A few ways you can make your heat pump more efficient in the winter in Buda, TX are:

  • Keep your heat pump at a consistent temperature.

  • Keep your filters clean.

When your heat pump is blowing cold air in Buda, TX, you can check:

  • The temperature of the air coming from your vents with an infrared thermometer.
  • Your air filters.
  • Your thermostat setting (it should be set to AUTO not ON).

There can be multiple reasons your heat pump is blowing cold air, including when it is in defrost mode when it first turns on. If you try the solutions above and your heat pump still blows cold air for more than 2-5 minutes, you should have an HVAC technician repair your heat pump. To get your heat pump repaired, give us a call today.

Some signs your heat pump is working properly in Buda, TX include:

  • Your heat pump’s operation is quiet.
  • Your heat pump is properly heating and cooling your home.
  • The outdoor unit is running.

If you are new to owning a heat pump, it can be hard to tell when your heat pump is working since it operates quietly and also costs very little to power each month. If you are unsure if your heat pump is working properly, feel free to call us today!

The average life of a heat pump in Buda, TX is around 10-15 years. However, if you do not have your heat pump regularly maintenanced, its lifespan can be shortened. Regular maintenance of your heat pumps allows for it to be cleaned, inspected and serviced to prevent costly repairs from catching you by surprise. If you are thinking about getting a heat pump installed or replaced, call Garner Heating and Air Conditioning today.

Your Best Heat Pump Options

A heat pump will come with a SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) rating for the air conditioning part. Generally, the higher this number, the higher the efficiency of the unit. It will also come with HSPF (Heating Seasonal Performance Factor) that goes up in a similar way. An Energy Star label will guarantee the efficiency.

Here are a few other considerations:

  • Alternative Refrigerants – Many refrigerants are detrimental to the environment. In fact R-22 Refrigerant is being phased out and choosing a unit that can run on a safer refrigerant is a great move.

  • Sound Options – Newer technologies like compressor sound blankets help make your heat pump quieter.

  • Moisture Filters – Many units dehumidify the air, but a moisture filter will go a step further and protect parts of your unit from excess moisture, helping extend its life.
