At Aloha Air Conditioning & Heating, when things change, they generally change for the better. And when they stay the same, it’s because you wouldn’t have us any other way.
I Have A Heat Pump And My Electric Bill Was High. What Could This Mean?If the electric rates haven’t increased during that time period and you aren’t experiencing a colder than normal winter, this could indicate a problem with your system. Contained within the air handler on your heat pump system is a set of electric heaters that serve as a back up to your outdoor unit during the winter months. If the outdoor unit isn’t working properly, the electric heaters will run more frequently in order to meet the heating demand of the home. There are also controls involved with the operation of the electric heaters that may be malfunctioning and allowing the heaters to remain on even though there is no requirement for their operation. These problems may only be diagnosed by a properly trained and qualified HVAC Service Technician.
What Do I Do If I Smell Gas?Evacuate yourself and any other persons/pets from inside the home immediately. Using a phone located outside of the home, call your local gas utility and/or the fire department.
What Is Carbon Monoxide?Carbon monoxide (CO) is a colorless, odorless and toxic gas. The Environmental Protection Agency warns that at low levels of exposure, CO causes mild effects that are often mistaken for the flu. These symptoms include headaches, dizziness, disorientation, nausea, and fatigue. Many online resources and fact sheets are available to answer questions about carbon monoxide. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) recommends that every home should have a carbon monoxide (CO) alarm. The CO detector will audibly alert the homeowner to the danger of the unacceptable CO level. For more information on Carbon Monoxide, click on the following links: www.cdc.gov & www.epa.gov.
What Is Happening When I See Smoke Come Out Of The Top Of My Heat Pump?Every so often your heat pump has the opportunity to go into defrost either by timed or what we call on demand. When this happens it basically goes into air-conditioning mode and you will hear a “swish” sound. The four way valve on your system, what we call the “reversing valve” is switching the direction of hot gas into the coils to melt ice. This is normal operation and once ice is melted your system will go back to normal operation.
What Is Happening When I See Ice On My Unit?You may see “frost” or “ice” on the outdoor unit because the coil of the heat pump is colder that the air surrounding it and when that air is below freezing, frost or icing will occur, but should melt with in 1 ½ hours as this is the timing sequence most defrost controls use to check for this condition in our area.

What Is Involved in Preparing for a Heating Installation?
If you are having a heating system installed in your house, you have made a wise decision. All it takes is one night of shivering in the cold to know that winters here in Tennessee are meant to be taken seriously. Choosing a heater system is not always the easiest, however. Not only do you have to decide between traditional furnaces and boilers, or even between innovative heat pumps and ductless mini-splits, but you will need to find a reliable brand that is both affordable and efficient.
Selecting the right size to match your building’s unique capabilities is another critical element, or your heater will end up using a lot more energy than is necessary, which will cause utility bills to rise. Finally, your system must be built to withstand many years of use, which means the installation can only be trusted to experienced technicians. For a thorough discussion of what else you need for your new installation, speak to our talented experts.
Choosing a company that offers the products and services you want is just the first step in the selection process. We’re customers too, and we wouldn’t make an important purchasing decision on impulse anymore than you.
