A heat pump is an important part of central heating & cooling systems. It uses the air from outside to heat homes in the winter, as well as cool homes in the summer. A big benefit of a heat pump is that instead of generating heat, it moves it, making it more energy efficient. They are also powered by electricity rather than fuel.

By transporting heat energy, heat pumps move warm air from one place to another. Where this heat energy is moved to depends on the seasons and the task the heat pump is given. In the winter time, the heat pump will extract heat from outside and transfer it into your home. In the summer time, it will reverse directions to act like an air conditioner and remove heat from your home.

Heat pumps are most commonly found in homes in moderate climates like ours. Call Carolina Comfort Air today for questions about heat pumps and to see if a heat pump system is right for you.

Arlington, VA— On January 2, President Obama signed legislation designed to avoid the “fiscal cliff” and keep tax rates from increasing for every American who pays taxes. In addition to its many other tax provisions, the bill retroactively reinstates the 25C tax credits for highly efficient HVAC and water heating equipment that expired at the end of 2011.

Specifically, the bill extends the tax credits that expired in 2011 from January 1, 2012, until December 31, 2013, for qualified equipment listed in Section 25C of the Internal Revenue Code. Because the credits were made retroactive to January 1, 2012, they can be used for qualified equipment that was installed any time after December 31, 2011. Qualified equipment includes:

Water Heaters ($300 Tax Credit)
• Electric heat pump water heaters with an energy factor of at least 2.0
• Natural gas, propane, or oil water heater with an energy factor of at least 0.82 or a thermal efficiency of at least 90 percent
