Why Won’t My Heat Pump Heat?

November 16th, 2015

Here in the Northeast, our winters are very long, and very cold. There was a time when the severity of our winter weather meant that heat pumps simply were not a reliable heating option. Because heat pumps use existing heat in the air outside in order to facilitate the heating of one’s home, extremely cold temperatures could overwhelm the system, leaving homeowners uncomfortably cold in their own homes. Today’s heat pumps, though, are much more effective at operating in very cold temperatures. Just remember that your heat pump in Springfield, VT can still run into operational problems, just like any other home heating system. If you find that your heat pump just won’t blow hot air, one of the following issues may be to blame. Contact HB Energy Solutions for your heat pump service needs. Continue Reading

Read on for some examples of how using a humidifier this winter can benefit you, and remember to schedule all of your heating and indoor air quality services with the professionals here at HB Energy Solutions.
