If your heating equipment is 10-15 years old and is not heating your home like it used to, it may be nearing the end of its optimal life. Even high-quality systems will eventually lose efficiency and will need to be replaced. Our installation experts can come to your home and let you know how much time you have left with your furnace and can make recommendations to prepare for a new unit. Newer systems are much more energy efficient than models available even just a few years ago.
Are you looking to lower your carbon footprint and energy costs? Consider a heat pump for your Texas home.
Unlike a gas furnace or boiler, electric heat pumps do not rely on combustion to generate warmth—they transfer heat to make your home comfortable.
Modern heat pumps use up to 50 percent less energy than an electric furnace or baseboard heating system, according to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). Additionally, they provide heating and air conditioning, so you only have to maintain one unit instead of two.
Because heat pumps are so efficient and versatile, many Texas residents favor them over the traditional air conditioner and furnace combination. The comfort and long-term savings are a huge draw.
Whether you need assistance with heat pump installation, repair, or maintenance services, Rohde Air Conditioning is here to help; your home and family’s comfort is our top priority.
How Do Heat Pumps Work?
Air-source heat pumps (ASHP) are the most popular type of heat pump. When the weather turns cold, these units use an outdoor heat exchanger coil to capture heat from the air and transfer it indoors.
Next, the heat travels up the refrigerant line to the indoor heat exchanger coil. Finally, the heat gets fed into an air handler and sent through your air ducts. If you’re using an ASHP water heater, the indoor module sends the heat there as well.
During the summer, the process works in reverse. The indoor heat exchanger sends heat and humidity outside (much like an air conditioner) to cool your home.

Heat Pump Maintenance
A well-maintained heat pump will run efficiently for 10 to 15 years. Your heat pump gets heavy use—especially if you have it running year-round for heating and cooling. That’s why seasonal maintenance is a must for making your investment last.
Here are some of the many things your technician will do during a check-up:
- Clean condenser coils and condensate drain
- Check for safe refrigerant levels
- Inspect and tune up electrical connections
In addition to professional maintenance visits, remember to change your air filter at least every 90 days to prevent mechanical problems. Changing your filter can also lower your energy costs by 15 percent.
Be sure to ask about our Maintenance Plan tailored to your budget and needs. Preventative maintenance allows your technician to check for hidden mechanical or safety issues before they become larger problems.
