat pump for residential systems is the absorption heat pump (AHP), also called a gas-fired heat pump. Absorption heat pumps use heat or thermal energy as their energy source, and can be driven with a wide variety of heat sources such as combustion of natural gas, steam solar-heated water, air or geothermal-heated water, and therefore are different from compression heat pumps that are driven by mechanical energy. AHPs are more complex and require larger units compared to compression heat pumps. The lower electricity demand of such heat pumps is related to liquid pumping only.
