What is a Heat Pump?

A heat pump is the smarter, cleaner way to heat, cool, dehumidify and purify the air in your home, and it’s an all-in-one replacement for your existing HVAC systems. It’s called a heat pump because it controls your home’s climate by redistributing the heat that’s already in the air. In the winter, it extracts heat from the outside environment and moves it inside your home. In the summer, the process is reversed: The heat pump takes heat from inside your home and moves it outside. The result? Your home feels great all year. It’s a pretty simple concept that adds up to comfortable and energy-efficient climate control.

If you're interested in installing a heat pump into your Columbus, OH area home, call us today or get a free online estimate! We offer quality equipment from top brands in the industry.

Major components of a heat pump system:

  • Outdoor unit with a coil that acts as a condenser in cooling mode and an evaporator in heating mode
  • Indoor unit that contains a coil (just like the outdoor unit) and a fan to move the air through your home
  • Refrigerant that absorbs and releases the heat as it circulates through the system
  • Compressor that pressurizes the refrigerant
  • Reversing valve that changes the direction of the refrigerant in the system, to enable the shift between heating and cooling
  • Expansion valve that regulates the flow of refrigerant through the system

“Should I Replace My Heat Pump?”

If you’re not sure whether to replace your dual HVAC system or go ahead and pay for the repairs, we outline below the top factors you should consider in making this sometimes challenging decision:

4 Factors to Consider Before Replacing or Repairing Your Heat Pump:

  • Energy Efficiency

    Often, home systems that are more than 10 years old are outdated in terms of energy efficiency, so your current heat pump could be costing more on your utility bills. Pay attention to the SEER rating.

    What is the SEER Rating? SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) is an important factor you should take into consideration to optimize your buying experience. Essentially, SEER is a rating, comparable to the miles per gallon you’d get with a certain car. Higher MPG means you spend less money on fuel.

  • Budget

    Keep in mind that installing a heat pump replaces both your AC and furnace. To make this determination, you will have to crunch the numbers and see what you can afford. When you balance the cost to repair or replace a heat pump, usually the repair has a lower upfront price tag. However, rebates and special offers, combined with your potential savings on fuel bills, can turn heat pump replacement into a much more budget-friendly option.

  • Unit’s Age

    When a heat pump gets older than 10 years old, it might be time to begin planning for replacement. Having said that, it’s obvious there are more factors than just age, but this can be a good guide to whether you should start contemplating something new or not. Factors you should consider with age are the unit’s reliability, its history and efficiency, and how well it has been maintained over the years.

  • Cost of Repairs

    This is usually one of the biggest factors to look at when considering something new. Many HVAC experts recommend getting a new unit if the repair is more than $800. However, if the system is only 6 years old or newer, $800 doesn’t seem to be that bad of an investment to squeeze a few more years of life out of your system. With this in mind, it’s good to look at both the age and the cost of the repair. If the home cooling system is more than 10 years old and it’s going to cost more than $800 to repair you should take a serious look at replacing the unit. Furthermore, there’s also the 50% Rule: When the cost of repairs approaches 50% of the value of the unit, it’s usually recommended you should replace the system.

Warranty Information

If you’re having heat pump issues, it’s important to determine whether your system is covered by a warranty because it could cover the cost for repairs. Usually, newer equipment is likely covered by warranty from the system’s manufacturer. Most manufacturers offer customers a minimum of a 5 to 10-year limited factory warranty on the parts, which typically includes the compressor. Additionally, some HVAC contractors (like Blacklick Heating & Cooling) offer labor warranties for a set term following the initial installation that cover defects associated with their work.

  • “Does My Heat Pump Have a Warranty?”

    Check your manual and all documents you got after your system was installed. If a warranty was included with the purchase, the information for it should be included with this paperwork so you can check its terms.

    A lot of equipment manufacturers provide a warranty lookup feature on their websites. You will probably need the serial number from your unit to use to look the relevant information up. If the above paperwork isn’t handy, the serial number can be located on the rating plate of the equipment — which is usually visible on the exterior of the cooling equipment.

    Give your HVAC contractor a call for assistance with warranty information. Whichever company you purchased the equipment from may have your system’s air conditioner warranty information available.

  • “I Recently Purchased a Home, Should I Have a Warranty?”

    A new home’s HVAC system is often a selling point for a lot of potential homebuyers, making system warranty protection a crucial piece of information. The original purchaser of the air conditioner should have registered the unit to get the warranty activated. However, sometimes this warranty coverage does not transfer to new owners with the purchase of the home.

    Some HVAC equipment manufacturers, on the other hand, do allow heat pump or A/C warranties to transfer to new homeowners after a sale. If so, it’s usually required that this transfer be done within a certain time frame after the home is sold.
