Benefits of Installing a Heat Pump
Installing a heat pump in your house can provide many benefits. Some of the top advantages include:
- Energy-efficiency. Because these systems use a renewable energy source, they are more energy-efficient than traditional heating systems. This can result in lower utility bills.
- Government incentives. Getting a unit can qualify you for government incentives for installing a renewable heat unit. You could also be eligible for a tax rebate.
- Improved indoor air quality. This system doesn’t create smoke or add fumes to the air, resulting in better air quality in your home than if you used a forced-air unit.
- Increased safety. These units can be safer than heaters or furnaces.
- More climate control. These systems allow you to have maximum control over the interior climate in your house.
Energy-Efficient Features of Heat Pumps
While you might know heat pumps are more energy-efficient than other heating systems, you might not know how. These units use less energy by:
- Moving heat instead of generating it, which requires less energy.
- Using only a small amount of electricity to transfer hot and cold air as needed.
- Easily increasing or decreasing the temperature of a room. These units can heat or cool a room in just a few minutes.

Common Problems With Heat Pumps
Like all heating systems, from time to time your heat pump might need professional services. Some common problems it might encounter include:
- Heat pump cycles incorrectly: If the unit turns on and off too frequently, it can mean the system is overheating due to a malfunctioning blower or clogged filter.
- Malfunctioning condenser: If the condenser freezes up, the system should be turned off. A contractor can inspect it to make sure the filter isn’t clogged and the return-air registers aren’t blocked.
- Blower stops working: The blower can stop working if the air inside the plenum becomes too hot.
- Improper installation: If the system was installed incorrectly you will need a professional to correct the errors.
