Heat Pumps outside a house

What Is a Heat Pump?

A heat pump is an appliance for both heating and cooling your home or business. It works by transferring heat out of your property in the summer and pumping heat into it during the winter. Similar to a refrigerator, heat pumps evaporate refrigerants at lower pressures in order to soak heat from their surroundings. They then condense the refrigerant at higher pressures on the adjacent coil to discharge the heat they had soaked.

Our heat pumps for Vancouver Island properties are generally more energy-efficient than furnaces. Transferring heat requires less energy than generating heat, which means these pumps help you cut down on your emissions. Heat pumps are incredibly versatile and can meet various structural requirements.  Are you on the fence about investing in a heat pump? Our team is happy to discuss your requirements and concerns and give informed recommendations.

We can help you utilize rebates through CleanBC and/or our manufacturers to make heat pump installations more affordable. Just ask us how!

Installation Services

At Strategic Mechanical Services, you can trust our technicians to install all types of heat pump makes and models. Our Nanaimo and Vancouver Island-based heat pump service techs can help you choose the right heat pump solution for your residential or commercial space, based on your structural allowances and budget.

Some of the steps that are involved in heat pump installation are:

  • Step 1: The condenser is installed and placed outside the house or building.
  • Step 2: An air handler mount is installed, which releases cold or warm air inside.
  • Step 3: The connection between the air handler and the condenser is established.
  • Step 4: All possible wires, refrigerant lines, and others, are covered to avoid accidents.
  • Step 5: Final connections and airflow check takes place along with adding the covers.

The cost for installing a heat pump depends on how it is installed and the size of your room, along with the heat pump model. Call us today to learn about energy-efficient rebates that may be available to you, or visit to see what is currently promoted!

Repairs & Servicing

Apart from installing heat pumps in Nanaimo, we also repair and service them. You might not always be able to tell that there is something wrong with your heat pump. Neglecting heat pump repairs can worsen the damage and force you to spend more money in the long run. Some common signs your heat pump requires repairs are:

  • Old age: With proper care and maintenance, heat pumps can last a long time. However, if your heat pump is older than 15 years and not working as it should, we recommend replacing it.

  • Ice on coil: The outdoor unit of a heat pump tends to develop ice as its functions during heat mode. However, excessive ice development and lack of defrosting mean there is an issue. Ignoring this can affect the system's airflow.

  • Restricted airflow: Proper airflow is essential for a heat pump's functioning. If you've noticed restrictions in your pump's airflow, ice, dust buildup, and the infiltration of foreign particles might be causing the issue.

  • Rising bills: If your home or commercial space feels colder and there is a spike in your energy bill, your heating pump might be to blame. Lower temperatures in your house during the winter could also mean the pump is blowing cold air into it.

  • Strange noises: Some noises from your heat pump are not uncommon. However, if you constantly hear clicking and other odd noises from your heat pump, there might be an issue requiring repair.

If you notice anything amiss with your heat pump in Nanaimo, please reach out to us. For those that have an existing heat pump installed, we recommend you clean your heat pump at least once a year. Routine cleaning and maintenance can help prevent expensive heat pump repairs. Contact us for routine maintenance during seasonal changes and major temperature fluctuations.
