How Do Heat Pumps Work?
As opposed to traditional heating and cooling systems, which change the actual temperature of the air entering your home, heat pump instead move air as a way to heat or cool. In the winter times, heat pumps pull warmer air from around your home to keep you warm. In the summer months when things are a little toastier, they do the reverse, moving hot air outside, leaving you and your family warmer.
Because heat pumps are not physically changing the temperature of the air through a heating element or evaporator coils, it keeps energy consumption down, along with the need for extensive repairs or maintenance. These smaller systems are generally installed outside of your home, which also helps you save space and reduce extensive installation needs.
Signs Your System Needs Repairs
While these systems are more energy efficiency, they’re still going to need regular repairs and upkeep to ensure they’re working as efficiently as possible. Some common signs you need heat pump repairs include:
- Low Airflow: A strong flow of air is key to keeping comfortable in your home. If your airflow is low in certain areas of your home, or throughout, you should have your heat pump inspected.
- Noisy Operation: Heat pumps are designed to be small and quiet, which is why any noisy operation should always be inspected by a professional. It could range in anything from a loose part to faulty mechanical components.
- Fluctuating Temperatures: These units move air in and out of your home as a way to keep temperatures where you want them. If you’re noticing that your pump is not doing a great job of heating your home, chances are an inspection is in order.
- High Energy Bills: Heat pumps should be more energy efficient than traditional heating systems like furnaces, which is why a huge uptick in utilities could be a cause for concern. It’s either an indication that the blower is damaged and struggling to keep up with the air transfer, or something else is wrong with the unit.
