Q: How do heat pumps work?
A: Heat pumps keep you comfortable by transferring heat between the inside and the outside of your home using refrigerant. In colder months, they can draw warmth from the air outside and pump it into your living spaces. In the summer, the process reverses, and the system draws in warm indoor air and cools it.
Q: How much room does a heat pump system take up?
A: Heat pumps are relatively compact. They consist of an outdoor unit and an indoor air handler. You can connect multiple air handlers to the outdoor unit via thin pipes through your wall. We can position these indoor units so that you barely notice them.
Q: How do you control a heat pump system?
A: Your heat pump system is usually controlled by a central thermostat. Our technicians will give you a primer for controlling your heat pumps after installation.
Q: Are heat pumps loud?
A: Generally, heat pumps run more quietly than forced-air heating and cooling equipment. On occasion, the refrigerant in the pipes between your indoor and outdoor units will emit a gurgling sound. But this sound is barely noticeable and not a cause for concern.
Q: How often should I change my heat pump’s air filter?
A: Just like with central air conditioners and furnace systems, it’s important to check your heat pump system’s air filters once a month during peak usage. A clogged filter will reduce the efficiency of your system. If your system has an electrostatic filter or an electronic air cleaner, you can wash it. Otherwise, you will need to replace the filter, generally after about six months.
