Heat Pump Repair, Replacement, and Maintenance for Homeowners in Los Angeles and Surrounding Areas

A heat pump is perfect for Los Angeles residents looking to heat and cool their homes. Heat pumps work well in moderate climates, such as California temperatures, due to the pumps struggling in climates below freezing. The pumps work best in warmer climates because they draw air from the outside to warm your home. If the outdoor air is too cold, the heat pump will have to work harder and less efficiently.

What is a Heat Pump?

Many people first read “Heat Pump” and think it is strictly for heating purposes. Contrary to this assumption, a heat pump is a heating and cooling device that transfers warm air. In the winter, the system pulls outdoor air, heats it to the desired temperature, and distributes the warm air throughout a space. In the summertime, the pump pulls warm air from the indoor air and transports it outside. The heating and cooling unit is installed outside your home.

Heat Pumps are Energy Efficient

Due to heat pumps simply transferring energy rather than creating it, this heating and cooling option uses less energy compared to other systems. Heat pumps remain energy efficient throughout the winter in moderate climates by rarely having to create heat. According to Energy.gov, today’s heat pumps can reduce your electricity usage by approximately 50% compared to electric resistance heating.

Heat Pumps will be required in California in 2023

According to the Natural Resources Defense Council, the state of California has committed to reducing fossil fuel use in new homes and buildings, resulting in establishing heat pumps as baseline technology by the beginning of 2023. California aims to achieve 100% clean energy by 2045 and is relying on us to work toward making the golden state green.

Heat Pump Maintenance

Much like a car needs an oil change, your heat pump requires preventative maintenance to continue to function properly. Regular maintenance helps ensure your unit is running correctly and efficiently. Your Brody Pennell technician can help catch a problem before a breakdown with preventative maintenance. Heat pumps should be serviced at least once a year to maintain their longevity, reliability, and efficiency.

What’s Included in Heat Pump Maintenance?

  • Inspect ducts, filters, blower, and indoor coil for dirt and other obstructions
  • Check for and repair any refrigerant leaks
  • Clean/replace air filter and check for sufficient airflow
  • Lubricate motors, and inspect belts for tightness and wear
  • Duct Inspection
  • Check thermostat connection

General Maintenance Tips

  • Regularly clean and replace air filters
  • Ensure surrounding area around the pump is clean and free of debris
  • Carefully examine for loose electrical connection and give us a call before attempting to tighten
  • Preventative maintenance once a year

Heat Pump Repair in LA

If you ever have trouble with your heat pump, we offer a 24/7 repair service. More times than not your heat pump will show warning signs it needs repair. Warning signs include:

  • Too Much Noise. If your heat pump is making excessive noises such as rattling, this could indicate there is a broken part or in need of repair soon.
  • Short Cycles. If the heat is switching on and off frequently, there is likely an internal issue that needs to be addressed by a technician.
  • Reduced Heating or Cooling. Your heat pump may reduce warm or cold airflow, which is likely due to the compressor or a refrigerant leak.
  • High Utility Bills. While heat pumps are extremely energy efficient, they begin to use more energy if their ability to function is hindered. This will increase your utility bills.

Before calling your Brody Pennell technician, try these simple troubleshooting tips to alleviate the problem.

Make sure your heat pump is not blocked.

A blocked heat pump can result in insufficient airflow, which could be why your heating was reduced or your utility bill raised. Due to your heat pump pulling air from outside, any obstruction or debris can harm airflow and make your heat pump work harder.

Confirm the thermostat is working.

Your thermostat could be switched off or not on the correct setting. This could be a reason your heat pump has stopped air flow completely. Ensure the thermostat is on, has proper settings, and has new batteries if battery powered.

Check your air filter.

Maintaining a clean air filter is one of the most important things you can do for your heat pump. Your air filter provides consistent airflow, clean air quality, and overall comfort. If your air filter is dirty or clogged, your heat pump can overheat and shut down or slow airflow.

Heat Pump Replacement Services

How do you know whether to replace or repair your heat pump? There are many factors to consider, but here are the main reasons you should consider replacement.

Your Heat Pump is 10 years or older.

Heat pumps typically last an average of 15 years, but the chance of needing to replace it begins when the unit is about 10 years old. Your heat pump’s efficiency levels decline as it ages because the unit works all year long to heat and cool.

Your Heat Pump needs frequent repairs. 

If your unit is 10 years or older, it may need frequent repair which can be costly. Replacing your heat pump can save on energy and repair costs in the future.

Your Heat Pump is struggling to maintain the thermostat setting.

If you have evaluated heat pump repair and your unit is still not meeting heating and cooling demands, it may be time to replace your system. A struggling unit is not only affecting your overall comfort, but driving up your energy bill as well. Let us help you replace your heat pump with a newer, efficient system to save on utility bills and keep you comfortable.

Don’t let your system breakdown on you before you make the decision to replace it. A heat pump breakdown and replacement in the middle of winter or the L.A. heat sounds like a nightmare. Pay attention to these signs to know if your heat pump needs to be replaced. We are here to help make your heat pump replacement as easy as possible, give us a call to inspect your heat pump!
