How Do Heat Pumps Work?

Heat pumps extract heat from the air or the ground outside the home and transfer it indoors. In the warmer months, this process can be reversed to provide efficient cooling.

There are two main types of heat pumps: air-source, in which refrigerant-filled coils are used to heat or cool extracted heat; and geothermal, where heat is transferred between the home and a water source such as groundwater.

The Benefits of Heat Pumps

Heat pumps are a great way to save on your utility costs. They can supply both heating and cooling within your home or building. This is more efficient than having to purchase two separate units.

You can also save on maintenance costs with a heat pump. Most traditional furnaces need to be maintained annually to ensure efficiency. If you have a heat pump, one annual service takes care of all of your preventative maintenance needs. Heat pumps also work well to dehumidify a space.

What are the Energy Efficient Features?

Heat pumps prove energy efficient since they use heat that already exists in the ground or in the air rather than using energy to create it. Energy bills are often reduced by an average of 30-40 percent when traditional furnaces are replaced with heat pumps.

For further energy efficiency, many heat pumps come with a desuperheater that collects leftover heat and transfers it to the water in the home. The most energy efficient heat pump is a geothermal system; these use groundwater as a heat source and prove to be more efficient in colder climates than your average air-source heat pump.

What are Common Problems with Heat Pumps?

One of the most common problems with heat pumps is their propensity to collect frost and ice. To compensate for this, most heat pumps are built with a defrost cycle. Other common problems include odd noises (such as clanging sounds), complete unit failure, and the auxiliary light remaining on. If you notice these problems or more, contact your Pipe Wrench technician for immediate service. We will help you get your heat pump back to normal in no time and guarantee your satisfaction!

What Our Customers Are Saying

"Adam Bunch and Salwan were our technicians. They were very professional, courteous, thorough, and we feel they did a very good job. They were both very personable, friendly, and genuinely take pride in their profession. We feel very confident in the work that they did. We have an older home built in the mid 1980s with old, failing hex water lines along with some copper fittings. We needed new lines installed and they did a good job with it. I would recommend them to other people. In comparison, the price is more expensive than some other businesses in this area for the same work, but we feel that the guarantee that comes with Pipe Wrench work brings accountability. We will use this service again in the future."

Amy C.

"Very timely. The first time I used this service I had a thermostat replaced in my hot water heater. They were quick and professional and was fairly priced. I'm in the middle of my second experience at a relatives home for hot water heater replacement. They were able to get a tech out for evaluation the same day we called (today) about a problem and have scheduled the replacement for the next day. The tech was polite, professional and advised us of all our options in a way that was easily understood. I highly recommend Pipe Wrench services."

Sasha N.

"Ryan and Tyler were fantastic! As soon as they got to our home they set expectations for all the work they were going to perform. They kept us posted on the status of the job throughout the time they were working and reviewed everything with us when the job was complete. They were professional, knowledgeable, and nice. I would highly recommend them and the team at Pipe Wrench for any plumbing needs! Although I hope we won't have to use their services again, if we ever have the need for a plumber in the future, they will be the first people we call!"

Katey M.

"They came on time with texts and calls ahead of time to ensure I knew who was coming (with a picture) and when they'd be there. Kyle was professional, personable and didn't try to sell me more than I needed. He worked with the scheduling to get me scheduled that evening, even though I couldn't be there for the install. The installation was prompt and they were clean (again with forewarning and pictures of who was coming). They are my new go to company. Thank you."

Mary W.

"Our technician showed up on time and very professional. This company never tried to take advantage of my older mom. Which some in the past have. Very thorough in explaining everything he did and the cost. They came the very next morning. My mom’s A/C had gone out the day before on a scorching hot day and week. I would highly recommend this company. Very good people."
