Heating Repair Oklahoma City
If you have a Heat Pump and your home or business is not stating warm as normal you may have an heating issue. The key word is may. Because Heat Pumps can be designed and setup to work with varying parameters.
Examples: Older Heat Pumps (2003 and earlier – varies by model) may have an outdoor thermostat that will disengage the Heat Pump when the outdoor temperature is below a set point. Normally 32*F to 45*F. Newer Heat Pumps (2004 and newer – varies by model) will continue to run with the assistance of auxiliary heat or electric heat strips, electric heat strips are to be used to supplement the Heat Pumps heat and or to be used in an emergency when the Heat Pump needs repair.
Heat Pump performance is also determined by the set-up of the thermostat. In some cases the amount of time the heat pump runs versus the set point for thermostat or desired room temperature may determine if the Heat Pump will run or not run with the assistance of auxiliary heat. Or the thermostat can control the Heat Pump manually by selecting Aux. Heat or Emergency Heat versus normal Heat.
The attached picture is of a Heat Pump that was not working in because of mechanical issues and needed repair. Otherwise it would have been working along with the auxiliary heat to heat the home even in outdoor temperatures below freezing.
If you purchase a home and have never had a Heat Pump to control or understand. Call A.I.R. Plus Inc. for help in understanding what a Heat Pump is and have it serviced semi-annually. Why the service? Because Heat Pumps work to heat your home in the winter and cool your home in the summer. So they do double duty versus a normal A/C unit.

This picture displays an actual blower motor and blower wheel removed from a furnace. The dirt and the build up on the blower wheel is obvious. What you can’t see is the energy cost increasing everyday the furnace operates with out being cleaned and or serviced properly. The dirt build up on the blower decreases it’s designed capacity to provide sufficient air flow to your home. Which in turn does not allow the air temperature to be maintained at a comfortable and consistent level. Therefore the HVAC system runs longer and works harder to provide the desired set temperature on the thermostat. This is why the energy cost to operate it continues to climb year after year!
Another by product of a dirty blower motor and blower wheel is the reduced life of the HVAC equipment! The HVAC equipment will need to run and operate longer to meet it’s demands. HVAC equipment replacement cost are not going down, only up!
