Heat Pump Guide

WHO WE ARE

Dave’s Appliance was established in Winthrop, ME in 1977 by David and Denise Ketchen after they closed their Western Auto location to focus on home appliances. Their three sons, Scott, Mike and Brian took over the business in 1999.

Around 2006, heat pumps started becoming a feasible heating and cooling option in Maine’s unique climate. Mike transitioned his focus from refrigeration to heat pumps looking to provide the same quality sales and service that Dave’s Appliance had provided for years prior in Central Maine.

More than 15 years later, the Dave’s Appliance Heat Pump Division has installed more than 5,000 systems across Maine and grown to a team of more than 25 sales, service and installation technicians dedicated to ensuring your needs are met.

HEAT PUMP MYTHS, FACTS & MORE FROM EFFICIENCY MAINE

MYTH: Heat pumps need backup in the cold

FACT: If a heat pump system is properly designed, there should be no need for backup. Some systems operate efficiently at temperatures as low as -15 °F.

MYTH: Heat pumps aren’t efficient in the cold.

FACT: Though they lose efficiency as the outdoor temperature drops, even at temperatures near 0 °F rebate-eligible heat pumps can be nearly 200% efficient.

MYTH: Turning down heat pumps at night saves energy.

FACT: While this is true for furnaces and boilers, it is not true for heat pumps. Heat pumps save the most energy when allowed to maintain a constant temperature. That’s why we recommend that people, “set it and forget it.”
