Multi-Faceted Heat Pumps in Orlando, FL
U.S. Heating & Air Conditioning’s Geothermal Heat Pumps
Heat pumps are an effective alternative to central HVAC systems because they provide heating and cooling in your home without having to use a furnace. Unlike furnaces, these systems don’t generate heat by themselves. Instead, they push hot air outside your home during the summer. During winter, they pull warm air into the house. While they’re available with and without ducts, ductless heat pumps offer a benefit others don’t. They eliminate the many inefficiencies of ductwork while cooling or heating your home. They do so by establishing and maintaining a continuous connection between your indoor and outdoor units. If you’re looking for a fresh approach to home comfort, then contact U.S. Heating & Air Conditioning for heat pumps.
When to Repair and When to Replace a Heat Pump
Just as with a furnace or air conditioner, a heat pump requires routine maintenance to stay in good working order. We offer regular maintenance visits that include a thorough inspection and important adjustments to maintain optimum efficiency. We recommend a tune-up for your heat pump once a year. However, if your heat pump isn’t performing as it should, we provide same-day repair services. Unfortunately, many of our clients aren’t able to tell when the time has come to replace their heat pump. Whether to opt for repairs or replacement comes down to a variety of factors, but these four are the most surefire ways to make the right decision:
You or the previous owner didn’t maintain it: Regular maintenance is critical to ensuring your heat pump is in it for the long haul. Its maintenance history is one factor to consider. If you’ve kept up with regular maintenance, then repairs are the right choice. If not, it might be time to replace the heat pump.
It doesn’t work efficiently: If you notice hot spots in your home or areas that are colder than others, then your heat pump isn’t operating at peak efficiency. Sometimes, our specialists can spot the problem and perform the necessary repairs. Others, the repairs are significant, or the heat pump might continually fail. In that case, it might make better sense to purchase a new heat pump.
You’ve had repairs done recently: You shouldn’t have to call a specialist to perform regular repairs on your heat pump, which can add up. Instead of paying spiraling repair costs, invest in a new heat pump. One rule of thumb to keep in mind: If the repair costs add up to more than half the price of a replacement, it’s wise to pay for the replacement.
It’s old and has subpar performance ratings: Newer models are more energy-efficient. Not only can they reduce your environmental footprint, but they can also save you money. You’ll notice a significant difference in your monthly bills when you switch to an Energy Star-approved heat pump.
