What’s Wrong with My Heat Pump?

Monday, July 16th, 2018

condenserHeat pumps are a great option for homeowners interested in enjoying year-round comfort with great energy efficiency.  They operate just like central air conditioners in the summer, meaning that they evaporate refrigerant in order to remove heat from the air in your home during the summer season. In the winter, this process is reversed. Refrigerant evaporates in the outdoor unit, absorbing heat before being compressed to boost its thermal energy, which is then used to heat the interior living space.

Your heat pump is going to put in a lot of working hours over the course of the year. While routine maintenance can address much of the wear and tear that it will incur, it cannot make your heat pump 100% reliable. Nothing will. Eventually, you will find yourself in need of heat pump repair in Charlottesville, VA. If and when you do, be sure to dial our number in order to guarantee that your system is put back on the right track, the right way, the first time.
