Heat Pump Services in Chillicothe, OH
What is a Heat Pump?
A heat pump is a single HVAC system used year-round for heating and cooling. It is installed outside the home, but uses an air handler inside the home. Like an air conditioner, it can cool your home using refrigerants. However, during the colder months, it is also capable of providing heat. During the cooler months, heat pumps pull heat from the cold outdoor air and transfer it into the home. During the warmer months, it pulls heat out of indoor air to cool your home.
Heat pumps are powered by electricity. Because they handle both cooling and heating, homeowners may not need to install separate HVAC systems to heat their homes. In colder climates, an electric heat strip can be added to the indoor fan coil for additional heating capacity. Because heat pumps do not burn fossil fuel to create heat like furnaces do, they are environmentally friendly and very energy efficient, which saves you money.

How to Choose the Right Air Conditioner
Having an HVAC system that’s efficient plays a crucial role in keeping your Southern Ohio home safe, cozy, and comfortable all year. But how do you decide which type of A/C is best suited for your home? If you’re looking to replace your old or outdated unit, this guide can help guide you in the process. Before making a decision, consider the following factors:
Types of Air Conditioners
- Central A/C: The most common type of air conditioning unit is the central home cooling system. Central cooling systems use an air duct network to transport all the cool air throughout the home. Typically, the central A/C is a two-part system. There is an outdoor unit that contains the condenser coils and compressor, and an indoor unit with evaporator coils. Refrigerant lines link the two together.
- Ductless Mini-Split Systems: Ductless mini-split systems are ideal for apartments and homes. They also use indoor and outdoor units. One benefit is they require less space inside and are faster to install than central air conditioning systems. The indoor air handlers are mounted on the ceiling or walls of the rooms you choose to install them in.
The benefits of ductless air conditioners include quieter operation, zoned temperature control and even temperature distribution. With individual units in different areas in the house, you can save energy by switching off airflow to rooms you aren’t using and personalize comfort settings in the rooms you are using.
- Evaporative Air Conditioners: Evaporative coolers are less common than refrigerant air conditioners. They are, however, a low-cost and energy-efficient way to cool a home. They use a fan to draw in outside air and pull it through moist pads where the air is cooled by evaporation and then circulated through the house. This simple process produces air that is 20-30 degrees cooler.
A SEER rating is another factor you should take into consideration to optimize your A/C shopping experience. Think of SEER like a rating, like the miles per gallon you’d get with a certain car. Higher MPG means you spend less money on fuel costs. Similarly, a high SEER rating is synonymous with a more energy-efficient air conditioner. It’s calculated by measuring the total BTUs (which stands for British Thermal Unit) of heat rejected per hour and dividing that number by the watts of electricity used to reject that heat.
In any case, the higher the SEER rating, the lower the cost of energy during your unit’s lifetime. While systems with a higher SEER rating usually cost more upfront, they save you more money in the long run.
Size is also important. If an A/C is undersized or oversized, it won’t cool effectively and will increase your energy bills. And your home may not feel comfortable. A unit that’s too big will cost more upfront, and will cycle on and off too many times, shortening its life.

“Should I Repair or Replace My A/C?”
When home HVAC equipment breaks down, fixing it can be quite expensive. And, if you find yourself having to fix it more often, you may wonder whether it’s better to repair or replace your system. Below we list seven essential questions and answers that will help you decide whether to repair or replace your A/C.
"What’s the Projected Cost Of Repairs?"
This is generally the main factor when looking for something new. A lot of experts recommend a new furnace and new air conditioner if the repair is more than $800. But, if the system is only 6 years old, $800 doesn’t seem that bad of investment to squeeze a few more years of life out of your system. With this in mind, it’s good to look at both the age and the cost of the repair. If the home cooling system is more than 10 years old and it’s going to cost more than $800 to repair you should take a serious look at replacing the unit. There’s also the 50% Rule: When the cost of repairs approaches 50% of the value of the unit, it’s usually time to replace the system.
"HOW EFFICIENT IS MY HEAT PUMP?"
"How Old Is My A/C?"
Factors you should consider with age is the unit’s reliability, it’s history and efficiency, and how well it has been maintained over the years.
