Heat Pump Installation, Repair & Maintenance

If your home needs a new heating system, energy-efficient heat pumps might be the right choice for you. This heat pump system is a good option for those who do not have proper ventilation or do not have natural gas or propane access. These energy-saving heat pumps are very different from other, more traditional heating systems and require the installation of trained professionals. At Restano Heating, Cooling & Plumbing, we offer quality service when installing these heating systems or replacing or repairing existing units. We want to ensure you have the right system for your home and get the most out of it.

How Does a Heat Pump Work?

There are many advantages of modern heat pumps, including the ability to heat and cool your home from one efficient system. A heat pump does not convert electricity into heat but absorbs warmth from the atmosphere or ground (even in cold temperatures) and transfers it to the indoor air. The heat transfer process eliminates greenhouse gas emissions, safety hazards, and the dust and temperature fluctuation of traditional HVAC equipment. However, when a heat pump is in cooling mode, it functions as a conventional air conditioner, absorbing indoor air and releasing it through the outdoor unit. A heat pump also gives you more options for location placement since the system does not require a flue to vent the exhaust.

The size of your home and the climate you live in are good factors to consider when deciding which system is best for your home. Lucky for you, our experts are here to give you honest, beneficial advice on which plan is right for your home. If you would like to learn more about how a heat pump can benefit your home, call Restano Heating, Cooling & Plumbing at (412) 793-3190! In addition, we offer free quotes for new equipment installation. 

Energy-Efficient Geothermal Heat Pumps

When it comes to efficiency and environmental impact, there is no comparison to geothermal heat pumps. Geothermal heating and cooling utilize the ground temperature to heat or cool your home through a series of pipes circulating water and antifreeze. The coolant circulating through the pipes absorbs heat from the ground and transports it to your home's heat pump. The heat pump then releases warm air into your home through the ductwork system. During the summer months, the geothermal system will switch into ac mode performing a similar cycle removing the warm air from your home. 

A geothermal heat pump can generate four units of energy for every unit of electrical power, and these systems deliver 400 percent efficiency. The average 2,000 square foot home can be temperature-controlled, year-round, for about a dollar a day. These systems can also supplement your home's conventional water needs, trimming up to 30 percent of water costs annually. Carrier offers various geothermal systems, even if you already have a variable ducted heat source or rely on a hydronic system. Call us today to schedule a free estimate with our professional geothermal design team for more information about geothermal heat pump systems.

Indications You Need a Heat Pump Repair

Just like other systems in your home, you may encounter problems with your heat pump as it endures years of use and the inevitable wear and tear. However, there are several signs that you can be on the lookout for that signal your heat pump might need repairing.

Signs you need to call a Pittsburgh heat pump specialist:

  • A heat pump that will not turn on 
  • Formation of ice on or near the heat pump
  • An unusual sound coming from the unit
