Your comfort is our priority

Heat pumps are efficient heating and cooling systems that reduce electricity consumption by transferring the heat from one location to another instead of creating it. They are capable of keeping your residence comfortable throughout the year. Because of continuous use, these equipment need routine maintenance and repairs to fix small heating problems early on. While certain problems require minor repairs, other major problems may require an entire heat pump replacement.

What is a heat pump?

A heat pump is an air conditioner and heater in one machine. It compresses and expands refrigerant, a refrigerant is a chemical that absorbs and releases heat. The refrigerant is pumped through a closed loop system, where it goes from the evaporator to the compressor to the condenser and back to the evaporator. The hot side is called the condenser, which is outdoor unit that you see on your home or office building. The cold side is called the evaporator, which is an indoor unit that you find within your air handler. The compressor pumps the refrigerant through the system to transfer heat from one place to another.

What is the average life of a heat pump?

The life of a heat pump is dependent upon the quality and efficiency. It also depends on what type of heat pump you have. The average lifespan for a heat pump is 15-20 years.

How do I know if my heat pump is leaking refrigerant?

If you suspect that your heat pump is leaking, the most obvious sign is a loss of performance. If you have to replace the outdoor unit’s capacitor more than once in a short period of time it could be an indication of a refrigerant leak. There are some telltale signs that a heat pump is not working properly. If the outdoor unit has condensate forming on the fan blades, it could be a sign of low refrigerant pressures. If you hear a hissing noise from the outdoor unit this also indicates low refrigerant pressures. You can have your HVAC contractor or technician check for any leaks in the refrigerant lines. If you have a pin hole leak in one of your copper lines, this can cause your entire system to be non-functional even if it is only a small leak. Let us know if we can help you in Lafayette, NJ 07848

What parts comprise a heat pump?

The outdoor and indoor units are interconnected by copper tubing that contains refrigerant at very high pressure, as high as 2,000 pounds per square inch. The outdoor unit houses a compressor and fan, which compresses the gas in the copper tubing between the evaporator and condenser coils. When it reaches an extremely high pressure in this coil, liquid refrigerant is released into the indoor portion of the system.

What is reverse cycle heating?

It’s when your air conditioner is used in the winter to help heat your house. Your indoor unit switches roles and becomes an evaporator, which absorbs heat from inside of the home. It’s then forced outside using a fan where it heats up coils on the outdoor unit.

What is a heat pump split system?

A split system consists of two separate components, an outdoor and indoor unit. The condenser is installed outdoors and the evaporator is installed indoors.

What makes a heat pump stand out from other heating systems?

Heat pumps are more energy efficient than all available home heating options such as furnaces or boilers. Their operating costs are typically 50-60 percent less than furnaces and 40-50 percent less than boilers. Heat pumps provide several benefits compared to other heating options: – Cleaner, healthier indoor air. Due to its superior dehumidification capabilities, a heat pump will remove more moisture from your home’s air. Since it has no flame and does not burn fuel in order to generate heat, a heat pump will create fewer pollutants than other heating options.

Easier installation process. Since the outdoor unit is installed outside your home, it will require less interior space which can be important if you are looking to install a new central air system in an older home that may not have the extra room. -Heat pumps work efficiently regardless of outdoor temperatures. Since the system can operate in heating and cooling modes simultaneously, it will continue to draw heat from the ground even when it is freezing outside and we can help in installation or heat pump replacement in Lafayette, NJ 07848.

Enhanced energy efficiency compared to other heating system options. Heat pumps work by transferring heat instead of generating it and they typically increase your home’s overall level of insulation. These factors combined reduce your home’s demand for energy, which saves you money.

Enhanced Indoor Air Quality. The EPA identifies heat pumps as one of the most effective ways to improve air quality in your home since they recharge their own supply of refrigerant over a 4-8 year period which reduces the amount of ozone depletion caused by other heating methods such as furnaces.

Environmentally Friendly. According to the EPA, heat pumps are one of the most environmentally friendly heating options since they take less energy to produce the same amount of heat as other heating methods.

What is a reversing valve?

The purpose of your heat pump’s reversing valve is to direct the flow of refrigerant into either your heating or cooling unit. If the system suddenly stops working, check for a faulty reversing valve. This problem can often cause low airflow from your indoor unit and it may even produce a burning smell. The valves can stick due to a faulty thermostat or a dirty filter, among other things.

What should you do if your heat pump isn’t working properly?

If your heat pump breaks down and it’s still under warranty, call the manufacturer for instructions on how to get it fixed. Otherwise, you’ll have to hire a professional HVAC technician to take a look at your system and figure out what’s wrong with it. If you’re not comfortable dealing with mechanical objects, call someone who is qualified to fix it for you.

What should you do if the outdoor unit of your heat pump freezes?

