Jacksonville Heating Specialists Heat Pump Repair and Installation Services
Over the past few decades, Northeast Florida homes and businesses have been transitioning from traditional oil and gas burning heating systems to energy efficient and affordable Heat Pumps. Southern winter temperatures have remained warm enough in this temperate climate, even when the temperature reaches the freezing mark, to heat homes with the same HVAC (heating, ventilation, air conditioning) system that is used to cool when temperatures climb. Since technology has enabled these heating and cooling systems to be combined, as older air conditioning systems were being replaced, there is less of a need for buying heating oil and maintaining furnaces. TemperaturePro of NE Florida is qualified to repair and maintain all HVAC makes and models on the market today. We bring years of expertise to troubleshooting system problems and also install new equipment, when older units no longer are up to the task of heating efficiently.
How a Heat Pump Works
Heat pump technology is relatively simple to understand. Almost every air conditioner sold in the Southern States today utilizes a cooling and heating device built into the system. No longer is it necessary to have two separate systems to heat and cool a dwelling. This new product has been designated as a “Heat Pump”. Let us explain. When Willis Carrier invented a basic cooling cycle to be used to cool indoor air over a century ago, warm air was forced over a cooled pipe to reduce the temperature of the air. Similarly, todays systems collect’s heat at the indoor evaporator coil, where special refrigerant chemicals absorb the heat and turn it into gas. The system then pumps the refrigerated gas to an outside coil and a compressor forces the gas into a liquid state. This second changeover phase actually releases heat outside the home or building: meanwhile the liquid refrigerant cycles back to the indoor coil to collect more heat from the air and this cycle is repeated over and over again. Heat Pumps actually work in the same exact way with one difference. The cycle of the system is reversed. During warm months, the heat pump system pumps heat out of the dwelling, acting like an air conditioner, cooling down the temperature of the indoor air. During cold months, the HVAC system collects heat from the outdoor air and pumps it inside the dwelling, heating the air. These Heat Pump systems depend of finding some heat in the outdoor air so they are well suited for southern climates. Where temperatures are consistently below freezing for long periods of time, heat cannot be acquired from the outside air and Heat Pumps have no relative value. But in areas like Florida where mild temperatures are enjoyed in the wintertime, they work extremely and efficiently well.
Heat Pump Installation, Maintenance and Repair
Like any good HVAC system, heat pumps work best when they’re properly sized for the homes they heat and cool. At TemperaturePro we assess your heating and cooling needs prior to replacement or new system installation. We then work with you to find a heat pump that can match those needs. Because heat pumps stay in operation all year long, heating in the winter and cooling in the summer, regular professional maintenance is strongly recommended. Good home maintenance helps like changing filters according to the manufacturer, but most homeowners find that professional service is a wise investment in these dual-use systems. During any maintenance visit, we’ll not only clear up any emerging issues that could lead to future repairs but also work to ensure that your heat pump runs at peak efficiency. You’ll normally save money on your electric bill and even more down the road by avoiding expensive breakdowns.
Even a well-maintained heat pump might run into issues at any time, and whether that’s a shutdown during a July heat wave or failure to start during a January cold spell, those issues can put your family’s comfort at risk. That’s why we’re available 24 hours a day for emergency heat pump repair. Our flat-rate pricing service means you’ll never be surprised by repair costs, and qualified technicians are fully capable of making repairs on all makes and models of heat pumps.
Jacksonville Furnace Repair Reliable Furnace Installation
Even in the relatively mild climate of the Jacksonville area, winter chills are common enough that it’s important to have a reliable heating system. For many homeowners who either have an existing furnace or the means to purchase a separate cooling and heating system, oil or gas burning furnaces are the source. A good furnace can last 20 years or more if it’s properly maintained, but to make the most of your heating system, you’ll need to turn to your local heating experts. That’s where we at TemperaturePro of NE Florida come in.

In our many years in the HVAC industry, one thing we’ve discovered is that one of the top causes of furnace issues is improper installation. Our technicians can assess the heat your home loses through its walls, roof, windows and doors etc., then work with you to choose a furnace that will meet your heating needs. The benefit is more efficient heating and less strain on the system.
Our technicians are familiar with state and local building codes as well as the manufacturer’s specifications, and we make sure every system we install meets or exceeds those standards. You’ll be well-positioned to make the most of your new furnace, year-in and year-out.
Furnace Service and Repair
Furnaces can last two decades or more, but in order to make the most of your heating system, you’ll need to have it properly maintained. While there’s a number of things you can do as a homeowner to keep your furnace running well, the best way to ensure peak performance is to invest in professional maintenance. Here are some of the things we’ll do during a typical furnace service visit:
- Inspect and, if necessary, change the air filter
- Lubricate moving parts
- Check system controls
- Clean and inspect the burner assembly
- Inspect electrical wiring for damage
- Check fuel lines for leaks
- Calibrate the thermostat
Proper maintenance will not only extend the lifespan of your furnace but also improve its fuel efficiency. You’ll save money two ways by cutting your monthly utility bills over time and preventing expensive breakdowns and system replacements down the road. Moreover, there’s a peace of mind that comes with knowing your heater is in capable hands.
Even a well-maintained furnace has a chance of running into trouble. If yours won’t start in the middle of a winter cold snap, our furnace repair team is available 24 hours a day for emergency repairs.
