If you need a heat pump installed, repaired, maintained, or replaced, call us today and schedule an appointment.

How Heat Pumps Work

A heat pump is constructed very differently from a traditional heating system. In fact, it tends to resemble an air conditioner more than a furnace. There are two units, one installed inside and one installed outside, connected by power and refrigerant lines. When in heating mode, the outside coil evaporates refrigerant to absorb thermal energy from the surrounding air. It then sends the refrigerant gas inside to the indoor unit, where it is condensed into liquid. This releases the heat into the home. Heat pumps also include a reversing valve, which allows them to change the flow of refrigerant through their systems. Heat pumps can act as either heaters or air conditioners by doing this.

Advantages of Heat Pumps

Heat pumps don’t burn fuel to generate heat, which makes them much more energy efficient than the vast majority of traditional heating systems. You’ll notice that your heating costs will decrease by quite a bit after installing a heat pump system in your home. The ability to act as both heating and air conditioning systems is also a huge benefit that other climate control systems cannot match. With a heat pump system installed in your home, you’ll never have to rely on another climate control system. These are just a few of the many advantages of using a heat pump system.

We Install, Repair, and Maintain Heat Pumps in Ashburn, VA

Installing a heat pump is something that should only ever be trusted to a professional, for a number of reasons. First and foremost, there is a good amount of electrical work involved with installing a heat pump. You should never attempt your own electrical work, as it can be incredibly dangerous if you don’t know what you’re doing. If you need to have a heat pump installed in your home, call today and we’ll take care of it for you.

Heat pumps need maintenance and repairs just as much as any other system. If you want your heat pump to last as long as possible, it’s a very good idea to schedule preventive maintenance at least once a year. This allows your technician to find and fix problems before they have the chance to damage your system. If and when a problem does present itself, though, you should call for repairs as soon as possible. Prompt repairs limit the damage to your system, which help it to last longer.
