What is better, a ducted or ductless heat pump?

A ducted heat pump may be the better option if you have central air conditioning with well-maintained ductwork. Ductless mini-split systems often take the lead for homes without existing ductwork or on historic properties with specific requirements for renovation.

Is a heat pump installation right for your Kamloops home?

Heat pumps are among the most energy-efficient heating and cooling systems available, and they operate well in the climates we experience here in Kamloops. Our heat pumps heat at 80% efficient at -30`C and keep working on heating lower than -30` C. Our heat pumps have a 10 year total parts warranty. A heat pump is the HVAC system for you if you want a compact, reliable, and dual-functioning system.

The following are some of the advantages of installing a heat pump:

  • Heating and cooling are available all year.
  • Traditional air conditioning and heating devices do not offer the same level of energy efficiency.
  • Heat pumps extracts heat from the cold outside air and transfers it inside our home. To this end, a compressor inside the device uses electricity to increase the temperature of the heat extracted from the outside air. The heat pump can also provide cooling by transferring warm indoor air to the outside, resulting in lower fuel expenses.
  • Heat pumps are more compact than other types of HVAC systems, therefore they save room.
  • Fewer repairs are required because the machine is never left idle for months at a time.
  • And there’s more! You’re not alone if you’re unsure whether you need a new heat pump. It’s especially perplexing if you inherited it when you moved into a new home. It’s recommended to have a professional come out and inspect your heat pump if you know it’s at least 12 years old. As a rule of thumb, the average heat pump lasts 14–15 years.

Save Money And Lower Your CO2 Emissions

People install new heat pumps for a variety of reasons, one of which is to save money on their heating expenses in the long run. And older heat pumps are likely to be less efficient than newer ones.

When Should I Replace My Heat Pump?

Your heat pump should be replaced every 14 years or when any of the following indicators appear:

  • Every season needs several repairs. If you need more than two repairs per year, it’s clear that your heat pump needs to be replaced. Even if you’ve had repairs in the last two years, you should think about upgrading or installing a new heat pump.
  • Your cooling and heating costs are increasing. Even though fuel prices are gradually growing year after year, your energy expenditures should not increase significantly. If you observe a significant rise, it’s time to replace your heat pump.
  • It’s still hot or cold in your house. If your home never appears to be cold or warm enough, you may need to replace your filters or install a new system.
  • The air quality has deteriorated. It’s possible that your heat pump is to blame if the air quality in your home has deteriorated.

We see a lot of people in the Thompson-Nicola region make the mistake of putting off replacing their heat pump and instead relying on maintenance. When you do that, you’re losing money! Even well-maintained heat pumps, however, eventually fail. This means you’ll need to find a reputable, professional HVAC firm in your area to replace your heat pump system when the time comes.

The HVAC professionals at KVA Mechanical are here to make sure your house is comfortable all year. We can help you with regular heat pump maintenance and heat pump replacement. We will use our expertise to assist you in selecting the best new system for your home as well as your needs. Then we’ll do a quick, professional installation so you can rest easy knowing that your home’s climate management system will last for years to come.

Heat Pump Installation across the Thompson-Nicola Region

When looking for a new heat pump, consider your monthly bills, the age of your current heat pump, and how reliable the unit is. If it’s evident that your heat pump is nearing the end of its useful life, save yourself the trouble of paying for ongoing maintenance and get a new heat pump instead—you’ll need one eventually, and the sooner you act, the more money you’ll save!

Heat Pump Tips

  • Set your thermostat at one temperature. Constant adjusting can cause higher utility costs, especially in the winter.
  • If using your thermostat as a setback type, limit the setbacks to twice a day such as when you are at work and when you are sleeping.
  • Only setback the thermostat 6% of desired temperature (approximately five degrees).
  • During the heating season, try not to set the thermostat below 65 degrees.
  • In the cooling mode, try not to set the thermostat below 70 degrees. Besides higher utility costs, this can cause the indoor coil to freeze and cause condensation in the house.
  • Make it a habit to look at the outdoor heat pump during the winter months for signs of excessive ice or snow build-up on or around the heat pump. Especially after bad weather.
  • If the unit is covered in ice or snow, it must be removed in order to work properly. Turn the thermostat to Emergency heat or the off position and remove the snow and ice. You can pour warm water over the unit to melt the snow and ice. Even cold water from a hose will help, but do not use hot water.
  • Do not use any sharp objects to pick or knock the ice off the coils of the heat pump. This could cause severe damage and personal injury.
  • Once the unit is clear of snow and ice turn the thermostat back to normal heating. If the unit ices up again, call for service.
  • Do not let the outdoor unit sit underneath a leaking gutter. In the winter months, water will drip on the top of the unit and freeze solid. This will restrict the air flow and cause the whole unit to freeze-up.
  • Heat Pumps should be elevated 4 to 8 inches above ground level to keep coils clear of snow and ice and to allow for proper drainage. Contact our Service Department if you would like your unit raised.

Tips For Maintaining Your Heat Pump

  • Check air filters monthly. Clean or replace as needed.
  • Keep outdoor unit clear of snow, ice, and debris. This includes the top, sides, bottom, and around the heat pump.
  • Keep the outdoor coils clean. If they get dirty you can use a heavy duty degreaser and hose them down. Just turn the unit off first.
  • Keep shrubs pruned back at least 18 inches from all sides of the heat pump to allow for proper airflow and servicing.
  • Flush the indoor condensate pan and drain in spring before using the air conditioning. This is extremely important if the unit is above or in a finished living area, but should really be done by a trained service technician.
  • Some fan motors need to be oiled annually, but almost all are now permanently sealed.
  • Last but not least, we suggest having your heat pump inspected by a trained service technician at least once a year. Your heat pump, unlike traditional heating and cooling systems, works all year, especially in the summer and winter. As a result, regular maintenance is critical to maintaining its operational efficiency in your home.
