With summers that are hot and humid, and winters that can be quite cold, homes in the St. Louis area require quality air conditioning and heating systems to remain comfortable year-round. Capable of providing both heating and cooling, heat pumps are an efficient and cost-effective way to keep your home at the perfect temperature.
Like an air conditioning system, heat pumps use refrigerant to absorb heat from your home during the summer and release it outdoors. In the winter, the cycle is reversed, extracting heat from the outside air and delivering it inside. They are less costly than installing separate heating and cooling systems, and because most operate on electricity only, they are perfect for homes lacking natural gas.
At Classic Aire Care, we offer a variety of heat pump services, including heat pump repair, maintenance, installation and replacement. Our service experts can quickly diagnose and repair any heat pump problem, and we offer 24-hour emergency heat pump repair service for problems that occur outside of business hours.

Choosing a Heat Pump for Your St. Louis Home
Heat pumps offer many benefits for St. Louis homeowners, including:
- High energy efficiency
- Single system for both heating and cooling
- Long service life of 15 to 20 years or more
Heat pumps feature two energy efficiency ratings, the HSPF for heating and the SEER for cooling. The best models have an HSPF of 8 or above and a SEER of 19 or above. Choosing a higher-efficiency heat pump will cost more initially, but it will save you money on utility costs over the system’s lifetime.
In colder temperatures, heat pumps become less efficient for heating and must rely on supplemental heat, such as expensive electric resistance heating. The latest models offer improved low-temperature performance, however, and for extremely cold temperatures, dual fuel systems are available that add a furnace as supplemental heat.
At Classic Aire Care, our team can help you choose the perfect heat pump system for your home, according to your needs and your budget.
