Can I Install My Own Heat Pump?

February 3rd, 2020

hand-holding-wrenchIf you ask, “Can I install my own heat pump?”, the best response is another question: “Could you install your own central air conditioning system?” And not a window unit: a large central cooling system, with an outdoor cabinet, fixed on a large concrete slab and an indoor air handler and evaporator hooked up to the ventilation system.

Your answer is probably no. Well, a heat pump is almost the same as a central air conditioner. It may be able to change the direction it operates so it can provide heat to a home as well as cooling, but the configuration of parts and how they integrate with the house exterior and interior are identical.

So no, you can’t install your own heat pump.

How Long Can a New Heat Pump Installation Last?

January 20th, 2020

heat-pumpsWhen it comes to HVAC in Trinity, FL, the heat pump is one of the best systems to install. A heat pump is a combination of an air conditioning system and heating system in one. As an air conditioner, it’s the match of any standard AC of the same size—and that’s terrific for handling the hot Florida summer weather. As a heater, it has much better energy efficiency than electric furnaces. A heat pump can struggle in extremely cold weather, but that’s never an issue here!

If you have a heat pump in your home, you’ll want to know how long you can expect it to run. There is no single answer that applies in all cases, but we can give you some benchmarks.

Advice on What Not to Do With Your Heat Pump

January 6th, 2020

air-conditioning-ductlessHeat pumps are a great way to provide central heating and cooling for a home, especially in the climate we enjoy in Tampa Bay. A heat pump works as a powerful air conditioner during hot weather, the equal of any standalone AC system. When the short cold days arrive, a heat pump changes over to an energy-efficient heater that won’t drain the same amount of power as a furnace.

But when it comes to operating a heat pump, user error can still end up lowering system effectiveness. We’re going to look at a few things you shouldn’t do with a heat pump. These are even more important if you’ve only recently switched to heat pump use or added a ductless heat pump as part of your HVAC system.

Problems With Broken Ductless Heating Units

December 23rd, 2019

ductless-mini-splitUsing a ductless mini split heat pump for your winter warmth is one of the best methods available—especially in Florida, where the energy efficiency of a heat pump is an ideal match for our mild winters.

Ducts can be the source of several heating and AC problems, and with a ductless mini split, they simply vanish.

But not all problems leading to heating repair in Clearwater, FL vanish along with the ducts. During the winter, you may encounter broken ductless heating units. We’re going to take a look into some of these problems, how they happen, and what can be done about them.
