What Happens When Your Heat Pump Goes Bad?

A heat pump is part of a mechanical-compression cycle refrigeration system that we install for both heating and cooling purposes. The pump circulates warm air from one location to another. Which direction the pump moves the air depends on the temperature outside (or the temperature needed inside the building). When it’s cold outside the pump takes the air and converts it to warm air before pushing inside the house. When it’s warm outside, the pump removes the warm air so that the AC unit can produce cold. It is the most vital component in your heating and cooling system. So, as you might guess, when the heat pump goes bad, it cripples the rest of the equipment.

Residential Boilers: A Short Buying Guide

Boilers are a standard heating system in both residential and commercial properties. Although different types of boilers offer a wide range of features, they mostly perform the same function.

Get Your Ductwork Inspected for a Healthier Home

If you’re suffering from sinus or respiratory problems, then it could be due to dirty ductwork in your heating and air conditioning system. Each day, air continuously flows throughout your home. As it passes through the air ducts it both drops off and collects contaminants, allergens, and tiny dirt particles. Although the air filter in your HVAC system is designed to capture these pollutants, many of them still pass through, go into the unit and are cycled back through the air ducts once again. This happens day after day.
