Is your heat pump system ready to take on the brutal Chicago winters, as well as the warm, muggy summers? If your heat pump is aging and frequently breaking down, it could be on its last legs, and you should consider upgrading to a new, energy-efficient system.
If you want to learn more about heat pumps or are looking to replace your current HVAC system, then talk to Ravinia Plumbing, Sewer, Heating & Electric about heat pump installation services in Chicago’s North Shore and Chicago’s Northwest suburbs. We can answer any questions you may have and find the perfect heat pump for your home.
Heat pumps are growing in popularity in the Chicago area – and for good reason. They are an incredibly efficient and environmentally friendly HVAC system that provides both heating and cooling for year-round comfort. Some of the benefits of installing a heat pump in your home include:
Unlike traditional heating systems, heat pumps do not create heat by burning fuel. When in heat mode, heat pumps capture energy from outdoor air and transfer the heat into your home through refrigerant. In the summer, the process is reversed to cool your home. The circulating refrigerant removes heat from indoor air which is transferred to the outside.
This process reduces energy usage significantly. Contemporary models can be 50% more efficient compared to traditional furnaces because they only use electricity and do not consume natural gas or other fossil fuels.
For many homeowners, heat pumps can completely replace their air conditioner and supplement a natural gas furnace. Manufacturers continue to design heat pump systems that are not only efficient but perform far more effectively in cold climates like Chicago.
For families focused on reducing their carbon footprint, heat pumps are one of the most environmentally friendly HVAC systems on the market. Since heat pumps do not burn natural gas like conventional furnaces, installing a forced air heat pump can significantly reduce carbon emissions.
Federal income tax credits are available through 2032 when you purchase a heat pump for your home. The tax credit covers 30 percent of the cost of a heat pump, with a maximum credit of $2,000.
When your heating and cooling systems break down, you need to replace your unit as fast as possible. However, we understand buying a new HVAC system is a significant financial investment, which is why we offer financing for our customers.

The best way to keep your new heat pump running efficiently and preventing breakdowns is with regular maintenance services. Since heat pumps operate year-round, they need tune-up services twice a year. During a maintenance visit, a technician will inspect the unit, clean necessary components and look for any minor issues that need attention.
