Heat pumps don’t generate heat as most would expect, but instead work by transporting heat from one location to another. The way in which this is done is similar to how your fridge works by using refrigerants and compressing and expanding air to either heat or cool a property. While they are fairly simple systems, heat pumps do have a lot of components which can, and do, go wrong. If you’re looking for heat pump service and repair in Middletown City, VA (and surrounding areas) we can assist with both residential and commercial properties.
Heat Pump Servicing and Maintenance
Heat pumps are highly efficient and are able to produce three or four units of energy for every single unit of energy used. This translates to one third the cost of gas heating, and one quarter the cost of electric heating. However, failing to service or maintain your heat pump on a regular basis can cause it to become inefficient, and lead to costly repairs that can otherwise be easily avoided. We have highly experienced and certified professionals in our team who can take care of all your servicing needs and even provide tips on maintenance. For those who would like added peace of mind, we also provide affordable annual maintenance plans which can save a lot of money.
Heat Pump Repair (Including Average Cost)
Regardless of if you have a single-split system, multi-split system or ducted system, we have the know-how to be able to quickly find and repair problems of all types. The cost to repair your heat pump will depend on the size and type of system you have, as well as the extent of the damage. For instance, simple problems such as a blocked condenser will usually be easier and cheaper to fix as opposed to needing to replace the heat pump blower. Even so, the average cost to repair a system is around $250, although it can range from $60 to $900 or more. By speaking to us directly, we will be able to provide you with an accurate cost estimate.
