Signs You Need a New Heat Pump
If you have a heat pump but are considering an upgrade or replacement, it might be worth considering these signs that your current heat pump is showing its age:
- Reduced energy efficiency driving up your utility bills despite regular maintenance
- Outdated technology that’s significantly less effective or efficient than a new unit
- Your home never quite gets comfortable anymore
- You keep needing repairs
- You’ve noticed a drop in indoor air quality
- Your heat pump operates loudly, and maintenance doesn’t help
If these symptoms sound familiar, it’s time to talk to Hopkins Air Conditioning about a new heat pump.
Benefits of Heat Pumps in the Florida Climate
Wondering if a heat pump is right for your home? If you want to make an informed decision, it’s important to understand why a heat pump is such an excellent pick for the Florida climate — especially if you’re strongly considering replacing your traditional HVAC with a heat pump.
A heat pump should be considered a close cousin to a standard air conditioner. It works by moving heat from one place to another via coolant and heat exchangers. In its cooling mode, it does this the same way an AC works. In its heating mode, it pulls heat in from the air outside and releases it inside. This offers incredible efficiency in a climate that rarely, if ever, drops below its ideal operational temperatures.
A heat pump will quickly lose efficiency below 40 degrees outdoor temperature. But above that, it can be as much as four or five times as efficient as a traditional HVAC system — and more gentle and comfortable than a furnace.
Florida is a great place to use a heat pump. You’ll almost always enjoy the incredibly high efficiency and rarely regret the lack of a furnace’s faster, more intense heat generation. You’ll also make great use of its high-efficiency cooling.

Frequently Asked Questions
Common questions we receive about heat pumps include:
Can I install a heat pump myself?
It’s not recommended to attempt to install a heat pump yourself. Heat pumps are complex refrigerant systems, and improper installation can create costly repairs and void the warranty.
How many rooms can a heat pump heat?
A single indoor unit can heat several rooms. There are single-zone units and multi-zone systems; determining the right heat pump for your home includes factoring in the number of floors, square footage, installation location, potential heat loss and gain, and current electrical load.
Do heat pumps use existing ductwork?
In most cases, heat pumps can use existing ductwork. If the original ductwork was poorly installed or designed, it might need to be replaced. If your home doesn’t have ductwork, there are ductless mini-split options.
Do heat pumps use a lot of electricity?
Heat pumps are energy-efficient and use a small amount of electricity to move heat. Switching to a heat pump can lower your carbon footprint and save you money on energy bills.
