Are you considering a heat pump for your home comfort needs? Or need to replace your current heat pump? Ehlers Heating & Air Conditioning offers expert heat pump installation, replacement, and repair in Livonia and the surrounding area.
During the winter, heat pumps transfer heat from the outside air into your home via refrigerant lines and a compressor. During hot weather, the system is reversed to cool your home by moving heat from the inside out. This ingenious design allows you to have just one system for heating and cooling!
Do Heat Pumps Save Energy?
Yes! Heat pumps are renowned for their energy efficiency. Heat pumps can generate up to three times more heat than the energy they use. The U.S. Department of Energy estimates that heat pumps can cut your use of electricity for heat by up to half.

How is Heat Pump Efficiency Measured?
Because heat pumps act as both air conditioners and heaters, they are subject to two different energy-efficiency rating systems: the Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating (SEER) and the Heating Seasonal Performance Factor (HSPF). Higher ratings mean higher efficiency.
Heat pumps are typically more expensive to purchase than traditional heating and cooling systems. However, using a heat pump for home comfort will save you money on your energy bills over its lifetime. Moreover, heat pumps are dependable and long-lasting, with an average lifespan of 15 years or more when properly installed and maintained.
Call Ehlers Heating & Air Conditioning for heat pump repair in Livonia if your heat pump is:
Frozen or has frost covering it
Operating more noisily than usual or is making unusual noises
Not heating or cooling your home as it should
Heat Pump Replacement
Sometimes it’s more economical to replace your heat pump rather than repair it. If your heat pump is 15+ years old and is breaking down often or not performing like it should, your Ehlers Heating & Air Conditioning tech will examine it and tell you what the best option is. And a new heat pump will be more efficient than your old model. Replacing your heat pump typically results in:
Increased climate comfort in your home
A decrease in your energy costs
