What is heat pump technology?

You may not be familiar with heat pumps, but they are the second most common heating appliance in the U.S. and are quickly becoming more common for space and water heaters in homes. Instead of creating heat, heat pumps operate more efficiently by capturing heat from the surrounding air and transferring it through a refrigeration and compression cycle to the desired temperature to heat or cool your home or provide hot water. Even if you live in a colder climate, heat pumps can deliver energy-efficient and cost-effective comfort for your home.

The Benefits of Heat Pump Technology

Water Heating

  • 3x (or more) the efficiency of conventional gas or electric water heaters
  • Can be programmed to heat water when energy rates are lower and store it to provide hot water when you want it
  • Reduces harmful emissions from the burning of fossil fuels in gas powered appliances


  • Provides both heating and cooling all in a single unit
  • Provides cleaner and healthier indoor air quality with no harmful emissions
  • Uses less energy than conventional gas or electric heaters

What are the Signs You Need Heat Pump Repair?

Several signs indicate that your heat pump might need repair. Here are some common ones:

  • Reduced Heating or Cooling Performance: If your heat pump isn't heating or cooling your home effectively, it could indicate a problem with the compressor, refrigerant levels, or another component.
  • Strange Noises: Unusual noises such as grinding, squealing, or banging could indicate issues with the fan motor, compressor, or other mechanical parts.
  • Increased Energy Bills: A sudden increase in your energy bills without a corresponding increase in usage could indicate that your heat pump is working harder than usual due to a malfunction.
  • Frequent Cycling On and Off: If your heat pump is constantly cycling on and off, it could be a sign of a malfunctioning thermostat, improper sizing, or an issue with the compressor.
  • Ice Buildup on the Outdoor Unit: Ice buildup on the outdoor unit during winter months could indicate a problem with the defrost cycle or insufficient airflow.
  • Airflow Issues: Insufficient airflow or uneven heating/cooling throughout your home could indicate problems with the blower motor, ductwork, or air filters.
  • Leaks or Moisture Around the Unit: Any signs of leaks or moisture around the indoor or outdoor unit could indicate a refrigerant leak or drainage issue.
  • Unusual Odors: Strange odors such as burning smells could indicate an electrical issue or overheating components.
  • Thermostat Problems: If your thermostat isn't responding correctly or if there are discrepancies between the set temperature and the actual temperature in your home, it could indicate a problem with the thermostat or the heat pump itself.
  • Age of the System: If your heat pump is reaching the end of its expected lifespan (usually around 10-15 years), it may start experiencing more frequent issues and repairs may become necessary.

If you notice any of these signs, it's essential to have your heat pump inspected and repaired by a qualified HVAC technician to prevent further damage and ensure optimal performance.
