Known for installing Virginia's warmest air-source heat pump systems on record, Atlas Heating & air Conditioning has managed to further enhance their signature heat pump Maximizer, enhancing both comfort and efficiency.

Newly advanced technology allows the Maximizer device to measure heating performance in order to determine the exact level of thermal depletion that occurs with ground source heat pumps. All heat pumps experience thermal depletion, and often require various amounts of supplemental heat to compensate for the loss. Supplemental heat is a necessary evil that is often feared or rejected by homeowners. Many have even gone as far as to have it disabled in hopes of lowering their utility cost. Unfortunately this crippling of the system is more likely to do harm than it is to do good. The Maximizer's claim to fame is its unique ability to regulate and control supplemental heat sources for the most economical balance of comfort and efficiency. These economical developments mean a warmer home with a lower utility bill.

Sophisticated temperature sensors combined with a simple method of calculation determine exactly how much heat is being produced by a heat pump. The Maximizer contains two probes which are installed inside a heat pump's interior unit. One probe measures the temperature of the air in the house, while the other measures the heated air flowing in the supply duct. A comparator circuit then decides when to engage the back up heat to deliver the most economical balance of effective heating.

Installed in five quick minutes, the Maximizer's common sense design and patented temperature comparing relay make it one if the greatest contributions to heat pump technology.
