What is a Heat Pump?
An air-source heat pump uses advanced technology and the refrigeration cycle to heat and cool your home. This allows a heat pump to provide year-round indoor comfort – no matter what the season is. Heat pumps are trending upwards in residential areas.
A typical air-source heat pump system is a split or two-part system that uses electricity as its power source. The system contains an outdoor unit that looks similar to an air conditioner and an indoor air handler. The heat pump works in conjunction with the air handler to distribute the warm or cool air to interior spaces. In addition to the electrical components and a fan, a heat pump system includes many parts.
How Does a Heat Pump Heat My Home?
A heat pump can switch from air condition mode to heat mode by reversing the refrigeration cycle, making the outside coil function as the evaporator and the indoor coil as the condenser. The refrigerant flows through a closed system of lines between the outdoor and the indoor unit. Air from the inside of your house is pulled into ductwork by a motorized fan. The refrigerant is pumped from the interior coil to the exterior coil, where it absorbs the heat from the air. This warmed air is then pushed through connecting ducts to air vents throughout the home, increasing the interior temperature. The refrigeration cycle continues again, providing a consistent method to keep you warm.
3 Common Heat Pump Problems
There are a number of reasons you might need heat pump repair. However, some symptoms are easier to spot than others. Here are a few of the most common:
Heat pumps utilize an outdoor coil to release heat. Because of this, it’s not uncommon for a layer of frost to develop on the outdoor unit during the winter. Heat pumps are supposed to be defrosting on their own – we suggest giving us a call right away if it starts doing this. Frost puts a lot of excess strain on heat pump systems and it can eventually make the system break down.
Heat pump refrigerant leakage makes the system unable to absorb and transfer the heat it needs to transfer. This can damage the compressor. Our highly skilled local heat pump repair technicians can seal refrigerant leaks in your line and recharge it in order to restore your system and avert further problems from developing.
Heat pumps utilize electricity to power its fan motor and compressors. Because of this, electrical malfunctions are often a common cause of heat pump problems. Faulty electrical parts should be replaced by a professional only for obvious safety reasons.
