Delivering Heating & AC in One Efficient System
A heat pump is a great solution for your home's comfort in our climate. That's because heat pumps offer a hybrid solution delivering both heating and cooling. Whether it's the hottest day of the summer or the coldest day of winter, heat pumps provide your family with premium comfort.
We recommend heat pumps because they:
- Are extremely energy efficient to help keep your monthly energy bills low all year long
- Can cut heating bills up to 40% over traditional systems
- Operate quietly compared to other types of heating and air conditioning systems
- Are excellent at regulating humidity and maintaining a healthy humidity level for your indoor air
If you are interested in installing a heat pump or already have one and need it repaired, turn to the experts at Black Hills. Our team is eager to help you take advantage of the many benefits that heat pumps have to offer.
Common Heat Pump Problems
Heat pumps essentially combine the functions of a heater and an air conditioner
into one, resulting in a more efficient means of conditioning the air
in your home. They work especially well in climates like ours, where the
winters are fairly mild and homeowners have HVAC needs throughout the
year. But just like any other appliance, heat pumps can experience problems
requiring the services of a trained professional to correct. Here’s
a quick breakdown of common heat pump problems.
Heat pumps use the same basic technology as air conditioners, which means their problems are pretty much the same. One common development is a leak in refrigerant gas, which can interfere with the heat pump’s ability to generate cool (and warm) air. Refrigerant needs to be at a specific level if the heat pump is to work the way it should. When those levels are out of balance, frost forms on the evaporator coils, representing lost cooling potential and further hampering the pump’s ability to do its job. Simply scraping the frost off won’t fix the problem: the source of the leak needs to be sealed and refrigerant levels recharged before the system will function again.
Other problems are a little easier to grasp. For example, the fan motor can overheat, shutting the fan down and preventing the heat pump from moving conditioned air into your home. Clogs and blockages can form in various lines, preventing water from draining or keeping air from moving where it’s supposed to. Dust and dirt can build up to create friction between moving parts and eventually create breakdowns within individual components.
All of these have the same thing in common: repair bills, inefficiency and loss of heating and cooling just when you need it the most. To correct common heat pump problems, the heating system repair technicians at Black Hills, Inc. are experienced and trained with all different types of heat pump systems. They will be able to fix the problem and get your system up and running again before you know it.
