If you’re constantly paying higher utility bills that are putting a strain on your family’s budget, the solution to your problem may be a heat pump system from MSCO Heating & Cooling.
Heat Pump Systems Explained
In case you’re not already familiar with them, a heat pump is essentially a system that moves heat in and out of your home. In summer it works like an air conditioning system. The refrigerant in the indoor part of the system absorbs heat from the interior of your house and transfers it to the exterior, cooling your home.
In winter, the system acts like an air conditioner in reverse. Surprisingly, outside air, even on the coldest days, contains heat, and the refrigerant in an air source heat pump absorbs that heat and transfers it indoors, keeping your home warm as Mother Nature rages outside.
A variation is a geothermal system that extracts heat from the ground in winter to warm your home. In summer, it removes heat from the interior of your home, releasing the heat into the ground, while keeping your home cool.
In the final analysis, what a heat pump system in your home is doing is transferring heat. It moves heat out of your house in summer and brings heat back in during the winter months. Since transferring heat requires less energy than generating heat, a heat pump system tends to be more energy efficient than a traditional HVAC system.

As efficient as they are, like any piece of equipment, parts in a heat pump can wear out and malfunction. If your heat pump system is not operating as it should, not cooling in summer or providing heat in winter, there are some DIY checks you can make yourself.
- Check the thermostat setting.
- Check your system’s circuit breaker to make sure it hasn’t been tripped.
- Check your system’s outside airflow to make sure it’s not blocked.
If these simple DIY steps don’t correct your problem, and in particular, if you’re hearing strange noises from your system or it’s emitting strange smells, it’s time to call in the repair specialists from MSCO Heating & Cooling.
