Royal River Heat Pumps will be closed for our annual holiday break from December 24th through January 1st, 2021, returning to the office on January 4th. We are wishing you and your family a safe and happy holiday season!
Check out this article from the Portland Press Herald, that originally appeared In The Sunrise Guide monthly newsletter where Scott Libby of Royal River Heat Pumps in Freeport explains the efficiency and evolving technology of heat pumps.
The technical name for a heat pump is a Reverse Cycle Air Conditioner. Essentially, they are air conditioners that can work in reverse to perform a heating function. Most people in Maine want an energy-efficient way to heat their homes. They get that when they have a heat pump installed, and because of the technology, they also get a very efficient air conditioner. Heat pumps are so popular because people in colder climates can now actually heat their homes with them.
According to this article from The Sunrise Guide, Green and Healthy Maine, ductless heat pumps are one of the most popular technologies for highly efficient heating in cold climates. More than 20,000 high-efficiency ductless heat pumps have been installed in Maine homes and businesses in the past three years.
