Heat Pumps

Heat pump service.

Airclaws, is experienced in the service, repair, and installation of heat pumps in Amesville, OH, 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 Airclaws 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.

“Airclaws has been providing my HVAC, air quality, and water heater services for many years now. They've always been courteous, friendly, and very professional. The level of their serious is magnificent. Most recently there'd been an issue with the flu pipe on my heat pump. I'd had other services provided by another company in the vacenity of my air pump around the time Airclaws had been there. The flu pipe had been broken. The other company denied breaking it. Airclaws takes befor and after service pictures of where they work. The pictures showed the pipe was in good condition after they'd been here. They even called the other company for me to discuss the incident, but the other company denied responsibility. The repair was going to cost me a lot, but Airclaws decided to come in and repair it for free. That's really going above and beyond! That's integrity!”

“Steve was great. Adrian was great! Tina was great.

Pricing for diagnostic was exorbitant. Only took Steve about 1/2 hour – price should be connected to amount of trouble shooting needed.

Pricing for installation was exorbitant. A simple fan replacement. Pricing should be tied to the amount of time and challenge to replace!

Love your people, not your pricing!”

“I recently had an employee of AirClaws, Kyle Cunningham, come to my home for my yearly maintenance inspection. Kyle arrived on time and after introducing himself he went straight to work. After his inspection was completed, he gave me the good news that my heat pump/air conditioning system was in very good working condition. I really want to comment on the professionalism Kyle showed while he was here. I could tell from the minute he walked in the door that he truly cares about doing his job and doing it well. He was friendly, trustworthy, and I know he is an excellent employee and a wonderful father and husband. AirClaws should be very proud to have Kyle as their employee, his dedication and kindness shines through.”
