The reason your Clark county neighbors are making the switch from conventional air conditioning and furnaces to heat pumps in Las Vegas is because they are the most energy efficient way you can heat and cool your home or commercial property.

A heat pump's biggest weakness is the fact that its efficiency drops when temperatures drop below 40 degrees Fahrenheit. Here in Las Vegas, Henderson and Boulder City, NV, the temperatures rarely drop that far, making heat pumps an excellent bet for maximum heating and cooling efficiency.

Can Heat Pumps Reduce Energy Bills?

Instead of generating heat, heat pumps move heat. In summer they function as a central air conditioner. Choosing a new high-efficiency heat pump is the way to go, as they can save plenty on energy bills.

How Do Heat Pumps Work?

Air source heat pumps are the most common, as they are inexpensive and installation is easy. Heat pumps work by pumping a liquid refrigerant through coil tubing, which vents heat from inside the house to the outside. As the liquid flows through the coil, it expands and becomes a gas which absorbs heat from the surrounding air. A blower then sends the air around the cooled coil, and passes through the ducts and into the house. In the winter, the process is reversed.

Comparing Heat Pumps To Furnaces

Heat pumps use clean electric energy, unlike furnaces which use fossil fuels like propane. Some furnaces use natural gas. When used alone, furnaces use a lot of electricity, mainly due to the fan working constantly. Heat pumps will usually keep the house warm when the temperature is in the 30s or above. If it falls below freezing, a furnace will do a better job.


Heat Pump Repair and Maintenance Tips

Heat pumps are meant to be dependable, efficient, and a "set-it then forget it" system. As with all mechanical devices, annual maintenance can prevent problems leading to heat pump inefficient operation and breakdowns.

Silver State Air Conditioning has provided some useful troubleshooting tips that homeowners and commercial property managers can utilize to lower energy consumption and repair bills.

Many heat pump issues require the attention of one of Silver State HVAC's NATE certified, factory trained technicians. But, being able to go through a process of elimination before calling in a professional from Silver State Air Conditioning may save you valuable time and money!

In the event that the heat pump will not come on, check all the switches located in or on the actual unit. You should also check the circuit breaker and ensure that the thermostat is set above the current temperature.

If the unit is not heating or cooling correctly, ensure the registers are open and that the thermostat is set correctly. You should also check the air filter and change it if it has accumulated dirt.

Check the belt on the fan if the blower isn't working properly. It may have simply come loose.

Should there be rattling noises in the housing or any moving parts, immediately turn off the unit and call Silver State Air Conditioning.

These simple troubleshooting tips may save you having to call in a Silver State Air Conditioning professional. Of course if you can't find the problem or are not comfortable in attempting to find the issue yourself, Silver State Air Conditioning is only a phone call away! One of their professional and skilled technicians will be more than happy to locate the issue and solve it for you.