If frost covers the outdoor unit, this means that there is more heat than necessary inside the unit. If you’re comfortable, feel free to grab a bucket of hot water or a hair dryer and melt it off. Just be careful not to get injured while doing so.

What should you do if there is no airflow in your heat pump?

If your air isn’t blowing properly, check your filter first. If you find that your filter is dirty, change it out with a clean new one to get the airflow moving again. Failing that, check on the reversing valve to make sure it’s working properly; if not, get it replaced.

What should you do if there is dirt or dust in your heat pump?

Check your filter first. If you find that your filter is dirty, change it out with a clean new one to get the airflow moving again. Failing that, check on the reversing valve to make sure it’s working properly; if not, get it replaced.

What should you do if there are any abnormal noises coming from your outdoor unit?

If your heater or air conditioner starts to produce an unusual noise, shut it down immediately. This could be a sign of serious problems so call in a professional HVAC technician right away. If you hear a knocking sound coming from the unit, this may mean that there is dirt in the rotor blades which need to be removed before they cause damage to the compressor.

What should you do if there are weird smells coming from your heat pump?

If there’s a burning smell emanating from your outdoor unit, something is probably wrong with the reversing valve or compressor. This could lead to more problems down the line so call in a certified HVAC technician as soon as possible! If there is a burning smell in the air when you turn on your unit, this could mean one of several things. Your indoor coil could be dirty and it needs to be cleaned or there may be too much refrigerant in the system.

What should you do if your heat pump doesn’t work to its full potential?

Your heat pump works well when it’s running at optimal levels. If you feel like your system is inefficient, check for a dirty filter or clogged coils which could be hampering performance.

I looked for a local HVAC company online and saw that AirOne Pros had great reviews. Mike came and worked from 11PM to 3AM to replace the room’s wall unit to a new ductless heating and cooling system. Professional and clean work. Will hire to service rooms across our other hotels in NJ and PA. Highly recommended – thanks Mike!

We hired AirOne Pros to fix the condenser fan motor for our home HVAC system. Mike was great. He gave us options and we went with his recommendation to upgrade as it was less costly and more efficient long-term. We also signed up for his annual service maintenance so we can try to avoid future breakdowns. Thanks Mike!

Kashif S., Freehold, NJ

We needed to replace our old AC and furnace. Got several estimates and decided to go with Air One. We liked Mike’s honesty and he doesn’t oversell. It was done in the time he said it would take. He and his team were professional, courteous, and responds back promptly when we called. We recommend him because his work and his attentive service is very good.

The AC system went down in mid June during a hot weekend. I contacted Air One on a Sunday afternoon and they were very prompt to answer an schedule an appointment with me right away. Since my system was very old needed to be replaced. Mike provided a very professional overview of what has to be done and how and I realized right away he was very knowledgeable and experienced so I decided to go ahead with the job. Next day my permits went to the township and in a week time frame the job was done, all running smoothly so far, Mike and his office manager Melissa worked with me closely for all the paperwork, discounts and post installation follow up. Strongly recommend to others
Thank you very much for great job!!

Monica Nedelciu

The guys at Air One were amazing. Our 24 year old furnace was on its last leg. My husband called around for several quotes before we came across Air One. They were very knowledgeable and their quote on a brand new system was reasonable. They were able to install our new system in 7 hours. Mike and his crew were great. Very professional. I would STRONGLY recommend them to anyone in need of HVAC service.

Riley B

It was a Saturday 12pm and my central air was blowing but not cold air. I called 5 different companies and none answered or called me back. At 2pm I called Air one and a nice girl answered the phone and told me she could have someone between 4 and 6. 415 the guy showed up and ran through a series of tests. He found that I needed to replace the 25 Year old unit. He was able to get an appointment on the hottest day of the year on Monday 8am. Mike showed up with two other guys and they did an amazing Job. They double checked everything when they were done. Highly recommend to use them.

William Kennedy

The replacement happened in Jan. ’18 during a record cold spell. During the first visit the tech did a very simple fix to a switch, and not only didn’t charge me, but he also showed me how to do it if I had more problems so I wouldn’t need to wait for a service call. It was a very old system so it actually died within a week. Mike and his team showed up fast, did the install within a day, and they didn’t leave a speck of dust or a scrap of wire behind. Mike was very clear about what needed to be done and what it would cost, and the price was very reasonable. They ran into difficulty installing the unit because it’s an old house but even when they had to drill into the concrete slab the cost didn’t change.

Cheryl Litwinczuk

We called Air One because our aging A/C was not working. Mike came and looked at the A/C and told us that we needed a new motor. Mike replaced the motor and the air is, once again, working. Since our system was quite old , we were expecting to be told that we needed to replace our HVAC system. Air One is professional, ethical and were wonderful to work with. We highly recommend them and will definitely call them again!
