Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) January 05, 2012
Constantly looking for new ways to create higher energy efficiencies and higher cost savings opportunities for Pittsburgh area customers and residents, Gillece is touting its most recent product addition – the York® Affinity™ YZH – a made-in-the-USA, top quality, high efficiency, high comfort heat pump. Heat pumps are popular growing alternatives for single family residence homes due to the fact that the homeowner does not need to have two separate operating systems for heating and cooling within their home. When used in reverse, a heat pump actually cools the entire home. However, as with any major home appliance, there are levels of efficiencies and comforts to varying degrees. The York® Affinity™ YZH Heat Pump, which Gillece Services touts, offers, sells, and installs, has an Energy Star qualifying efficiency rating of 18 SEER and 10.0 HSPF.
In terms of energy efficiencies, the York® Affinity™ YZH Heat Pump’s SEER (stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) rating of 18 measures the air conditioning cooling efficiency. The higher the SEER, the more efficient the product. The York® Affinity™ YZH’s HSPF (stands for Heating Seasonal Performance Factor) rating of 10.0 measures the heat pump's heating efficiency. Like the SEER, the higher the HSPF, the more efficient the product. The fact that it is a Energy Star model means that the heat pump uses at least 15-25% less energy than standard models.
The newly touted Gillece Service’s York Heat Pump also operates with “QuietDrive”™ which is, “…a proprietary York product design that reduces operating noise and expenses with a high-efficiency compressor, isolated compressor compartment, swept-wing fan design, and composite base pan.” (direct quote from http://www.york.com) A more efficient, top-functioning home heat pump means more effective and consistent heating and cooling, and fewer problems, which leads to more comfort and can lead to more cost savings for Pittsburgh area customers and residents.
Gillece Services now also offers the York® Affinity™ YZH Heat Pump not only to Pittsburgh and Allegheny County, but also to its surrounding five area counties including Armstrong, Beaver, Butler, Washington and Westmoreland. Gillece Services has fully trained and licensed HVAC (Heating and Cooling) Technicians covering all of the six counties’ territories. Technicians are dispatched from their homes to service calls and appliance installs in close proximity to their customers’ locations to increase effectiveness of response and arrival time, and to afford the ability of being able to work around a customer’s busy schedule. Essentially, everything a Gillece Technician is right on his truck, but if a York® Affinity™ YZH Heat Pump is desired, special accommodations will be made to have everything ready for the Gillece customer in advance of service arrival.
For over 30 years, Gillece Services has been Pittsburgh area’s one-stop shop for Plumbing, Heating, Cooling, Electrical, Indoor Air Quality, and Water Conditioning services – emergency, maintenance and replacement. Family owned and operated, President Tom Gillece innovated the Gillece “There The Same Day or You Don’t Pay!”* service policy, and “Always Here to Take Your Call!” customer philosophy.
