Heat Pump Replacement in Philadelphia, Montgomery County, & Bucks County

Heat pumps remove hot air from your property in the summer and funnel hot air inside in the winter. They involve sophisticated technology that allows for energy efficient heating and cooling on your property. While they are highly effective, they are used year-round rather than seasonally. This means that a heat pump must sustain a heavier burden than separate heating and air conditioning systems that get periodic breaks. Problems arise when heat pumps get old or start showing signs of a malfunction. If you suspect that you may need a new heat pump, we’re here to help. Bill Frusco Plumbing, Heating, & Cooling offers expert repairs and heat pump replacements in Philadelphia, Montgomery County, & Bucks County.

Signs of Heat Pump Failure

Signs of a failing heat pump include:

  • No heat
  • Weak airflow
  • High energy bills
  • Poor indoor air quality
  • Short cycles
  • Odd noises
  • Leaking water
  • Unpleasant smells
  • Repeatedly tripped breakers
  • Too much ice on the coils

Some of these symptoms may signal the end for your heat pump, but others may simply indicate a need for repairs. Our team can help you determine whether you need heat pump repair or a total heat pump replacement in Bucks County

Types of Heat Pumps

Heat pumps can be used in conjunction with gas furnaces and will be more efficient at certain times of the year. In between seasons when it is hot in the day and cold at night, heat pumps can seamlessly adjust because they provide both heating and cooling.  

Central Heat Pumps

Central heat pumps work with conventional central air systems to transfer warm or cool air through the ductwork in your home or office. The difference is that rather than a furnace, you have an air handler with a blower fan and an evaporator coil. The efficiency of this type of heating and cooling system is linked to the quality of your insulation and ductwork. Air quality will depend on how clean your ducts are and whether you are keeping your air filters clean. Some heat pumps now have inverter technology, which is a smarter motor that can change speeds and thus save energy. 

Ductless Heat Pumps

Ductless systems distribute heat and air through one or several air handlers placed strategically throughout your property. One of the major appeals is that these types of heat pumps don’t rely on ducts, which can make it harder to transport air more affordably and effectively. Unlike central heating and cooling systems, there is no static pressure, which facilitates better air circulation. Another unique and useful quality of ductless heat pumps is that different areas can have independent temperature control. This is known as zoning and can be great in properties that tend to have hot and cold spots. If a certain area is not in use, climate controls can be reduced or turned off to save energy.

Ground Source Heat Pumps

Also known as geothermal heat pumps, these systems generate heat or cool air from the ground. Because underground temperatures are more stable and less affected by the changing seasons, it is the perfect place from which to regulate indoor air temperature. These heat pumps are technically more efficient than any other, but they are also much pricier to install. Installation involves digging deeply into the ground, which is an intensive process that racks up high labor costs.

Air Source Heat Pumps

Air source heat pumps are the most common type, pumping warm air inside in the winter and outside in the summer. As a more affordable option than the ground source heat pump, these types of pumps are reasonably energy efficient. They also tend to be more energy efficient than many other types of heating and cooling systems. Being affordable, relatively simple to install, and capable of reducing your monthly utility bill, air source heat pumps are a favorite for both homeowners and businesses alike. 

If you are not sure what size heat pump you need or whether they are appropriate for your property, a professional can help. Heat pump contractors in Philadelphia are accustomed to calculating home heating and cooling needs for properties of all shapes and sizes. Whether you are a homeowner, restaurant owner, or an owner of other types of properties like office spaces, HVAC systems can be tailored to your unique needs.

How much does a new heat pump cost?

The cost of your heat pump installation in Philadelphia can vary widely based on several factors, including:

  • Capacity – Heat pump capacities are measured in BTUs and tons. For example, a smaller home may require a 1 ton (12,000 BTU) heat pump while a large commercial property may require 3 tons (36,000 BTUs) or more. The tonnage alone may impact the price of your new heat pump by several hundred dollars or more.
  • Energy efficiency – In warmer climates, heat pumps are even more efficient than furnace heating. In colder climates, they can still be effective, but it may require some extra care. To ensure high efficiency and low energy bills, have an HVAC professional check the quality of your insulation and choose a heat pump model with a decent SEER rating. For example, jumping just two points (such as 15 to 17) in your SEER rating may translate to 10-15% savings on your monthly energy bill. You may not need to upgrade to the highest possible SEER rating to see an improvement in your heating and cooling costs.
  • Installation costs – Some heat pumps are more difficult to install than others. If you are switching to a new heating and cooling system, the installation costs may be higher because it will take more time.
