Questions Homeowners Frequently Ask About Heat Pump Systems
Over the years, the team at ARS/Rescue Rooter has received countless calls from customers who are interested in installing a heat pump, but are not sure if such a system would be right for their family.
These are the most common questions we receive about heat pumps:
What are the benefits of having a heat pump?
A heat pump benefits you because it requires less power than a conventional HVAC system using a furnace and air conditioner. Therefore, you can anticipate seeing lower power bills.
The heat pump simply moves air, instead of generating heat. Such energy efficiency is a major motivation for families wanting to “go green” and lower their carbon footprint.
Homeowners also prefer heat pumps because they operate more quietly, humming along in the background as compared to the louder noises associated with furnaces and A/C systems.
What kind of maintenance does a heat pump need?
It’s imperative to arrange for a heat pump tune-up regularly, once every year. A skilled technician, such as from ARS/Rescue Rooter, will examine, test, clean, and maintain your system and fix any problems before they grow larger and become more expensive to treat.
Ongoing maintenance can also help keep the system running as efficiently as possible. Maintenance should preserve the heat pump while keeping your power bills low.
Do I need to use my heat pump 24 hours a day?
It’s better for your budget only to run the heat pump when it’s needed. Operating it 24/7 is not necessary and will make your utility bill skyrocket. A properly insulated house will retain heat better.
For best results, we recommend installing a smart thermostat to control the heat pump. That way, your home will always be at the right temperature automatically.
What else can heat pumps do besides heating?
A heat pump moves heat from one place to another. During the summer, the heat pump removes heat from your home, pushing it outside, so it acts to cool your home.
During the winter, however, the process reverses. The pump moves heat into your home from outside, taking advantage of the temperature difference between the environment and your house.
How long does a heat pump last?
On average, you can expect that your new heat pump will last 12 to 15 years if you take good care of it. Arranging for annual inspection, cleaning, and maintenance from the heat pump service experts at ARS/Rescue Rooter can help keep your system running efficiently.
Our technicians are skilled at identifying problems when they are small and relatively easy, and less expensive to fix. That’s crucial for getting the most use out of your heat pump system.
How Does a Heat Pump Work?
When air conditioners process refrigerants such as Freon, they create a tremendous amount of heat. The heat pump reverses part of the process to extract and distribute that heat throughout the home.
Heat pumps are generally very energy-efficient for central heating in climates where the temperature is somewhat mild. In fact, they're 3-4 times more effective than space heaters using the same amount of electricity. It takes much less energy to move heat around than it does to generate heat.
Keep in mind that if the outside temperature falls below 37°F, heat pumps need to run constantly to maintain warmth.
Is this the right HVAC system for me?
Your local ARS/Rescue Rooter HVAC specialist can help you make the right decisions for your home heating solution. For instance, we may recommend a dual-fuel system, which uses an electric heat pump during milder temperatures (above freezing) along with a gas furnace during colder weather. This solution has become a popular solution for maximum comfort.
