Choose Clean Heat!
Gain a better understanding of heat pumps and how they provide year-round comfort.
Do you LOVE the concept of clean heat but just can’t quite wrap your head around how a heat pump actually works? You aren’t alone, despite all the talk about converting to a more energy efficient HVAC system, many people don’t really understand the mechanics of how a heat pump can keep you warm in the winter and cool in the summer. We’d like to help you gain a better understand of heat pumps so you can make an educated decision when it comes to updating your HVAC system.

What is a heat pump?
A heat pump offers a high efficiency state-of-the-art electric technology that is designed to keep you warm in the winter and cool in the summer. In technical terms, it’s a reversible, mechanical-compression cycle refrigeration system installed outside the home to extract and redistribute air.

OK…but how does it work?
A heat pump is a single unit that is installed outside your home and will act as both a heater and an air conditioner. It draws heat from the environment and during the winter it moves the energy indoors to heat and during the summer, it moves the energy outdoors to cool.

Traditional units take air and with cooling and heating elements, use fuel to change the temperature of the air before sending it out. While a heat pump requires electricity to run, it delivers more energy than it uses by concentrating and moving heat rather than generating it.

Leave it to the professionals!
When your heating system doesn’t seem to be working as well as it should, it may be tempting to see if you can figure out and solve the problem on your own. Especially if you are handy. Before you grab your toolbox, we would like to encourage you to leave any repair of your HVAC system to the professionals.

We aren’t just saying this because we want you to give us a call – although it would be our pleasure to help! We do have a few reasons that it may be a really good idea to bring in a professional before you tinker with your furnace.

  • It Preserves Your WarrantyIf you have a system that is under warranty, it likely contains conditions that requires all repairs to be made by a certified technician. Attempting to repair your system yourself could void your warranty!

  • You Could Create Another Problem – You may be able to get your heat up and running again, but in doing so you could also unknowingly cause damage to some of your system’s important parts during the process. In the end you could end up trading one problem for another.

  • HVAC Systems Are Complicated – Even if you are good with your hands and can fix almost anything, today’s HVAC systems are complicated. Even a skilled mechanic that has a basic understanding of how a furnace works most likely won’t have the kind of specialized training the technicians at WK Mechanical do.
