Heat pumps form the core of your heating and cooling system in Palm Coast, FL. Although they are similar to air conditioners, they also provide heat when temperatures get chilly—which happens occasionally even in Florida! When the weather is cooler, heat pumps pull in heat from the outside air and use it to warm your home. When it’s warm outside, heat pumps pull heat out of your home’s interior to cool things down. Powered by electricity, they use refrigerants to keep your home comfortable all year. Many homeowners choose them, so they don’t have to keep separate heating and cooling systems. For heat pump installation and repair services, contact McGowan's Heating & Air Conditioning, and we’ll send an experienced HVAC technician to handle your heat pump needs.
Trusted Heat Pump Service in Palm Coast
Your heat pump consists of several components, any of which can wear out, break down or require maintenance. For example, the outdoor portion of the heat pump has a coil that can act as a condenser to cool the air or as an evaporator to heat the air inside. The indoor unit has a coil and fan to move conditioned air throughout your house. Refrigerant releases or absorbs heat as required as it circulates throughout the system. There’s also a compressor to regulate the refrigerant and a reversing valve that controls which way the refrigerant flows. This is what enables the system to shift between cooling and heating functions. Additionally, heat pump systems have an expansion valve that helps regulate refrigerant flow.
Our team can repair every part of your heat pump system from the thermostat to the compressor to the evaporator to the valves that control refrigerant flow.
