Wow .. if there was a button higher than 5/5 this company definitely would be top of our list. Long story short, we were running on emergency heat last 6 months misdiagnosed by another company, after some research hubby picked Fujitsu as being the most technically advanced heat pump. Mike helped me by offering a contact for rebates as well as moved some appointments to provide immediate professional installation as our house was chilly, amazing workmanship. Thanks so much guys, much appreciated!! PS our dogs loved them too, pet friendly as well 🙂

We had very good service from Mike. He's busy but came at exactly the scheduled time and fixed our heat-pump. Our previous service guys were ripping us off. Mike explained what needed to be done and charged us exactly as Quoted. No surprises. He's our goto guy now.

Our furnace broke during a cold snap. Mike came out the same day, Friday afternoon, gave us an estimate, and started right away on Monday. There were some hardware issues with the new unit, and he had them replaced by the manufacturer as soon as he could, and worked hard and extra long to get everything going for us. He was very professional, knowledgeable and responsive, and seemed to really care about doing a great job and getting us out of the cold. We will continue to use his services for our property. Thanks Mike!

Mike installed a heat pump and header. Service was excellent, very efficient and cost effective compared to WESTILE. System works very well. Mike also followed up in a timely manner (same day) when my receipt was misplaced, enabling me to apply for aFederal rebate.

Heat Pump Repairs

If you're having problems with your heat pump, we can solve them!

Blower Motor Repair or Replacement: The blower motor is a component that circulates air throughout your home. If it malfunctions, the heat pump may fail to distribute warm or cool air evenly, requiring repair or replacement.

Capacitor Replacement: Capacitors are used to store energy and provide the jolt to start the motor and keep it running. If a capacitor fails, the motor can't start, and the heat pump may not operate.

Compressor Repair or Replacement: The compressor pressurizes the refrigerant to release heat. If it fails, the heat pump will not heat or cool effectively, and the compressor may need to be repaired or replaced.

Condenser Coil Cleaning or Replacement: The condenser coil expels heat from the refrigerant. If it becomes dirty or damaged, the heat pump may lose efficiency and require cleaning or replacement of the coil.

Fan Motor Repair or Replacement: The fan motor helps dissipate heat during the cooling process and gather heat during the heating process. If it fails, the heat pump's ability to transfer heat is compromised.

Refrigerant Leak Repair: Refrigerant is the substance that heat pumps use to transfer heat. Leaks can reduce the system’s efficiency and output, causing the heat pump to work harder. These leaks need to be repaired, and the system should be refilled with the correct amount of refrigerant.

Reversing Valve Repair or Replacement: The reversing valve is what allows a heat pump to work as both a heater and an air conditioner by reversing the flow of refrigerant. If it malfunctions, the heat pump may be stuck in one mode.

Thermostat Repair or Replacement: The thermostat controls the operation of the heat pump. If it malfunctions, the heat pump might not turn on or might run continuously.

Defrost Control Repair or Replacement: The defrost control board commands the heat pump to enter defrost mode to prevent the outdoor coil from freezing in winter. If it malfunctions, the heat pump may freeze up, requiring repair or replacement of the control.

Replace Or Repair Your Heat Pump?

Age of the Heat Pump: The average lifespan of a heat pump is typically around 10 to 15 years. If your heat pump is nearing or has exceeded this age range, it might be more cost-effective to replace it with a more efficient model rather than paying for frequent repairs.

Frequency and Cost of Repairs: If your heat pump requires frequent repairs, or if the cost of a necessary repair is significant (a good rule of thumb is if the repair cost is more than 50% of the cost of a new system), it may be more economical in the long run to replace it.

Energy Efficiency: Older heat pumps often have lower efficiency ratings than newer models. If your energy bills have been rising without a clear explanation, it could be that your heat pump is not operating efficiently and might need to be replaced.

Inconsistent Temperatures: If you're noticing inconsistent temperatures or inadequate heating or cooling, your heat pump might be failing. If a repair doesn't resolve the issue, replacement may be the best option.

Excessive Noise or Unusual Sounds: Heat pumps should operate fairly quietly. If your system is making excessive noise or strange sounds even after a repair, it could indicate a serious issue that might warrant replacement.

Frequent Cycling: If your heat pump is constantly turning on and off (a process known as cycling), this could be a sign that your system is not correctly sized for your home or is struggling to maintain the desired temperature. If the issue persists after checking for simpler issues (like a dirty filter) and performing necessary repairs, replacement might be necessary.
