Quality Heat Pump Repair and Replacement in Concord

Not only can an electric heat pump warm your home in Concord, it can cool it too. When stacked up against conventional heating systems—like a gas furnace—you’ll also likely have a reduced heating and cooling bill.

Heat pumps function with an air handler, which distributes air throughout your home. While an air handler might look like a furnace, it doesn’t make heat through fuel combustion. However, some air handler models may have secondary electric heating or cooling parts to assist the heat pump.

When you need heat pump service or heat pump repair, call ARIEL HVAC SOLUTIONS. We can repair any type of heat pump. Our technicians are NATE-certified, which means they are among the best in the HVAC industry when it comes to heating and cooling.

Poor Maintenance Can Cost You

A poorly maintained system can cost you. On average, an ignored heat pump can consume 10 to 25 percent more energy, according to the U.S. Department of Energy. It’s also more likely to break down or have a shorter life span.

When your HVAC system isn’t providing the best home heating or isn’t working in a reliable manner, try our troubleshooting guide below.

  • No heat.Check your thermostat is positioned to “on” and “heat.” Next, make sure a circuit breaker hasn’t tripped. Recently replaced your thermostat? Make sure it’s a model compatible with heat pumps and wired correctly.
  • Insufficient heat.Clogged filters, fan and coils can reduce airflow and harm your system. Swap your filter once a month, clean the unit’s coils and fan, and clear yard debris that may have accumulated around it. Your system may also have blocked air ducts, faulty valves or poor refrigeration flow.
  • Cold air instead of heat.Air from a heat pump won’t be as hot as a forced air furnace. But if the air still seems too crisp, set the thermostat to emergency heat and at least 5 degrees above the ambient temperature. If you get warm air, there may be trouble with your outdoor unit. Cold air means there’s probably an issue with your thermostat or air handler. Your system may have also gone into defrost mode to avoid icing up. If you see frost or ice on the outdoor coil, your unit may have a defective defrost timer or control module, or it could be low on refrigerant.
  • Heat pump turns on and off frequently.Change your air filter and then look at your thermostat, because it may need to be adjusted or need new batteries. If it’s cold and your system is on constantly, the thermostat may be set too high. Also, some heat pumps don’t work well around 25 to 30 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Rattling, grinding or squealing noises.If you hear rattling, try tightening the cover panels. If you hear grinding or squealing, turn off your system and get in touch with ARIEL HVAC SOLUTIONS This could indicate a serious problem.
