Heat Pump Installation & Repair Technicians in Philadelphia, PA

Whether you are looking for a new heating system or you currently have a heat pump for your home, the technicians at Whiting Services LLC are ready to assist you with installing, repairing, or maintaining your unit. Today, many homeowners in the Greater Philadelphia region are considering the advantages that heat pumps offer.

Heat pumps differ from furnaces because they serve both the function of heating and cooling your home. While furnaces use fuel like natural gas to heat the air and distribute it throughout your home, a heat pump essentially pulls heat from the air outside into your home — even when it’s freezing outside.

Heat Pump Installation

Heat pumps are becoming an increasingly popular choice among homeowners thanks to their energy efficiency. They may also be a good choice if your home does not have access to natural gas. The initial cost for installing a heat pump may also be lower than installing both a furnace and an air conditioner.

As with any other heating installation, proper sizing is essential. A trained technician will be able to make sure that the unit is the correct size for your home to ensure that it will be able to heat and cool your home efficiently without working too hard. In the summer, having the right size unit means that it will also be able to dehumidify the air to prevent it from getting too moist.

Heat Pump Repairs and Maintenance

Perhaps even more so than with other units, regular maintenance for a heat pump is essential to ensure that it continues to work properly. It will also help to significantly prolong its lifespan — a well-maintained unit may last for 15 years or more. Maintenance will also help your technician spot any repairs that are needed for your heat pump early, before they become a major problem.

Outdoor Heat Pump Maintenance

If the outdoor section of your heat pump is dirty, it will cause the system to run hot. Just like an automobile, if it runs hot, it can decrease its lifespan dramatically. You’ll see that there are layers of grime that prevent proper air movement. This buildup can be caused by grass clipping from your lawn, fallen leaves, and other yard debris.

Indoor Heat Pump Maintenance

If the indoor section of your heat pump is dirty, it will prevent the air from getting cold, making the system work harder to cool your home. This buildup is caused by not changing your air filter regularly. It can also build up over time, even with regular filter changes. We recommend changing your heat pump’s air filter every 1 to 3 months.
