Monday, September 18th, 2023

It’s almost the official first day of fall, and around here that means Maintenance Season! Our mascot, Moose, loves HVAC maintenance because it’s one of the ways we can best help our customers. Regular maintenance does so much good, such as…

  • …keeping your heater running at peak energy efficiency, saving you money!
  • …preventing the majority of repair problems.
  • …extending your heating system’s service life by several years.
  • …improving heater safety.
  • …keeping the warranty valid.

But what’s that you say? You have a heat pump, and you already had it maintained in spring? It’s good that you had spring maintenance, but we have important news: heat pumps need maintenance twice each year. We’ll explain why below.

How Long Will a Heat Pump Last?

Monday, July 10th, 2023

Heat pumps are wonderful devices. They pack both heating and cooling into a single package that runs entirely on electricity, and they can operate at high levels of energy efficiency, especially when compared to using an electric furnace.

My Heat Pump Isn’t Heating—What Gives?

Monday, January 9th, 2023

Our mascot, Moose, loves heat pumps. We agree with his reasons! You see, heat pumps not only offer a home both heating and cooling from a single unit, they also work at high efficiency in heating mode. Compared to using an electric furnace to heat a home, a heat pump uses far less energy and can save hundreds of dollars over a year. Plus, heat pumps are ideal for our climate because our milder winters make it easier for heat pumps to draw heat from outdoors to transport indoors.

But heat pumps aren’t perfect, and that’s why sometimes we have to set the Moose loose in your neighborhood to have them repaired. We handle services for heat pumps in Greenville, SC and we can get to the bottom of a problem such as a heat pump that won’t heat.

We’re always glad to share information with our clients, so let’s look at why your heat pump isn’t doing the “heating” half of its job.
