Efficient Heat Pump Repairs
Your heating is one of the most important parts of the comfort and security that you and your family depend on from your home. And during the winters in North Carolina, having a fully functioning heating system can often be a matter of safety. If you’re using a heat pump to heat your home, it’s very important that it’s kept in excellent condition. Heat pumps can also be used to remove heat from your home during the summer. So throughout the year, keeping your heat pump in good condition is a necessity. If you’ve noticed your heat pump isn’t working at its best, the heat pump repair specialists at SHA Mechanical INC can help.
Heat Pump Efficiency
Heat pumps are one of the most efficient forms of heating there is, but that does come wit ha small catch. They only use a small percentage of the energy course (gas, electricity, etc.) to create heat. Most of the heat produced by a heat pump is found externally, outside in the ground and air, then pumped into the colder parts of your home. Using less energy to be more effective means that you’ll spend less on your heating bills. But because the heat pump extracts its heat from outdoors, it’s most effective down to about 45°.
When the weather is colder than that, you’ll probably need to supplement your heat pump with some other heating unit. In colder regions, actually, heat pumps are often only used in conjunction with other heating units to help them run more efficiently.
Regardless of the temperature outside, if your heat pump is having any problems, it will run less efficiently, and it will be less effective. Which means that you’ll be paying more for your energy costs.
Heat Pump Inspections
Any problems with your heat pump need to be caught and taken care of as soon as possible after they develop. Otherwise, the energy efficiency of the heat pump and your home can rapidly decline, and you’ll need to have much more expensive and complex repairs performed down the line. If you’re using a supplemental heat source, you may have difficulty determining whether your heat pump or the other unit is malfunctioning. Our professionals can give your heating system a full inspection and help you determine exactly where the inefficiency is stemming from and the best way to move forward.
Our heat pump repair specialists will respond as quickly as possible to all requests for service. We know how important your heating is to you and your family. So when you have a heating problem, you can count on us to repair as quickly and as professionally as possible.
