Offering Top-Rated Heat Pump Service from Jupiter to Boca Raton, FL

Many Floridians already know the value of heat pumps in South Florida. Heat pumps may face problems in states with constant freezing, blizzard-like weather, but for an area with occasional, moderate heating needs, heat pumps are perfect because they can both heat and cool your home.

Experts are concerned as U.S. heatwaves become the norm, the rush to install air conditioners will create even more heat. But heat pumps are more energy-efficient because they don’t generate heat. Instead, they pull warmth from the outside air and move it inside (or vice versa in summer).

There are several kinds of heat pumps:

  • Air-source
  • Gas (for buildings or homes over 4,000 square feet)
  • Geothermal
  • Hybrid
  • Mini-split
  • Solar
  • Water source

The heating and cooling professionals at Hopkins Air Conditioning have over 45 years of South Florida HVAC (heating, ventilation, air conditioning) experience.

 

HEAT PUMP Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Your Palm Beach County heat pump needs a maintenance tune-up at least every year. (Some homeowners prefer fall and spring.) We’ll send reminders and schedule it at your convenience.

Heat pump maintenance includes:

  • Confirming refrigerant charge/leaks
  • Diagnosing/sealing any duct leaks
  • Ensuring correct thermostat operations
  • Examining belts
  • Inspecting ducts, filters, blower, indoor coils
  • Inspecting electric terminals
  • Lubricating motors
  • Validating electric control (making sure heating is locked out when cooling is required and vice versa)
  • Verifying adequate airflow

You’ll love the efficiency of a home heat pump! It’s the best choice for Floridians, but they’re trending everywhere. The average life expectancy of a heat pump is 15 years, but when well-maintained, it can last 20 years.

Heat Pump Repairs

Some of the most common heat pump repairs are:

  • Electrical: This is the most common problem, and it’s typically not that difficult for a professional to repair. Never attempt a DIY diagnosis or repair with an electrical problem. It’s not worth the risk.
  • Frozen/iced-over outdoor unit: It can happen, even here. Your heat pump has a defrost cycle, but if it fails and the outdoor coil ices up, act quickly. It isn’t a problem yet but could strain the unit and lead to a breakdown.
  • Refrigerant: Heat pumps use refrigerant year-round. If you suspect a refrigerant leak, contact us quickly. It means the unit can’t absorb and transfer heat correctly, which can damage the compressor.
  • Reversing valve: This is what allows you to switch from heating to cooling. If it gets stuck, schedule heat pump repair.
