What Is a Heat Pump & How 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.

Fun fact: Using direct combustion is never the best or most efficient use of fuel (oil or gas).

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 in Charlotte

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.

Charlotte Heat Pump Installation

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.

Sky Air Conditioning and Heating offers licensed, insured installations and flat-rate pricing, so you can always count on our transparency. Our technicians will guide you through your options and perform a trustworthy installation.

Replacement is the most economically viable option if you’re dealing with an old heat pump that’s breaking down frequently. Once your heat pump reaches the end of its service life, a replacement will reduce your energy bills and improve your indoor climate.
