FAQ Heat Pumps

We can answer any questions you may have about our services or how these products work. Read a sample of commonly asked questions below.

What is HSPF?

Heating Seasonal Performance Factor(HSPF) measures the efficiency of the systems heat pumps. A higher number means a more efficient unit. 

What kind of Maintenance Does a Heat Pump Need?

The maintenance for a heat pump is similar to the regular maintenance for any HVAC equipment. The most important thing for a homeowner to do is keep the unit clean and make sure there is plenty of air flow. There are parts and safety equipment that should be checked and cleaned by a skilled HVAC technician once a year as part of regular season maintenance.

What are the components of a Heat Pump?

A heat pump consists of two main components: an indoor air handler and an outdoor unit similar to a central air conditioner, but is referred to as a heat pump. The outdoor unit contains a compressor that circulates refrigerant that absorbs and releases heat as it travels between the indoor and outdoor units.

How does a heat pump work?

Heat pumps work a lot like an air conditioner but different. The main difference is that a heat pump can be used to heat and cool your home instead of having separate units for each. Basically, a heat pump moves heat from the outside to warm your home and does the reverse in the summer to cool your home. Heat pumps can be more efficient because they transfer heat instead of burning fuel to create it which makes them more energy efficient.
