Houston Heat Pump Installation and Care 

Heat pumps work by moving air over a compressor, heating or cooling it similarly to a refrigerator. They conserve more thermal energy than a standard AC, making them more efficient and an environmentally friendly cooling solution. 

We service air-source and geothermal heat pumps in Houston, as well as ducted (central air) and ductless (mini-split) heat pump systems. Whatever your brand or model, our technicians can install, maintain, and repair your heat pump. 

Heat Pump Installation in Houston 

If you don’t have any air conditioner at all or you’d like to replace an older, less efficient unit, we’ve got you covered! You’ll save money every summer by replacing a 10- to 15-year-old air conditioner with a new air-source heat pump. Our technicians expertly install a range of brand-new air-source and geothermal heat pumps. 

Air-source heat pumps themselves usually last about 10-15 years while geothermal systems can last 20-25 years before needing replacement. 

If your current heat pump system is older than 15 years and needs frequent repairs, our technician may recommend a replacement over a temporary fix. 

Houston Heat Pump Maintenance

Just like other HVAC systems, heat pumps run better and last longer when properly maintained. Since heat pumps do double duty as your cooling and heating system, schedule maintenance twice a year; once in April or May before the hot weather starts and again in the fall before the night-time lows get down to the 40s in December.

Our technicians will tune up your system, check for and fix any damaged or worn parts, and ensure everything runs as smoothly as it should so your heat pump keeps you and your family comfortable year-round.

Heat Pump Repair in Houston

Sometimes, your heat pump stops heating or cooling the way it should. When that happens, call us for repairs!

Here are the signs you need a heat pump service call:  

  • Heat pump blows hot air on the AC setting, or cold air on the heat setting.
  • System doesn’t run or turn on when it’s supposed to.
  • Indoor temperature doesn’t match the thermostat setting.
  • Strange noises or smells from the unit or vents.
  • A sweet chemical smell. (This indicates a refrigerant leak, which means you should turn off your system immediately and call for emergency heat pump repair.)
  • Short-cycling, or your system turning on and off more frequently than it should.
  • System running constantly.
  • Iced or dirty condenser coils.
  • A sudden, unexplained increase in your energy bills.

Houston Heat Pump FAQs

Do heat pumps work in Houston?

Yes! These efficient systems work in all kinds of climates, including ours. Heat pumps function very efficiently in mild to hot climates, like Texas’ Gulf Coast. They’re a great cooling option, especially since they can handle the occasional need for heating. If they replace a gas furnace or boiler, they eliminate the carbon monoxide risk from your HVAC while reducing your home’s carbon footprint.

How much money is saved in Houston with a heat pump?

The amount of money saved depends on how old/efficient your current air conditioner is. Heat pumps are slightly more efficient at cooling than older AC systems, but are roughly as efficient as modern air conditioners. 

A heat pump can save you money over the colder months by heating your home for less than the cost of a gas boiler or electric furnace. Savings depend on the current cost of the fuel source. However, heat pumps that replace gas-fired heating appliances will always reduce your carbon monoxide risk and lower your home’s carbon footprint.

Heat pump vs. AC in Houston: which is better?

A standard air conditioner only cools your home. Heat pumps, on the other hand, can heat and cool your home. This means that you don’t need a separate furnace to handle Houston’s near-freezing winter lows.

If your home doesn’t have ductwork, heat pumps are a good go-to cooling solution. A mini-split system distributes air through overhead air handles, no ducts required.
