What is a heat pump?

A piece of equipment that transfers heat energy from one location to another is called a heat pump. It can be used for heating or cooling, depending on the application. 

Heat pumps are typically used in residential and commercial applications to provide year-round temperature control. There are two main types available which are air-source and ground-source. Air-source heat pumps use the outside air as a source of heat energy, while ground-source heat pumps transfer heat energy from the ground. They are known for transferring heat energy from a lower temperature to a higher temperature. In the summer, this process is reversed, and the heat pump can be used for cooling.

Heat pumps are highly efficient and can save homeowners and businesses money on their energy bills. However, like any mechanical system, they require regular maintenance and service to keep them running smoothly.

Which Heat pump is best for you?

Both types of heat pumps have their own advantages and disadvantages:

Air source heat pumps take heat from the air outside and use it to warm your home. They can be used in all types of properties and are usually the most cost-effective type of heat pump.

Ground source heat pumps take heat from the ground beneath your property. They are more expensive to install than air source heat pumps but are more efficient and have lower running costs. Ground source heat pumps can be used in both new builds and existing properties.

Unexpected sounds from your heat pump

If you're hearing strange noises coming from your heat pump, it could be an indication that something is wrong. In some cases, the issue may be a simple fix, like loose screws or debris in the unit. 

However, if the noise is accompanied by other signs of trouble, like decreased heating or cooling capacity, it's best to call a professional for diagnosis and repair.

What is included in a heat pump service?

As the weather starts to warm up, you may be thinking about scheduling a heat pump service. 

Your heat pump puts a lot of effort into keeping your house pleasant all year. In the summer, it moves heat from your home into the outdoors, and in the winter, it does the reverse. Because your heat pump has to work overtime during extreme temperatures, it’s important to have it serviced regularly.

A typical heat pump service includes:

  1. Inspecting and cleaning the coils
  2. Cleaning or replacing the air filter
  3. Checking refrigerant levels and topping off if needed
  4. Lubricating moving parts
  5. Inspecting electrical components and connections
  6. Tightening bolts and screws

You may also want to consider having your ductwork inspected and cleaned as part of your heat pump service. This is especially important if you have pets or allergies, as pet hair and dust can build up in your ducts and cause problems with your heat pump’s performance.

Maintenance tips for your heat pump 

First and foremost, you need to make sure that your heat pump or Vaillant air source heat pump is regularly serviced by a professional. This will ensure that it stays in good working condition and doesn't break down when you need it the most.

Second, you should always keep an eye on the refrigerant levels in your heat pump. If they get too low, it can cause serious damage to the unit.

Finally, don’t forget to clean your filters. Dirty filters can limit airflow and make the appliance overheat. 

At Clean Heat Solutions, we offer heat pump maintenance services to help get your heating system up and running in no time.
