While many of us take vacations or travel, a large chunk of our lives is inevitably spent indoors. Whether we are watching TV, reading, resting or cooking, having a constant supply of fresh air is important. Installing the right heat, ventilation and air conditioning system is the first step, but maintenance and care of the heat pumps is also important. Often early detection of faulty pumps or repair can save you a lot of money and time. A well maintained unit is important for a comfortable living condition, and one way to go about it is to ensure that you conduct timely checks on the pipes and installations. If you are unaware of what to look for or watch out for, call in the experts for timely maintenance checks.
A well maintained heat pump will ensure that the energy consumption and cost are at a minimum. Qualified licensed contractors are available to assist you with this process. Finding the right people are important, so you can receive help immediately when you require it. The lack of regular repair and maintenance can seriously impair the quality of air in your home, leading to dust accumulation, clogged pipes, and faulty heating and cooling mechanisms in the heat pump.
Heat pumps work on a very simple principle, they deposit or transfer heat from the inside of the house to outside during summer, and vice versa in winter to maintain optimum temperatures. With geothermal heat pumps, this is done by directly transferring heat from the earth. This is a very eco-friendly option and is also one that is highly cost effective in the long run. They work on minimal amount of electricity and can be easily maintained from time to time with the help of experts.
Ensure that you have the right thermal envelop and also consider opting for a backup system (other than the earth) like a water source, which will help you save energy costs and also space when installing heat pumps in your home. Ensure that your outdoor unit is mounted well above the ground level and well insulated to so airflow is unrestricted, and also to ensure it doesn’t get snowed in. If the evaporator gets plugged with snow, it will considerably hamper the performance of your heat pump.

A licensed and experienced person will take you through the process in detail and explain every aspect of it to you well before installation.
