Frank's Heating & Refrigeration is experienced in the service, repair, and installation of heat pumps in Crescent City, CA, and its surrounding area. A heat pump is a device that transfers heat from one place to another, from indoors to outdoors or from outdoors to indoors. For homes with no access to natural gas, heat pumps offer an efficient and reliable solution for heating and cooling.

How Do Heat Pumps Work?

In the winter, a heat pump works like a heater, extracting heat energy from outside and transferring it inside. In the summer, the process reverses, and it will remove heat from your home and transfer it outside like an air conditioner. Heat pumps do this so well that many people in warmer climates exclusively rely on a heat pump for year-round comfort. For those living in colder climates, they use electric-powered heat pumps in conjunction with their gas or oil furnace resulting in lower heating costs.

Heat pumps work with a series of coils drawing energy from air, water, or the ground. In this way, they are very environmentally friendly and are the most energy-efficient way to heat and cool your home. Heat pumps also work extremely efficiently, because they simply transfer heat, rather than burn fuel to create it. This makes them a greener alternative to traditional gas or oil furnaces. Though you may think you’re unfamiliar with them, they traditionally heat swimming pools and hot tubs, so you most likely have come in contact with them and not even known it.

Different Types of Heat Pumps

There are three types of heat pumps: air-to-air, water source, and geothermal. As mentioned above, they collect their heat from the air, water, and outside-your-home ground and concentrate it for use. Call Frank's Heating & Refrigeration to discuss the basic differences between these types and which one would work best for you and your home.

Are Heat Pumps Expensive?

Installation costs of heat pumps are higher than with a traditional furnace or air conditioner, but the savings over time in annual energy costs make up for the difference in five to ten years. Performing proper operation and maintenance of your heat pump will also save you money, as you’ll use less energy, thus resulting in less cost. Be sure to ask your HVAC professional for the proper thermostat setting and the indoor pump’s fan operation. Not following the recommended guidelines can inhibit the maximized running of the pump and can degrade the unit itself. Regular maintenance can prevent degradation as well. Consistent filter changing or cleaning is necessary for a well-running heat pump. Seasonal cleaning of coils and fans go a long way in preventing poor energy efficiency that can end up costing you more money. The energy difference between a well-maintained system and a neglected one can be anywhere from 10 to 25 percent.

“From the start to the finish, this has been a fantastic company to work with. Jesse got back to me on the weekend to set up what started as a repair. When Steven called to do the repair we talked it through , I wanted his honest opinion and he gave it to me, which I appreciated. Rather than waste time and money I opted for a new system as ours was 33 yrs old. Jesse set that up quickly also.
Eric came out to go over everything for a new system. We felt at ease dealing with him. He explained a couple things twice to us just because we are new to this. He was very understanding of our needs and I felt like we were in good hands.
It got even better with the installation. Brad did our install, he was here over 2 days and was so courteous and kind. He needed help moving some items and said another technician would be by. The other technician turned out to be Steve, the person who runs the company. They were short staffed at the moment so he came out. Quite impressed that he had his employees backs.
All in all, this has been a good decision on our part to go with this company. We’re quite pleased that we will be having them service our Heat pump for years down the road.”

Heat Pump Repair in Crescent City, CA 95531

“The Ac and heating system was installed by FRANKS about 15 years ago. During that time I have had only 4 repairs, and yearly maintenance. The repair that was done today involved wires chewed by my dog, causing the system not to heat properly. Ryan was able to find the wires, that were buried in mud by my dog, and splice them together. The handler and heat pump are now working, and the house is warm again. I can't thank Ryan enough for fixing it. Great system that works flawlessly once you set the thermostatic. Set it and forget it!”
