Heat Pumps

What Are the Benefits of a Heat Pump System?

The HVAC professionals at BEL-O Cooling & Heating have the experience and knowledge to install a heat pump in your O’Fallon, Illinois area home. Some of the benefits of heat pump installation include:

Smart Investment

Opting to install a heat pump over a furnace or central air conditioning unit can save you money on your utility bills because heat pumps do not use as much energy as these systems; they simply move heat around rather than producing heat. Ultimately, the total cost saved depends on factors like the season, installation, and how many windows you have.

Environmentally Friendly HVAC Option

Gas furnaces run off fossil fuels. Customers who turn to heat pumps are able to reduce greenhouse gasses. We can install your heat pump to reduce the environmental impact!

Superior Energy Ratings

Residential heat pumps offer fantastic energy ratings. Our best models have 20.5 SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficient Ratio) and 13 HSPF (Heating Seasonal Performance Factor) — well above the minimum requirements.

All-in-one Heating and Cooling System

A heat pump can act as an air conditioner and heater, making it the perfect way to cover all of the seasons we see in O’Fallon, Illinois. 

How to Tell if You’re Experiencing Heat Pump Issues

We offer commercial and residential heat pump maintenance, repair, and replacement services for residents of O’Fallon, Illinois and the surrounding areas. Call our cooling specialists if you notice the following signs.

Weak Heating and Cooling / Fails to Switch from Cooling to Heating

If your heat pump is temperamental or not producing adequate heating or cooling, call our O’Fallon, Illinois HVAC professionals for fast repair. If your heat pump is failing to switch from cooling to heating, or vice versa, it could be due to a broken reversing valve. A heat pump’s reverse valve is responsible for switching the direction the refrigerant flows through the lines in the unit.

Unchanged Temperature

Your heat pump should keep you comfortable all season long. If you’re experiencing comfort issues, your system may require a repair.

Short Cycling

When your heat pump runs for a short time, shuts down, and picks back up a few minutes later, this is called short cycling, which negatively affects your energy bill. Short cycling can also seriously damage the longevity of your HVAC system. If you experience short cycling, call BEL-O Cooling & Heating to have one of our technicians inspect the system.

Strange Sounds

If you’re hearing loud, obstructive noises coming from your system, there’s definitely an issue. Aside from the sound of your heat pump starting or ending a cycle, these units are relatively quiet, and any noise out of the ordinary should be a sign of concern.

Utility Bill Spikes

Don’t ignore uncommonly high energy bills. If your bills are rising for seemingly no reason, don’t hesitate to call on a professional for heat pump repair services.

How Often Should I Schedule Heat Pump Maintenance?

Your heat pump system requires a tune-up at least once a year. If your heat pump is your primary HVAC system, then consider having it serviced twice a year, typically in the fall and spring.
