Heat Pump Systems
Air source heat pumps are the most commonly used heating and air conditioning systems in South Eastern NC. Heat pump units are designed to maintain their highest efficiency levels and proper working capabilities in milder climates. During cooler weather, these systems have electric auxiliary heat strips (back up/emergency heat) to provide supplement heat for your home.
Heat Pumps are available in two applications: as a split system which has an air handler and a separate condenser unit; or as a package system which contains both the air handler and condenser section in one larger outdoor unit.
In air conditioning mode, the condenser section pumps refrigerant through the copper line set and into the evaporator coil inside the air handler. As the refrigerant moves throughout the evaporator coil, the coil becomes cold. Air is then pulled across the evaporator coil, cooling the air down resulting in the air conditioned air being pushed through the duct work in your home. In heating mode the refrigerant cycle is reversed. The condensing unit sends refrigerant to the evaporator coil, heating the coils which then creates warm air as air goes across the coils. Air source heat pumps operate using Freon R22 or Puron R410-A refrigerant.
Our certified heating and air conditioner repair technicians perform full system servicing and repairs for all brands and models of heat pumps. This includes the indoor air handlers, outdoor condensers, and package systems. When All Comfort Heating and Cooling sends a maintenance technician to your home, they fully inspect your entire heating and A/C system to ensure it is working at its’ highest efficiency from the thermostat to the duct work.
