Heat pumps are electrical machines that transport heated air in their most basic form. They use outdoor and indoor units to get airflow inside your home. These are not novel technologies; most air conditioners and refrigeration machines employ comparable parts. Similar to reversible refrigerators, heat pumps function.

During the summer, air-source heat pumps extract warmth from the house and release it outdoors, giving you cool air inside. They also transfer heat from the outside air to the home’s interior throughout the winter. Heat pumps have a five-degree Fahrenheit operating range.

Heat pumps have two operating modes: heating and cooling. With an effective Santa Rosa heat pump system, you can control every aspect of the climate in your home! You will always have the right amount of hot and cool air during the summer and winter.

Do you have other issues regarding a heat pump’s compatibility with your home’s electrical system? Call John Owens Services Inc. to make an appointment for a Santa Rosa HVAC specialist to visit your home and provide free estimates for potential upgrades.

What Types of Heat Pump Are There?

Ducted Systems

Air-source heat pumps with ductwork transfer hot air outside to the inside or outside of your home for cooling. They can connect to the ductwork already installed in your home.

Ductless Systems

Ductless systems work similarly to ducted heat pumps but with one outdoor unit connected to individual indoor units that can provide heating and cooling to different rooms in the home.


Air-to-air heating and cooling systems can move hot air inside or outside your home to provide heating or cooling. Among the brands of heat pumps we work with for this type of system are Mitsubishi and American Standard.


Air-to-water systems can be used for radiant heating on floors and space heating. They transfer the heat from outside into water that can warm your home through the radiators on your floor or store hot water for use in plumbing fixtures.

Will my system work in snow and cold weather?

In our climate zone, heat pumps work very well because we have a pretty mild climate with few extreme temperatures. They work most efficiently when operating in warmer weather, but they are 100% efficient down to 37 degrees. The more warmth it can extract from the surrounding air, the more efficiently it operates. If you are in a region that has snow or extremely cold weather, look into installing a hyper-heat unit. Hyper-heat units are efficient in single-digit weather.

Why is this steam or smoke coming off of my unit?

Do not worry! This is normal behavior for the unit. Typically, when the weather gets colder, heat pumps have to go into a defrost cycle. Coils tend to frost up, causing the unit to lose efficiency. This defrost cycle creates steam that rises from the unit and can be mistaken for smoke. Defrost cycles happen more frequently in snowy or extremely cold weather.

Why does my house take longer to reach the desired temperature?

The short answer is that a heat pump does not have as hot a temperature when leaving the registers in the home. When you install a heat pump, you are installing a high-efficiency electric heating and cooling unit that moves heat from one place to another. This differs from standard gas or propane furnaces, which burn fuel to create heat. With a heat pump, the colder the weather, the longer the system will take to warm the home because there is less heat to transfer. Since these units are highly efficient, keeping your system at a set temperature is recommended and letting the heat pump maintain a low and slow pace.
