The easiest way to tell if you have a Heat Pump is to look at your thermostat and look at the options you have. If your thermostat has a switch for Auxiallary Heat or Emergency (Back-up) Heat you more than likely have a Heat Pump installed in your home or business. The next way to determine if you a Heat Pump is to set your thermostat to Heat and walk to your outiside unit. If your outside unit is running with the thermostat set to Heat you have a Heat Pump. If you switch the thermostat to Aux or Emergency Heat the outdoor unit should power off and the back-up heat will begin to work and you should feel warm air coming from your vents. These are just some basic steps to review the type of HVAC system you may have and is not infallable, but it can steer you in the right direction. To be sure always contact an HVAC Contractor /Professional. Heat Pumps are very energy efficient and have proven to be a reliable piece of HVAC Equipment.

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!
Lastly your lack of comfort is the end result! Financially and Physically!

The example you see above is an extreme example, but a often seen issue in homes and businesses. A furnace will cycle on and off very rapidly if a dirty air filter is present. This leads to premature failure of equipment, increased energy use and decreases the level of comfort in your home or business. Air handlers with heat pumps or electric heat strips will experience similar issues if a dirty air filter is present.
An air filter must be changed based on it’s design and enviroment. The design and make of the air filter may call for a change every 30 days or in some cases every 90 days. If the environment is unusual in that a lot of dust or dirt is present then the air filter may need to be changed more frequently. i.e. weekly.
What ever the case may be for your hvac system and it’s air filteration system. Changing your air filters is always a positive way to save money and to improve your comfort!
