That said, being able to recognize the signs that it’s time to seek a new system can be exceptionally useful, so we recommend you familiarize yourself with these.
- Your heat pump is around 15 years old or was not well maintained by a previous owner
- The heat pump routinely falls behind or fails in keeping you comfortable
- Your heating and or cooling costs are too high or steadily increasing
- You need repairs too often. A yearly (or more) repair call isn’t normal and is just plain expensive!
- You want to change to a heat pump from a different cooling or heating system. Heat pumps are rapidly gaining in popularity due to their benefits, and if you would like to learn more about these, our team would be happy to discuss them with you.
8 Benefits of Heat Pumps
Northeast Ohio sees seasonal weather extremes, and a heat pump is a perfect way to manage indoor comfort through all of them. Some of the benefits of heat pumps include:
- Cooling – They may be called “heat pumps,” but their cooling systems are very effective and cost-efficient.
- Good investment – Investing in a heat pump system will increase your property value.
- Less maintenance – We recommend spring and fall heating and cooling systems checkups. You’ll realize maximum energy efficiency and better IAQ (indoor air quality). Maintenance reduces the risks of emergencies.
- Longer life span – The average heat pump’s life span is about 15 years, but with proper maintenance, many heat pumps can last much longer.
- Lower costs – Heat pumps are cheaper to run than combustion systems. This energy efficiency incurs almost immediate savings in monthly bills, and the long-term savings are even more dramatic.
- Reduces carbon emissions – Heat pumps not only reduce carbon emissions; they have a great energy-to-heat conversion rate.
- Safer – Heat pumps are safer than combustion-based systems.
- Tax credits – The State of Ohio has 46 financial incentives for energy-savings investments/home improvements. There remains a federal tax credit for HVAC (heating, ventilation, air conditioning) equipment purchased and installed in 2020.
Why You Need Professional Heat Pump Installation, Repair, or Replacement
Installing or replacing a heat pump is not a DIY (do-it-yourself) project. If you’re thinking “What can go wrong?” the answer is, “A lot.”
- A DIY installation can void your unit’s warranty. Even worse, if there’s property damage or personal injury due to a heat pump malfunction, your insurance company may not cover your losses if you can’t prove professional installation.
- Following a DIY installation, you may think your heat pump is working correctly when it isn’t. You won’t find out until later there was a small problem that led to an expensive problem.
- Installing a heat pump requires extensive knowledge of electrical wiring.
- Size matters, and your local HVAC professional can accurately assess what your property needs using tools you don’t have. If your heat pump isn’t sized correctly, you won’t know it until after it’s installed. It may short-cycle or simply break down.

Here are some frequently asked questions we receive about heat pumps and heat pump services for Northeast Ohio:
How does a heat pump work?
A heat pump is a stand-alone appliance that uses refrigeration processes and electricity for heating and cooling. It has a condenser unit that may be outside and an indoor unit that may be located on a wall. Its cooling mode extracts outside air and transfers it to a coolant. For heat, the system reverses the flow of the refrigerant.
What is an air-to-air heat pump?
Air-to-air heat pumps extract heat from your outdoor air and distribute it indoors. An earth-to-air heat pump (aka “geothermal heat pump”) transfers ground warmth to indoor air.
Why are heat pumps so energy-efficient?
Baseboard or space heaters have a one-to-one heat-to-electricity ratio for 100% efficiency. Heat pumps provide 3+ units of heat for each one unit of electricity. Your efficiency can increase by 300% or more.
Will heat pumps work in below-freezing weather?
At below 20 degrees, a heat pump’s efficiency may drop to 100% (which is what you have with a traditional HVAC system anyway). The heat pump is designed to run almost continuously in freezing weather. But if it runs continuously when temperatures are above 32 degrees, there may be a problem.
