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.

Common Types of Heat Pump Problems

If you have an older heat pump, there are certain types of problems homeowners commonly encounter. Below are some of the more common types of problems related to a heat pump unit:

Chillicothe Heating & Cooling

Low refrigerant charge

If your system is low on refrigerant, it can’t produce enough heat to melt ice buildup during winter. During the summer, it’s probably the reason your indoor coil has frozen, and in either case, the heat pump has to work harder to keep your home’s temperature optimal. Testing and charging the system is a job for a qualified HVAC technician.

Defective fan motor

In your outdoor unit, the fan draws air through the coil, assisting in the heat transfer process vital to heating and cooling your home. A defective fan motor means little or no airflow, which can cause the coil to freeze over. This is another job for a pro.

Bad wiring connection

A malfunctioning air handler may be the result of a burnt-out or disconnected wire. Contact Chillicothe Heating & Cooling to diagnose and repair.

Water on outdoor unit

During the winter, water from melting snow or ice can leak onto the coil and then freeze. Your system has a defrost mode, but it may not be enough to take care of a severe freeze-over. To remedy this, find the water source, such as a leaky gutter, and repair the leak. Never try to chip ice from the coil. If the unit doesn’t defrost with its defrost function, call us.

“Should I Repair or Replace My Heat Pump?”

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 heat pump.

Chillicothe Heating & Cooling

"How Old Is My Heat Pump?"

Unlike a furnace or central air conditioner, a heat pump is required to provide you with warm air in the winter and cold air in the summer. Since your heat pump fulfills a demanding task, it will not last for 15 years. Those furnaces (that your eye enviously) that last over 12+ years are only working less than half the time the heat pump does.

"How Efficient is my Heat Pump?"

The SEER rating is usually located on the side of the heat pump. The higher the number, the more efficient the heat pump is. Your 15-year-old unit is probably 10 SEER or less. Since January 23, 2006, every unit sold in the U.S. is required to have a minimum SEER rating of 13 or higher. To increase heat pumps’ efficiency, engineers started to use a new type of refrigerant a couple of years ago. Also, the configuration of heat pumps has been adjusted to reduce electricity consumption.

"What’s the Projected Cost Of Repairs?"

The age and condition of your heat pump will help you determine how much you should spend for repairs. For example, spending a few hundred dollars on a heat pump that’s middle-aged isn’t unreasonable. However, if the repair estimate comes to more than a thousand, your money is probably much better spent investing in a new model.

"What Will My Budget Cover?"

To make this determination, you will have to crunch the numbers and see what you can afford. When you balance the cost to repair or replace a heat pump, usually the repair has a lower upfront price tag. However, our financing options, rebates, and special offers, combined with your potential savings on fuel bills, can turn furnace replacement into a much more budget-friendly option.
