Heat Pump Systems and Service in Santa Fe, NM

Glorieta Creek Mechanical LLC - Heat Pumps

Santa Fe, NM makes an ideal climate for the use of heat pumps, which combine the functions of a heater and an air conditioner into one unit. Our high elevation means that summers are warm but not blazing, and while winters get cold, they don’t approach the deep freezes people experience further north. A heat pump is an ideal way to handle any aspect of your household’s comfort needs, and can save money by being more efficient than other types of heating and cooling.

Of course, you still need a qualified technician to install, repair, and maintain your heat pump: one that knows how such systems work and can perform any operation with the skill that comes from practical experience. Glorieta Creek Mechanical LLC has the training and the tools to assist you with all aspects of your heat pump, from installation to replacement, and can be there in an emergency to get things back to the way you need them. We’re just a phone call away, so don’t hesitate to contact us!

How Do Heat Pumps Do Their Job?

In essence, a heat pump is no different than a traditional air conditioner. It depends on a closed circle of continuously cycling refrigerant, which is first compressed and liquefied (releasing heat into the air), then allowed to revert to gaseous form (pulling heat from the air). In a regular air conditioner, hot air is released outside your home and cool air then blown into the ducts. With heat pumps, that cycle can be reversed, releasing hot air inside and cooling the air outside. That lets you keep your home comfortable no matter what the weather in Santa Fe is doing outside.

Trouble with Heat Pumps

Heat pumps run into the same problems as air conditioners do: anything from leaking refrigerant to broken fan motors. To that, you can add unique issues that heat pumps alone display, such as trouble with the reversing valve. For that reason, you need a Santa Fe service that won’t just transpose basic air conditioning knowledge to your particular problem. You want someone with experience handling heat pumps and who won’t hesitate in the face of your problem. Repairs done the right way mean a better functioning system and less of a chance of recurring mechanical issues affecting your system down the line.
