What Is a Heat Pump?
Heat pumps are some of the most efficient heating and cooling systems on the market. They are efficient because they do not have to generate the heat or cold—the systems just pull the temperature needed from outside to the correct area inside the home. The idea is that they can generate heat with electricity for approximately a quarter of the price of an electric resistance system or oil system.
The three types of heat pumps are air-to-air, geothermal, and water-source. The most commonly used system is the air-to-air system, which comes in a duct or ductless variations and is a split system (one part inside, one part outside the home).
One of the nicest things about a heat pump is the ability to customize it to your needs. There are extra features you can add, which will make heat pump installation easy and give you the best options for your unique situation.

Maintenance for Heat Pumps
Heat pumps generally last anywhere from 10-15 years, if you have a heat pump close to that year range, you may want to look into having it replaced because repairs can only do so much for an old system. After your heat pump installation, there are a few maintenance things you should know to keep your heat pump running at full efficiency throughout the year.
- It is very important to change your filter once a month or to keep an eye on it and change it when needed. A blocked filter can lead to poor indoor air quality (think: dust, dirt, allergens, possible mold growth)
- Make sure to clean the coils in both the outside and inside splits of the system
- Turn off the power to the heat pump and clean off the fan
- Check the outside unit to make sure there aren’t any plants or wildlife growing around the unit
Taking care of your heat pump can make sure it works well and lasts longer, which is why you should have a technician come out at least once a year—but we recommend twice. A technician visiting in the fall and spring can help you keep serious issues at bay and help avoid costly replacements.
