Heat Pump Installation & Replacement in Cincinnati

Heat pumps are a popular option for heating and cooling in Cincinnati. Offering reliable temperature control, extremely high energy-efficiency ratings, and year-round comfort is just hard to match.

But while heat pumps are a long-lasting HVAC option, they’ll eventually need an upgrade. When that time comes, Schneller Knochelmann Plumbing, Heating & Air can help.

Our certified heat pump specialists have served Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky home and business owners for generations. We offer leading services and customer-focused options, ensuring you get the best heat pump replacement for your needs.

The Benefits of Installing a New Heat Pump

Heat pump technology has been a heating and cooling favorite in the HVAC industry for years. And modern design and implementations have only made this strong option even stronger.

The benefits of a new heat pump installation in Cincinnati include:

  • Superior energy efficiency: Traditional air-source heat pumps are some of the most efficient on the market — second only to a ground-source (geothermal) heat pump. That means you’re getting an awesome home comfort solution and one of the most cost-effective and smart options.
  • Versatile home comfort solutions: Heat pumps are a comprehensive HVAC system, meaning they offer excellent performance in both heating and cooling. For total comfort in Ohio and Kentucky, you won’t find a more ideal option.
  • Strong, even heating and cooling: Unlike some other systems, heat pumps provide exceptionally even comfort control. That means no hot or cold spots, just good, clean, comfortable temperature control.
  • Extended system life spans: Heat pumps, especially when routinely maintained by professionals, are known to last a long time. That makes them a very wise investment — especially when combined with their high efficiency ratings.

Heat Pump Replacement vs. Repair

It can often be difficult to choose between heat pump repair and replacement. Not sure which service you’re looking for? Here are some clear signs that a replacement is best:

  • Repairs become too frequent: It’s understandable to shoot for a repair first. But if that repair can’t resolve the issue, or if you need the same repair again, replacement becomes a lot less costly and less stressful.
  • Your repair needs are too costly: Major component failure can often cost an arm, and maybe even a leg, too. If your repair bill makes you balk, you might enjoy the benefits of a new system for a similar or even lesser cost.
  • Your energy costs are going up: The efficiency of a heat pump usually results in pretty low HVAC costs. So when these start to spike, you know something isn’t right. The issue may be repairable, but equally often, it’s simply time for a replacement.
  • Your heat pump is getting old: After 10 to 15 years (depending on use and maintenance regularity) you’ll probably notice your system lagging and costing a lot more to run. When this happens, a new system will reduce your bills back to normal.
  • You need more heating or cooling power: Just not getting the power and temperature control you’re used to? Wrestling with high humidity in the summer? No sense in paying for something you’re not going to get from your outdated or underperforming system — it’s time for replacement.

A replacement can become necessary for a variety of reasons, but no matter why you need it, you know you want the best possible system and service.

Our highly skilled and expertly trained team works directly with you every step of the way, ensuring you get a new heat pump that’s specifically tailored to your unique needs.

Once the best system has been chosen, we offer you an installation service that optimizes your new heat pump for perfect performance and maximum efficiency. 

Save Money When You Choose Schneller Knochelmann

Heat Pump Installation FAQs

Is a heat pump right for my home?

Heat pumps work well in any temperatures above freezing. They can both heat and cool the home, using the heat energy from outside to do so quite efficiently. In Kentucky and Ohio, this works quite well.

Most local heat pumps have a backup electric or gas furnace to ensure the home stays warm in the winter when temperatures dip below freezing.

How long will a heat pump last?

The average lifespan of a unit is around 15 years. If yours is nearing this time frame, you may want to start planning for the installation of a new one. This is when your system is more likely to break down, leaving you without proper heating and cooling.

Where should a new heat pump be installed?

Most of the time, the warmest location in your home is the best place to put the outdoor unit, such as a north or west-facing wall. The better the temperature difference between the indoor air and the outdoor air, the more efficiently the unit will run.

Our technicians will help with the entire installation, ensuring your unit is perfectly positioned to run as efficiently and effectively as possible.

Can I install my own heat pump?

Heat pump installation requires the help of a licensed HVAC professional. These systems are too complex to be installed as a DIY project because mistakes could be costly.
