Unfortunately, Punxsutawney Phil Predicted 6 More Weeks Of Winter today. This means that making sure that your heat pump is working efficiently and is ready to take on the cold is extremely important.
Heat pump systems are an excellent option for heating and cooling homes. One of its benefits is it provides the services of both an air conditioner and a heater. It saves space and energy, and if your furnace is on its way out, you might want to consider replacing it with a heat pump system. Like any other appliance, your heat pump can have problems. Cascade Energy Services provides winter heat pump tune-up and preventative maintenance in Snohomish. We can repair your system and service it, so it runs great. Here are some things you might encounter during the winter season.
Is It Hot Enough?
Heat pumps do not blast out hot air as a furnace does, so you might think it is not producing enough heat. But these systems distribute heat more evenly throughout the home. Because they run at a more sustained level, there is less turning on and off. You won’t have cold spots and blasts of air. If you live where it is frigid, you may feel more comfortable with a supplemental heat source. CES can look over your home and help you develop a perfect solution for you.
A Frozen Heat Pump
When your outdoor unit gets iced over, the airflow is restricted. This can cause the unit to have difficulty functioning and can damage the system. Some heat pump systems have a defrosting unit that you can run. Things that can help it if you don’t have a defrost cycle are:
- Checking and replacing air filters
- Keep debris away from the unit
- No airflow may mean a malfunctioning blower motor
