How a Heat Pump Works

Using only electricity, heat pumps are capable of both heating and cooling your St. Louis home. They feature a compressor that pressurizes and pumps a refrigerant through a closed loop between the evaporator inside your home and the condenser outside.

In cooling mode, the heat pump functions just like an air conditioner, using the refrigerant in the evaporator to absorb heat as the liquid refrigerant changes to a gas. Air from your home is blown over the evaporator during this process, losing its heat and leaving your home cool and comfortable. The refrigerant then releases the heat outside at the condenser, where the outside air carries the heat away, and the refrigerant condenses back to a liquid.

In the winter, the process is reversed, with the outdoor condenser functioning as an evaporator. As liquid refrigerant expands to a gas in the outdoor unit, heat is extracted from the outdoor air. The refrigerant then carries this heat inside, where it’s released as the refrigerant condenses back to a liquid. Air blown over the indoor coils absorbs the heat, leaving your home warm.

Because heat pumps are simply moving heat from one place to the other, rather than burning a fuel to create it, they are very efficient compared to conventional boilers or furnaces.

Choosing the Right Heat Pump

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.

Heat Pump Maintenance

One of the best ways to prevent breakdowns and inconvenient service calls is through routine maintenance. You should have your heat pump serviced twice a year (once before heating season and once before cooling season). This can help spot potential problems early, avoid breakdowns, improve efficiency, and extend the system’s service life. Typical maintenance for a heat pump includes:

  • Cleaning the condenser and evaporator coils
  • Changing the air filter and cleaning the air handler
  • Cleaning the condensate drain and drip tray
  • Inspecting refrigerant lines and checking refrigerant levels
  • Inspecting electrical wires, relays, terminals, and contacts
  • Inspecting the compressor and testing its current draw
  • Measuring blower motor current
  • Lubricating bearings, pulleys, and other moving components
  • Testing the thermostat and verifying settings

At Classic Aire Care, we offer complete maintenance services for heat pumps, as well as a selection of planned maintenance agreements that can make the process easy and affordable. Contact us today to schedule your maintenance visit!

Heat Pump Frequently Asked Questions

Heat pumps work extremely efficiently in hot weather. In cold weather, heat pumps become less efficient for heating and must rely on supplemental heat, such as expensive electric resistance heating. Generally, heat pumps are effective down to 25 to 30 degrees Fahrenheit. However, the latest models offer improved low-temperature performance, and for extremely cold temperatures, dual-fuel systems are available that add a furnace as supplemental heat.

With proper maintenance, heat pumps can last around 15 to 20 years before replacement becomes necessary.

There are many possible causes for a heat pump that won’t turn on. Some of the most common are faulty thermostats and tripped circuit breakers. If you can’t identify the problem yourself, call a professional for troubleshooting and a quick diagnosis.
