Heat Pump

Install an energy-efficient heat pump into your Rochester home!

Not all houses and businesses are set up for furnaces and air conditioners. In such cases, a heat pump provides an ideal solution! Essentially, a heat pump reallocates heat where it is needed. In cold weather, your heat pump will extract the warmth from the outside air and transfer it into your home. In warm weather, the heat pump does the same thing, but instead pulls the warm air out of your home and sends it outdoors! This does not consume fossil fuel to create heat and instead manipulates internal/external temperature differences to your liking.

FAQs

How long does a heat pump usually last? 
Generally, a heat pump will last about 15 years depending on the amount it is used and how well it is maintained. 

Can I just repair my heat pump by myself?
It is important to always have a professional help with heat pump repairs. Shock or electrocution are possible since these units run on a 240 volt circuit. 

Tips for getting the most out of your heat pump

  • Set heat pump to a comfortable level and leave it be. Heat pumps are designed to maintain a steady temperature and in some cases it may be a higher number than you’re used to.
  • Set heat pump to “Heat” in the winter and “Cool” in the summer. Try to avoid the “Auto” setting as this could trick the system into producing heat on a cold night in the summer or cool on a sunny winter day.
  • Keep dust filters clean by vacuuming or rinsing them. Dust off filters whenever they are visibly dirty or the indicator light appears.
  • Clean allergen cartridges. (Some pumps don’t have these.)
  • Keep outdoor unit clear from sticks, leaves, snow, and other debris.
  • Avoid ice build-ups on outdoor unit by making sure water from the roof is not falling onto the unit. 
  • Clean outdoor unit every year or two.
  • Gurgling or clicking noises may be normal. 
  • Check the user manual when you notice indicator lights.
