How do heat pumps work?
A heat pump is a heating and cooling system that compresses and decompresses gas to either cool or heat a property. This type of mechanical device works to pump heat from a cooler location to a warmer one while extracting heat from the ground, water, or air. Heat pumps work similarly to an air conditioning system during the summer and a furnace during the winter, thereby including both a cooling and heating unit in just one central device.
What are the benefits of installing this unit?
There are a few key benefits of installing a heat pump in your home or commercial property. For example, over time it will save you a great deal of money on your energy bills, especially if you’re replacing a conventional heating system. Also, a heat pump system comes with a potential monetary bonus in the form of a renewable heat incentive from the government and will also diminish your carbon footprint. Heat pumps help make your home or building more eco-friendly since they’re literally relying on a renewable energy source. This will additionally help to keep your utility bills at a reasonable level.
What are some energy-efficient features of this system?
Heat pumps make a great energy-efficient alternative source to traditional heating and cooling systems. Efficient heat pumps utilize electricity in order to transfer hot and cold air as desired. Throughout the winter months, cold air is pumped out of your property and warm air is extracted from deep within the ground or another readily available source. In the summer warm air is pushed out of your home or building. Since these devices are so efficient at moving heat instead of having to generate it, they can cost as little as 25% of operating traditional cooling or heating appliances.

What are some common problems with these units?
- Heat pump cycles incorrectly: If a heat pump is turning on and off too often, the unit itself is likely overheating due to a malfunctioning blower or clogged filter.
- Malfunctioning condenser: If the heat pump’s condenser unit freezes up, the system should be turned off. One of our professionals can check it to ensure that none of the return-air registers are actually blocked and that the filter isn’t clogged as well.
- Blower stops working: The limit switch in a heat pump is designed to shut down the unit if the air inside the plenum becomes too hot, which will cause the blower to stop working.
In order to ensure heat pumps continue to operate at maximum efficiency, they should be properly installed by our team of professionals. Keep in mind that heat pumps are a great deal more cost-effective than other mainstream heating and cooling devices and are becoming increasingly popular.
