Heat Pump Maintenance in Circleville, OH

With a heat pump running in both the winter and the summer, it’s essential seasonal maintenance is performed regularly. In fact, heat pumps that lack regular maintenance from an NATE-certified technician end up consuming up to 25 percent more energy compared to a heat pump that’s properly cared for.

To make matters worse, lack of regular maintenance makes heat pumps far more likely to break down and require replacement sooner. Heat pumps are complex and expensive HVAC units that keep our homes comfortable year-round. Why not give them the care they need to help them last longer, operate far more effectively and cost us less money in the long run in energy costs?

What is a Heat Pump?

Homeowners looking for a single HVAC system to use during the winter and the summer (one that’s also environmentally friendly and energy efficient) should look at our wide selection of heat pumps.

Although they use an air handler inside the home, heat pumps are installed outside much like a central A/C. Also similar to a centralized AC, heat pumps cool the home using refrigerants. During the wintertime, heat pumps pull heat from the cold outdoor air and transfer it into the home. During the summer, it pulls heat out of indoor air to cool your home.

Powered by electricity, heat pumps transfer heat by using refrigerants. This enables them to provide homeowners comfort all year round. Because they help with both heating and cooling, homeowners may not need to install a separate HVAC system to provide additional heat. However, in colder climates a homeowner can use an electric heat strip added to the indoor fan coil for additional heating. Because heat pumps do not use any sort of fossil fuel to generate heat like furnaces, they’re environmentally friendly and very energy efficient, which saves money.

How Do Heat Pumps Heat and Cool?

Some homeowners aren’t aware that heat pumps don’t actually generate heat. They redistribute heat from the ground or air and use a refrigerant that moves it from the indoor fan coil (air handler) and the outdoor compressor to transfer the heat. In heating mode, the heat pump absorbs heat from the outside air (even cold air) and ground then releases it indoors. In cooling mode, the system absorbs heat inside your home and releases it outside.

What Types of Heat Pumps Are There?

Air-source and ground-source heat pumps are the two most common styles. Air-source heat pumps transfer heat between outdoor air and indoor air. They are more popular for residential heating and cooling.

Ground-source heat pumps are called geothermal heat pumps. They transfer heat between the air inside your home and the ground outside. Geothermal heat pumps are more expensive to install but are usually more efficient and cost less to run because the ground temperature is consistent throughout the year.

Where Do Heat Pumps Work Best?

Heat pumps generally work best in milder climates, where the temperature does not normally drop below freezing. In colder areas, they can also be used in conjunction with furnaces or other heating equipment for energy-efficient heating on all but the coldest days of the year. When the temperature outside drops too low for the heat pump to operate effectively, the unit will instead use the furnace to produce the needed heat. This type of set-up is commonly referred to as a dual fuel system — it’s known to be energy efficient and cost effective.

What Are the Components of a Heat Pump System?

The main components of a heat pump system include:


  • Indoor unit that houses a coil and a fan to circulate the air throughout the home
  • Outdoor unit with a coil that acts as a condenser in cooling mode and an evaporator in heating mode
  • Refrigerant that absorbs heat and releases it as it circulates through the system
  • The compressor pressurizes the refrigerant
  • The reversing valve changes the direction of the flow of refrigerant in the heat pump, enabling your to shift between cooling and heating according to your needs
  • Expansion valve that regulates the flow of refrigerant through the system
