What Is A Heat Pump And Does It Work?

Plenty of people know that they have a heat pump and that it provides warmth during colder months. However, sometimes it is helpful to have a bit of a deeper understanding. To explain a heat pump simply, these systems use renewable heat in the surrounding areas to help heat (or cool) your home. Even in weather that feels cold to you, there is still a certain amount of heat in the air, ground, and water. This heat is constantly renewed by the sun. By applying a bit more energy to the heat, the heat pump can raise the temperature to desired levels.

How To Maintain Your Heat Pump

Just like anything else, a heat pump will require maintenance from time to time. Typically, this is performed once a year, preferably in the fall, to ensure no outages during the winter months. There are several guidelines that our technicians follow to inspect and clean components of your heat pump. To give you an idea of this process, here are just a few of the highlights:

  • Cleaning or replacing the filter

  • Inspection of wires and connections, replacing any damaged wires and tightening connections

  • Lubricating the blower motor or bearings

  • Inspection of the base pan in the condensing unit, including checking the drain holes and removing any debris

  • Oil and inspect the condensing fan motor

  • Other points of inspection can include the thermostat, measuring the suction line pressure, running a defrost cycle, verifying the status of supplemental heat, and inspecting ductwork

Heat Pump Repair

If your heat pump shows signs of disrepair, a quick response is your best chance of avoiding the expensive loss of components. It’s time to schedule a repair if your unit is:

  • Short-cycling: If your heat pump is short-cycling, your refrigerant is likely leaking, or your filter requires replacement. Short cycling is also a sign of an ailing thermostat or low-pressure control switch.
  • Struggling to achieve temperature: Your heat pump might be low on refrigerant. A bad reversing valve can also reduce the efficacy of your pump.
  • Increasing your electricity bills: This problem might be due to short cycling, a misconfigured thermostat, or malfunctioning wiring.
  • High humidity levels: Dirty or rusty evaporator coils do a poor job of absorbing moisture from the air.

Heat pumps have a relatively short life span of 15 years. If your unit is nearing the end of that period or is breaking down more frequently than it once did, it might be time for a new heat pump installation and heat pump replacement. Choosing the perfect heat pump for your home isn’t as easy as you might think. An over or undersized unit won’t achieve the desired effects. With heat pumps using so much power, the SEER rating of your product will reflect heavily on your utility bills. We’ll help you choose an energy-efficient unit that’s perfectly sized for your home.

As the summer heats up, you’ll naturally be using your air conditioner more and more. This is an effective way to beat the heat, but extensive use of your AC unit can cause wear and tear, or reveal existing problems. We at Sky HVAC want to help you and your family stay comfortable this summer, and to help you do that, our team has put together a list of signs to watch for in order to tell if you need air conditioner repair. Blows Warm Air - One clear sign that something is up with your air conditioner is warm air coming from your vents. If you put your hand by a vent and feel warm air, you probably need air conditioner repair. Makes Loud Noises - Another sign you should be wary of is loud or unusual noises coming from your AC unit. All air conditioners will make some noise as they run, but if you hear grinding, screeching, or scraping sounds from your unit, you should call our team at Sky HVAC to find out if you need air conditioner repair. Smells Bad - Your air conditioner is not supposed to stink. If you notice a bad smell coming from your unit when you turn it on, it’s likely that you need air conditioner repair. A musty smell usually indicates mold somewhere in your system, while a burned smell is likely the result of wire insulation burning out. If you notice any of these signs in your home or find something else unusual happening in your air conditioner, call our team at Sky HVAC. We’ll identify the problem and get your AC running smoothly as soon as possible.

Here at Sky HVAC, we specialize in all things air conditioning, and we want to help you stay cool this summer. Our team believes that the best way to help you take care of your air conditioning unit is to help you understand how it works. Knowing the principles behind your air conditioning unit will help you spot potential problems early and take care of them before they can become serious—or expensive. From our experts at Sky HVAC, here is a brief overview of how air conditioning works. Despite its association with cooling, the principle behind air conditioning is the transfer of heat. The typical air conditioning unit consists of an evaporator, a compressor, a condenser coil, and a fan. The evaporator is located inside the home, and contains a refrigerant that absorbs the heat energy from your home; as this happens, the refrigerant evaporates, hence the name. From there, the heat absorbed in the evaporator is transferred to the condenser coil, located in the exterior half of your air conditioning system. Also located outside with the condenser are the compressor and the fan. The compressor keeps refrigerant circulating throughout your system so that heat can be continually absorbed. Similarly, the fan keeps hot air moving out of your home. We hope that this article has been helpful to you. If you are experiencing problems with your air conditioning, or have further questions on how your unit operates, feel free to call our team at Sky HVAC.
