Quality Service Company is experienced in the service, repair, and installation of heat pumps in Florence, SC, and its surrounding area. A heat pump is a device that transfers heat from one place to another, from indoors to outdoors or from outdoors to indoors. For homes with no access to natural gas, heat pumps offer an efficient and reliable solution for heating and cooling.
How Do Heat Pumps Work?
In the winter, a heat pump works like a heater, extracting heat energy from outside and transferring it inside. In the summer, the process reverses, and it will remove heat from your home and transfer it outside like an air conditioner. Heat pumps do this so well that many people in warmer climates exclusively rely on a heat pump for year-round comfort. For those living in colder climates, they use electric-powered heat pumps in conjunction with their gas or oil furnace resulting in lower heating costs.
Heat pumps work with a series of coils drawing energy from air, water, or the ground. In this way, they are very environmentally friendly and are the most energy-efficient way to heat and cool your home. Heat pumps also work extremely efficiently, because they simply transfer heat, rather than burn fuel to create it. This makes them a greener alternative to traditional gas or oil furnaces. Though you may think you’re unfamiliar with them, they traditionally heat swimming pools and hot tubs, so you most likely have come in contact with them and not even known it.
Different Types of Heat Pumps
There are three types of heat pumps: air-to-air, water source, and geothermal. As mentioned above, they collect their heat from the air, water, and outside-your-home ground and concentrate it for use. Call Quality Service Company to discuss the basic differences between these types and which one would work best for you and your home.
Are Heat Pumps Expensive?
Installation costs of heat pumps are higher than with a traditional furnace or air conditioner, but the savings over time in annual energy costs make up for the difference in five to ten years. Performing proper operation and maintenance of your heat pump will also save you money, as you’ll use less energy, thus resulting in less cost. Be sure to ask your HVAC professional for the proper thermostat setting and the indoor pump’s fan operation. Not following the recommended guidelines can inhibit the maximized running of the pump and can degrade the unit itself. Regular maintenance can prevent degradation as well. Consistent filter changing or cleaning is necessary for a well-running heat pump. Seasonal cleaning of coils and fans go a long way in preventing poor energy efficiency that can end up costing you more money. The energy difference between a well-maintained system and a neglected one can be anywhere from 10 to 25 percent.

Heat Pump Installation in Hartsville, SC 29550
“As a senior citizen, on a fixed income, when a major home expense arises I can assure everyone that I do an intense research of all my options! That’s exactly what I did when I recently needed a new heating and cooling system. QUALITY SERVICE CO. LLC came out above all others and they exceeded my expectations! Tori was my phone contact and was always patient, polite and very prompt in returning calls with information I requested. Chris showed the same courtesies when he came to my home to inform me of the products and prices his company has to offer. At my request, by phone, he did indeed show up with a mask (covid-19 safety) and continued to wear it until he was back in his truck. Once I made my decision, the work was scheduled. Justin and Deven were on time and worked diligently to remove my old system before starting the new install. But if I asked a question, they would pause long enough to answer my question politely and then resume their work. Glen was also involved in seeing that all was progressing well and helped make my new system perfect, to the smallest detail. I’ve got to mention Tori again, she was a pro with all the paper work and thanks to her, my one trip to the office obtained the partial financing I needed and I’ve already received my Duke Energy rebate. Glen told me about the REME-HALO, a new advanced environmental air treatment system that can be placed in the HVAC. It was an optional additional expense but instead of waking up coughing, I now wake up with odorless air that reminds me of a fresh mountain breeze. Also, at no time did I ever feel pressured to hire their company or buy any of their products. It felt more like family taking care of family and the job wasn’t finished until Glen, Justin and Deven knew I was completely satisfied with my new system. I would highly recommend QUALITY SERVICE CO. LLC to anyone!!!”

“Our 23 year old Trane unit bit the dust this past Sunday. I called QSC Monday morning at 8:00 AM. Matt Hicks was at my home to discuss my options at 9:00 AM. We decided to go with the Daikin heat pump because of their favorable reviews and the fact that they offer an unbelievable 12 year warranty on parts and labor.
Tuesday morning at 7:30 AM Brett and his assistant were at our home to install our new Daikin system. Glenn arrived a little later to lend his expertise. By 3:30 PM, our system was in place and operating better than we expected. Brett and his assistant even landscaped the area and washed it down when they finished.
I normally do not write reviews, but this company deserves an exceptional review. The following employees were in constant contact with us to insure our complete satisfaction: Amanda, Matt, Tori, Brett and Glenn.”
