Heat Pump Repair
As with any appliance or system in your home, maintenance is critical. When you properly maintain your heat pump, you will maximize efficiency and increase the lifespan. We recommend twice yearly professional tune-ups, but there are some tasks you can do in between maintenance appointments.
Heat Pump Maintenance Tasks for Homeowners:
- Keep the outdoor unit clear of any dirt, debris, grass clippings, and leaves.
- With light pressure, use a hose and soft brush to clear the aluminum fins on the outdoor unit of airborne debris. Be careful not to bend the fins.
- Monitor the thermostat to make sure it is working correctly. Ideally, the heat pump should turn on when the temperature dips below or above the set temp (depending on whether you are heating or cooling). The fan should run on auto.
- Most importantly, at the first sign of any issue, call Jame Thomas Heating & Cooling, the sooner we get to work fixing your heat pump, the better.
A common question we get regarding heat pumps is that the air exiting the registers feels cool even when it is set to heat. The air from the registers is heated to roughly 90 to 95 degrees, depending on the outside temperature. The temperature the heat pump expels is typically 20-25 degrees warmer than the indoor air temperature and won't have a problem heating your home. Because body temperature is 98.6, the air from the registers will feel cooler to the touch. Call us with any questions you have.
New Heat Pump Installation
How do you know if a heat pump is the right system for your house? In the summer months, it acts as an air conditioner would. During winter months, it works in reverse and heats the indoor of your home. Heat pumps do need auxiliary heat (electric heat or gas furnace) to assist them when the temperature drops below 42 degrees in the North Georgia Mountains.
Initially, the investment in a new heat pump is more than for an AC system, but you’ll benefit from a huge reduction in winter energy costs. Our experts will take into account your home’s heating and cooling needs and help you decide if a heat pump is right for you.
