Offering New Installation, Repairs & Heat Pump Maintenance

If you’re in need of a new heating system for your home, consider an energy-saving heat pump. This type of system is a great option for those who don’t have access to natural gas or propane, or for those who are not able to accommodate the proper ventilation needs of other types of heating systems. Heat pumps are different than other heating systems, and therefore require the care and expertise of trained professionals. At Brinson & Sons, we're capable of installing new heat pumps quickly and correctly, as well as repairing or replacing existing units. We can even help you with heat pump maintenance services to ensure that you’re getting the most out of your system.

How Do Heat Pumps Work?

If you’re considering having a new heat pump installed, you might be wondering whether or not this is the right option for your home. In contrast to other types of heating and cooling systems, heat pumps warm up or cool down space by transferring heat, rather than burning fuel. During the hotter months of the year, heat pumps pull heat from inside your home and transfer it outside to cool your home. In the winter months, this process is reversed, and warmed air drawn from outside is cycled through your home’s air ducts. The whole system works by using coils that contain very cold liquid refrigerant. As air passes over these coils, it is either warmed or cooled. Additionally, air that passes over the coils is dehumidified, meaning the humidity level in your home is reduced.

Signs You Need Heat Pump Repair

If you already have a heat pump, chances are you’ll eventually need repairs at some point. Much like any system in your home, heat pumps can experience issues through repeated use and normal wear and tear. There are a few things to look out for that can signal a problem with your heat pump.

  • A unit that is making strange noises
  • Insufficient heating or cooling
  • A heat pump that won’t turn on or off
  • Development of ice on or near the unit
  • Reduced energy efficiency/increased bills
  • Unusual cycling, both too frequent and infrequent
  • A heat pump that is older than 15 years

Our technicians are highly trained, as well as background-checked, drug-tested, and licensed and insured for your peace of mind.
