Heat Pumps and Air Handlers

Air Authority is not the premier HVAC company in the Greater Cincinnati area by accident. Beyond quality and expertise, honesty and integrity are the hallmarks of Air Authority. When it comes to your heating and cooling needs, you can count on us to give you exactly what you need.

If your house is getting too warm in the summer or too hot in the winter, you may not need to get a new furnace or central air conditioning unit. A heat pump, installed outside of your home, cools or heats the air. Then it pushes the air into your house to help you get comfortable again. Air Authority will inspect your heat pump and repair or replace it for you. We will even give a free second opinion for any contractor offer you have, so you can feel confident in what you need and what you get.

If your heat pump is more than ten years old, or if it requires more repair work than makes sense, you may need to replace it. Fortunately, we have the answer for your needs. Air Authority uses Trane products exclusively, ensuring high quality and efficiency to keep both your home and your budget comfortable for years to come.Moreover, our expert technicians average between twelve and fifteen years in the industry, so you can count on us to not only get you a great heat pump, but to install it flawlessly.

Even if we are not your first call, Air Authority is ready to help. We offer a free second opinion on any estimate you receive, so you can have peace of mind in knowing you are getting the right service at the right price. Financing is available with approved credit to help make it a worry-free process.

Let’s Talk About The Repair

It can be easy to let small issues go in the house. The house might be a little warmer or cooler than you like, but you may assume it will pass once the weather gets better. Instead of waiting for the problem to get bigger (and more expensive!), this is the time to call Air Authority. We will come out and give a free inspection. It may be something as simple as fixing loose fan belts, cleaning condensing coils, or changing a filter. We will evaluate and test your unit, removing the guesswork and letting you know exactly what you need. Let us take care of the little problems before they become big ones.

Let’s Talk About The Maintenance

Even if nothing feels wrong, a performance and safety check each fall and spring can help make sure your heat pump is running efficiently. Small issues can cost big money if your heat pump runs inefficiently. And if those small issues aren’t fixed, they can lead to big issues down the road. We will put our 40 years of experience to work to keep everything running smoothly, and to help you get the most out of your heat pump for years to come.

Whether your heat pump needs replacement, repairs, or general maintenance, you can count on Air Authority to give you the best service anywhere. Call today to let us earn your business.

An all-electric home is commonly heated and cooled by a heat pump. During the winter, it works by the following three steps:

1. First, it extracts heat from the outdoor air and transfers it to an indoor coil.

2. Next, the indoor coil forces the air through the coil by the fan in the furnace and warms the building’s air.

3. When the air’s temperature drops below a certain preset amount (20-30 degrees), the thermostat shuts down the heat pump and the furnace takes over. This process is reversed during the summer and the heat pump acts like an air conditioner to cool your home.

The heat pump system may be malfunctioning if:

 your outside heat pump unit is running and the temperature is 3 degrees or more below the temperatures set point you have selected on your thermostat.

 your back-up heat source (electric, gas, or oil furnace) is running rather than your heat pump during winter days that have mild (above 40 degree) temperatures.Listen for abnormal sounds from the indoor air handler unit or outdoor unit that are signs of problems. The heat pump system should be shut down and a professional contacted ASAP.
