Deciding on the Heat Pump for your Needs

5 ton pumpWhen selecting a heat pump for your dwelling, you can most easily determine the capacity of the machine needed by the square footage of the space you will be heating and cooling. Our heat pump units range from 1.5 to 5 ton units. The basic rule for purchasing a heat pump condenser to expect your machine to perform efficiently, considering for every 600-650 square feet of space, you would need a machine which has the capacity of 1 ton. For example, a 1400 square foot of conditioned space would be most suited for a 2 ton heat pump. For any size space, a simple process of dividing the square foot by 650 would give you the answer for the number of ton unit you would need to adequately heat or cool your space.

Maintaining your Heat Pump

A properly functioning heat pump is vitally important to families and businesses alike as they ensure the temperature in a room which promotes a comfortable environment. Maintenance of these important machines includes monitoring the components that keep them operating efficiently. Filters in heat pump condensers must be cleaned or change monthly if used heavily and if not monthly should be monitored to ensure the filter is changed when it becomes clogged. When outdoor coils appear dirty, they need to be cleaned to ensure a properly functioning machine. Foliage and clutter that surrounds an outdoor unit should also be kept clear. All supply and return registers from the unit need to be kept clean and ensure that they are straightened if bent to ensure adequate airflow. In addition to the routine maintenance that you can perform at home to protect your valued investment, you should also have your heat pump condenser serviced by a professional on an annual basis. The maintenance your technician will perform should include a thorough inspection of ducts, filters, blowers, and indoor coils clearing them of all dirt and debris.

Compressor Stages
