Premium Central & Mini-Split Heat Pumps in Englewood
Heat pumps are both effective and efficient in providing year-round whole-home and specific area heating and cooling, and their benefits make them a home comfort option worth learning more about. Our team at Save Home Heat Company is expert at installing central and ductless mini-split heat pumps, and be trusted to find the right fit for your home in Englewood, CO.
What Is a Heat Pump?
An air-source heat pump works exactly like a conventional air conditioner during warm weather, and then switches its function to heat your home during the winter months. Powered by electricity, heat pumps don’t rely on fossil fuels such as gas or propane, providing a source of clean, ‘green’ heating for your home. This makes heat pumps an attractive option for Englewood homeowners looking to stay comfortable throughout the year while improving efficiency in a more environmentally friendly manner.
In our area, a central heat pump is typically used in tandem with a forced air gas furnace in what’s known as a ‘dual fuel heating system.’ A dual fuel system combines the capabilities of a heat pump and a furnace into a single well-coordinated system that provides a number of benefits and advantages. If you’re considering replacing an existing or installing a new central air conditioner, a central heat pump is an option worth considering.
Ductless mini-split heat pumps, on the other hand, operate independently of a central system. Ductless heat pumps are used to create independently controlled comfort ‘zones’ in specific areas and rooms in a home, and are popular with homeowners looking to solve heating and cooling issues in rooms that are not adequately served by existing central systems. A whole-house mini-split heat pump system can even replace an existing central system, if desired. Ductless mini-split systems routinely garner high levels of customer satisfaction for their performance, and continue to grow as a product of choice in Englewood and surrounding communities.

Zoned Heating & Cooling with a Variety of Indoor Blower Styles
Not only do mini-split heat pumps come with zoning capability, multi-zone ductless systems are great for keeping your outdoor footprint and noise level contained. Multi-zone systems use just a single outdoor condensing unit to several power indoor blowers. Certain multi-zone outdoor units can even power as many as six indoor blower units. The most popular variety of indoor blower unit is the wall-mounted style, and other options include ceiling-cassette, floor mounted, and duct-able blowers that can tucked away out of sight. The system is controlled by a handheld, remote control thermostat which can also be installed on a wall like a conventional thermostat.
Eco-Friendly, Whole-Home Ductless Heating and Cooling
Regional utility companies in the Denver-Boulder area continue to shift towards wind, solar, and other renewable energy sources for electrical generation, and many homeowners in the area are following suit. Converting older, inefficient gas and electric heating systems to ductless heat pumps for your home in Englewood is a great way to enjoy more environmentally friendly, versatile heating and cooling. Zoning capability, efficient operation, and high performance are all benefits that come along with adding this greener home comfort solution.

Englewood Central Heat Pumps
If your current furnace and ducting system are distributing warm and cool air to your satisfaction, a central heat pump is worth considering in your Englewood home if you are going to be replacing an existing or installing a new central air conditioner. During the summers, exactly like conventional AC, a central heat pump will provide effective cooling throughout your home. When the weather cools off, central pumps switch their function over to heating. A professionally sized and installed central heat pump can handle most or all of the heating you’d normally lean on your furnace for during relatively mild weather. Working together in tandem, the heat pump and your furnace make up what it is known as a ‘dual fuel heating system,’ providing a number of valuable benefits in this arrangement.
Dual Fuel Central Heating Systems
When installed in tandem with a central gas furnace, the central heat pump is fueled by electricity, while the furnace typically burns gas or propane – hence the term ‘dual fuel.’ The heat pump handles the initial heating demand, and when conditions dictate, the heating task is smoothly, automatically handed off to the furnace to complete the job. By sharing heating responsibilities, working in concert, both systems experience less wear, provide higher overall efficiency, and help reduce your home’s carbon footprint.
The advantages of a central dual fuel heating and cooling system include:
- Greener heating and cooling option than a standard furnace and AC system
- Reduced gas consumption
- Reduced carbon footprint
- Improved system efficiency
- Decreased load and increased lifespan for your furnace
- Two sources of heat instead of just one (a built-in backup system)
- State-of-the-art comfort levels, all year-round
For the ultimate central forced air dual fuel heating and cooling system, our team at Save Home Heat Company recommends combining a high efficiency variable-output furnace with a high efficiency, variable-output heat pump.
