Heat pumps are one of the most efficient and economical ways to heat and cool your home. However, they require regular maintenance and occasional repairs to keep them running well.

What does this entail? That depends on many different factors, including the age and condition of your heat pump and things like level of usage.

At Apex, we provide a range of heat pump repair and maintenance plans to accommodate every HVAC system need and personal budget. Keep reading for some heat pump basics and how Apex can help keep it running correctly.

How Does a Heat Pump Work?

The name “heat pump” can be deceptive since it provides heating and cooling to a building. Heat pumps absorb heat from outdoors and move it indoors during cold weather. During warmer months, they take heat from inside the building and move it outside.

Heat pumps use refrigerant in both applications. For cooling, warm air from the building is pulled in through intakes.

Warm air blows over evaporator coils containing refrigerant. The refrigerant absorbs the heat, sending cool air back into the building.

The heat causes the refrigerant to evaporate into a gas. It then travels to the condenser outside the building, releasing the heat outdoors.

The release of heat and pressure from the condenser causes the refrigerant to condense into a liquid. It then returns to the evaporator to restart the entire process. This process is reversed for energy-efficient home heating.

Typical Heat Pump Issues

Based on the description above, it is easy to see how many issues can arise from these complex processes. Some typical ones include low airflow, which could be related to blowers, and damaged or clogged ductwork. Leaks in refrigerant lines or dirty evaporator or condenser coils can hamper the heating or cooling.

The motor or many components running the compressor can cause any number of issues. Homes experience thermostat issues, clogged air filters, and power issues.
