The heat pump is a great way to heat and cool your home, especially if you live in a climate where the winter temperatures are regularly mild.
It is generally energy efficient and requires very little maintenance.
Heat pumps offer a variety of wonderful benefits. They use refrigerant to help absorb and release heat and they have a thermostat to control the temperature. I have a heat pump in my home and I use it during the winter for heating and during the summer for cooling. Normally there are no problems going from heat to cool. During the Spring months there can be days when the temperature is 80 and the next day it could be 40. I frequently toggled between the heat and the AC with no problems at all. When I tried to turn the air conditioner on this time, nothing happened at all. There was no click inside of the machine to indicate that the specific function was chosen and no air came out of the vents. There wasn’t warm air or cold air, so I thought there was an issue with the motor or the power. I immediately contacted an emergency service contractor from a Birmingham HVAC repair and replacement company. The Birmingham repair and replacement company quickly sent a technician to diagnose and investigate the problem. Sadly, the emergency service contractor from the Birmingham HVAC repair and replacement company could not fix the problem that night. I needed a new heat pump and the equipment could not be ordered and delivered until the next day.
