Heat Pumps in Ottawa
More and more Ottawa homeowners are making the switch to heat pumps. What, exactly, is a heat pump? It is basically a central air conditioning system that also has the ability to heat your home when the weather is colder. It got its name because it pumps heat into your home in winter and pumps heat out of your home in the summer.
Because of the heat pump’s ability to both heat and cool Ottawa homes efficiently and economically, it’s no wonder homeowners are opting to use this incredible technology in their home. Of course, to really reap the benefits of this dual-purpose contraption, you need to have it properly installed.

Heat Pump Installations
If you are interested in getting your home outfitted with a brand-new heat pump, GK Plumbing & Heating Inc.’s highly trained technicians can get it done. The first step in our heat pump installation process is to have a member of our staff visit your home to conduct a site survey. This is when we’ll figure out the type of heat pump your home will need, its energy supply source and the energy distribution system we’ll need to install. There are a number of factors that will affect the course of action we take, which is why it is so important to have a professional make these assessments.
Some of the variables that can influence the type of heat pump we install include:
- The size of your home
- The existing heating system
- Dimensions and layout
- Orientation of glass
- Level of insulation in your home
- Size, rating and number of windows
- Existing ventilation and air exchanger system
From there, we’ll know exactly what your home heating needs are and we’ll be able to install a heat pump that both heats and cools your home to perfection.
