Heat Pump Services in Metro Detroit
Your Local 24-Hour HVAC Company
Heat Pumps are a type of HVAC system that heats and air conditions with exceptional efficiency. Homeowners in areas that regularly dip below freezing in winter may need a backup system installed along with their heat pump or choose a hybrid system. Still, their cooling power is on par with any high-efficiency AC.
To achieve the maximum benefits from a heat pump, you need quality heat pump installation and maintenance, which FLAME Heating, Cooling, Plumbing & Electrical is happy to provide.
Heat Pump Repairs in Detroit, MI, and the Surrounding Areas
With good maintenance, your heat pump will serve you well for a long time. However, no HVAC system is perfect, and you will eventually need heat pump repairs. Scheduling professional service promptly is imperative, as continuing to run a faulty heat pump will lead to more complicated and pricey repairs.
Here are some of the signs that indicate it’s time to call a heat pump repair technician:
- Inadequate heating or cooling power
- Only the heat or only the AC works
- Weak airflow
- Ice forming on the system
- Strange or loud noises
- Unusual smells
- Leaks or excessive moisture
- Switching on and off over and over, AKA short-cycling
- Unexpected spikes in your power bill

A few of the benefits you’ll enjoy with a heat pump:

Heat Pump FAQs
Heat pumps don’t stop working in extreme cold but become less efficient below 20 degrees. In Detroit, MI, and the surrounding areas, temperatures drop low enough that most people either choose a hybrid system or retain furnace or boiler heat as a backup.
There are three basic types of heat pumps—air to air, underground/underwater, and hybrid—and these can be further classified by heat pumps that are also ductless mini-splits, exhaust vent heat pumps, water or ground source heat pumps, and more. The primary difference is where they source their heating and cooling power, except for hybrid systems, which are usually air-to-air systems with an additional energy source to draw on when temperatures drop below freezing.
Never directly cover your heat pump, as this will limit the unit’s airflow to function. It also creates a fire hazard and could cause considerable damage to your equipment.
