Year Round Benefits of a Heat Pump

Do you live in an area that has a relatively moderate temperature year round? Are you tired of having to crank the heat in the winter and cool air in the summer, all while reducing your efficiency? If you answered yes to either of these questions, then a heat pump may be right for you.

Heat pumps work by using electricity. They move heat from a cool space to a warm place, to put it simply. This way, they are able to make cool spaces cooler, while simultaneously making warm spaces warmer. During the colder months, heat pumps move heat from the cool outdoors into your warm house. When it gets warmer outside, heat pumps move heat from your cool house into the warm outdoors.Moving heat instead of generating it can provide the same heating and cooling at 1/4 the cost. Still unconvinced? Here are some other ways that heat pumps can benefit you year  round.

Benefits of a Heat Pump Installation

Shortly after your heat pump installation, you should be able to notice the following benefits in your home:

  •  Low Running Costs: Heat pumps are cheaper to run in comparison to those who run on combustion. This will save you money on your utility bills!
  • Low Maintenance: Heat pumps require far less maintenance in comparison to combustion heating systems. Approximately once a year certain details of the system have to be checked, which could easily be accomplished by yourself. If you are a bit hesitant, consider hiring a professional to check on the system.
  • Safety: Heat pumps are far less likely to cause problems than other heating systems, giving you peace of mind knowing that your home is safe.
  • Reduced Carbon Emissions: Heat pump systems reduce your carbon emissions and it has an efficient conversion rate of energy to heat. For example, water source heat pumps reach reasonably high efficiencies. They heavily rely on electricity to operate, implying that they will never be entirely carbon neutral. However, since heat pumps are electric, they represent a perfect fit for solar applications. Coupled together with solar panels, heat pumps could lead to zero net energy.
  • Cooling: During warmer months of the years, heat pumps are able to reverse the flow process. Because of this, the heat pump can serve a similar function to an air conditioner. Air to air heat pumps can conveniently be switched to cooling mode during the summers.
  • Durability: The lifespan of heat pumps is relatively long in comparison to other systems. In most cases, the average lifespan of a heat pump is somewhere around 14-15 years.

5 Signs to Call for Professional Heat Pump Repair

Heat pumps are a kind of home heating systems that work year-round to keep you comfortable. By moving heat to where it’s needed, it can work wonders as an auxiliary heat source. However, your heat pump can run into its own set of problems that require professional repair work. Our heat pump experts can help you identify a heat pump in need of our professional touch.

Here are five signs your heat pump needs our professional repair work:


Cycling problems

Heat pumps work by circulating refrigerant through a cycle of evaporation and condensation. A heat pump facing problems may turn on and off every few minutes instead of properly cycling. This problem can wear down your heat pump and hurt its overall lifespan if not corrected. There’s no single cause for cycling problems, so you’ll need professional assistance to diagnose and fix the problem.


Disruptive noises

Loud noises are a common sign that an appliance needs repairs. Internal problems with your heat pump may cause it to make loud noises while it’s operating. Like with cycling problems, there are many possible causes for the noise. The best way to deal with this problem is by calling a professional.


Stuck reversing valve

Heat pumps can reverse their heating process to help cool your home during hotter weather. However, if the reversing valve gets stuck, the heat pump won’t be able to switch between heating and cooling. It’s easy to tell what the problem is in this case, but you’ll still need a professional’s help to properly fix the problem.


Retirement age

Old age is another major reason appliances become less reliable and inefficient. If you have the manufacturer’s instructions for your heat pump, you might be able to find when you should expect to replace it. On average, fifteen years is generally when heat pumps should be replaced. However, this number can change depending on the model, the manufacturer, and how well you’ve maintained yours.


Heightened energy bills

Whether caused by old age, worn parts, or inactivity, poor energy efficiency is another common problem for heat pumps and other appliances. Poor energy efficiency means an appliance has to use more electricity to properly work, which means you’ll spend more on its operation. Also, since inefficient appliances have to work harder, they tend to wear down quicker. Giving your heat pump regular maintenance can keep it efficient and avoid a premature breakdown.
