Heat Pump Services in Chicago & the Surrounding Areas
A heat pump is a reliable option for heating homes in Arlington Heights.

You can count on ABC Plumbing, Sewer, Heating, Cooling and Electric for heat pump repair, maintenance, and installation services.
Heat Pumps vs. Other Heating Systems
Heat pumps can provide many homeowners with reliable heating in the Arlington Heights area. They have benefits and drawbacks compared to other heating systems. Here is a closer look at how they heat your home.
Heat Pump vs. Furnace
If you choose a heat pump over a furnace, you will have lower heating costs and less energy use. The system will tap the outdoor air’s heat energy to warm your home. It will have a backup gas or electric furnace for when temperatures dip below freezing, so you always have reliable heating.
A heat pump has less risk than a traditional furnace because it does not use a flame to heat. This means there is a minimal chance of carbon monoxide poisoning or fire. However, there is some risk due to the backup furnace.
Heat Pump vs. Boiler Heat
A heat pump produces heat more slowly than a boiler, but it has a more efficient model. Though boilers are more efficient than furnaces, heat pumps remain the most efficient option. The ratio of electricity used to the amount of heat produced is high.
Boilers have the benefit of heating individual rooms through the radiator system if you wish. You can set up a heat pump this way, if you want, with a zoned system. Heat pumps may be easier to repair because more HVAC companies have trained technicians who can work on them than they do for boilers.
