How Do Heat Pumps Work?
A heat pump is an appliance that circulates refrigerant to absorb heat and uses electricity to transfer it from one place to another. It can be used to heat your home by moving outside heat to the inside or to cool your home by moving the heat inside your home to the outside.
There are a few different types of heat pumps:
- Air-source heat pumps: Absorb heat from outside and release it inside your ducts to be distributed by an air handler. You can change your thermostat setting to reverse the process and pull heated air from inside your home.
- Ductless heat pumps: Use in-room units instead of your home’s ducting network. This lets you customize the temperature of each room in your house with mini-split or multi-split units, giving you more flexibility.
- Hybrid systems: Change between energy sources to operate more efficiently and save you money on heating bills. They accomplish this by using a heat pump with your gas furnace and changing depending on certain weather conditions.
Benefits of Heat Pump Installation
When compared to traditional HVAC systems, heat pumps are incredibly efficient. They only need a small amount of energy to move hot or cold air and can cost as little as 25% of the cost to operate other heating and cooling appliances.
Heat pumps also combine cooling and heating into one system with fewer maintenance requirements and a lifespan of over 15 years.

Reasons to Schedule Heat Pump Repair
Although heat pumps typically require less maintenance than HVAC systems, running them year-round to manage heating and cooling will eventually take its toll. You should contact our repair specialists if your heat pump displays any of the following:
- Ice buildup on the condenser
- Cycling too frequently
- The fan has stopped moving
- Lack of airflow from the vents
- Unresponsive cooling or heating
