Heat Pumps Installation, Repairs & Maintenance in Portland and Cumberland County, Maine
Heat pumps from The Steinert Co. Inc. offer you solutions to improve your comfort as well as the energy efficiency of your Portland Maine or Cumberland County home. Heating systems that include a heat pump system are highly desirable for cutting down on your energy costs when compared to alternatives like electric furnaces, window air conditioners, and boilers.
For any older home that has no central air conditioning system, the ductless air conditioning systems are wonderful, especially in climates like ours where having a huge air conditioning system just isn’t practical. Some models provide cooling and others can both heat and cool.
One example is the Solaris heat pump by Mitsubishi that gives you 3.5 units of heat for each unit of electricity, whereas with regular electric heat you get about one unit of heat for each unit of electricity.
At this time and according to Efficiency Maine, the state of Maine is offering incentives to both homeowners and commercial property owners for heat pumps installations.

Whole House Ducted Heat Pumps
Heat pumps in Portland, ME move the heat from the outdoors into the building during cold seasons and the opposite during the warm seasons. Because they move heat rather than generating heat, they provide much more energy than they consume. Plus, they use so little energy that when combined with solar electric photovoltaic modules (solar panels), you have the perfect way to utilize the free energy from the sun to heat your home.
If your home already has a forced hot air system, there are new whole house dual source furnaces that have a built in heat pump. When it gets too cold outside, the unit automatically switches to an alternate energy source and runs like a normal furnace.
Mini Split Ductless Heat Pumps and Air Conditioning
Our Mini Split ductless systems are comprised of simple, compact but powerful systems that don’t require a large air handler or ventilation ducts to operate. That means they can be installed just about anywhere in the home or building and don’t require the space a regular central air system would. The mini split system provides both heating and air conditioning.
Heat Pumps Integrated into Hot Water Heater Tanks
If you want a way to save a lot on your hot water costs, a high efficiency hot water tank can be fitted with a heat pump system. These systems are becoming more popular because they are so reasonably priced and are very energy efficient. This system draws on the heat in the room to warm the water. Plus, they vent cold dry air into your water heater tank closet or basement which solves humidity issues in the area.
