What is a Heat Pump?
Your heat pump is a component of your central air system that connects with the indoor air handler to provide heat and cooling throughout your home. The heat pump uses refrigerant to transfer heat either inside your home or to the outside air. The addition or subtraction of heat in your home’s air results in either warmer or cooler temperatures.
Typically, when a heat pump reaches 15-20 years old, it has reached its life expectancy, and it’s time to think about a replacement. If your heat pump has lost power, or you find that you are having to make frequent repairs, your heat pump should be replaced.
Common Heat Pump Repairs
Some damages and wear to your heat pump will only require repairs. If your air is not as cool as it once was, you may be low on refrigerant or have a refrigerant leak.
