Many homeowners in Phoenix have a heat pump for their swimming pool. This type of unit keeps the water at a comfortable temperature for swimming. However, heating pumps are ideal for keeping the air temperature stable in your home as well. A heat pump is efficient to run and can operate at a quarter of the cost of a normal HVAC unit. Use a heat pump and you could reduce energy usage and save money.
How the Heat Pump Works
Heat pumps transport hot air from one place to another. During the cold winter months the pump will draw warmth from outside and transfer it into the home. During the warm summer months the pump will draw the hot air from inside of the house and transfer it outside.
Get the Most out of the System
A well-maintained system will last longer and on average heat pumps last 10 – 12 years. If dirt and dust invade the system it will be forced to work much harder.
Preventative Maintenance Agreements are a good investment. Here are some simple things you can do for yourself.
Clean the fins and coils
The units have fins and coils and these components help the heat pump to function effectively. If these parts become dusty or dirty it reduces the efficiency of the heating system and forces the unit to overwork. Check that the fins and coils are kept clean and dust-free.
Changing the air filters
The air filter removes the dust particles from the indoor air as it makes its way through the HVAC system. A dirty air filter will reduce air flow and make the system work harder. Change the air filters every 30 – 60 days..
HVAC systems and landscaping
The air should be able to flow freely around the heat pumps. You may like the plants you have placed around your HVAC system but they could be obstructing the airflow. Ensure plants are planted at least eighteen inches away from your unit.
