Heat Pump Installation Services in North County, CA

Homeowners often overlook their home’s heat pump until there is a problem. That’s why having them properly installed from the start is of the utmost importance. If you’re considering a heat pump for your Carlsbad, Encinitas, or Vista area home, here’s what you need to know to have it done right the first time.

There are many reasons to choose a heat pump, with its ability to both heat and cool topping the list. These versatile systems move warm air from the outside to the inside of the home while in heating mode and work in reverse to transfer warm air from inside the home to the outside while in cooling mode. That makes them perfect for areas like North San Diego County where winters are mild.


Getting an optimal service life for your heat pump begins with flawless heat pump installation—after all, a faulty installation job can lead to unreliable performance and could interfere with your manufacturer’s warranty. At Sherlock Plumbing, Heating & Air, we are proud to be one of the area’s leading companies to offer heat pump services and products.

We know that one size does not fit all when it comes to heat pumps, so our team of industry experts determines the best choice for you by checking out your home’s dimensions, layout, duct measurements and heat loss points. We then test to verify that it is working within the proper specifications to deliver long-lasting performance. Investing in professional heat pump installation also ensures that your unit is operating at maximum efficiency and reduces the need for future repairs.

Reach out to Sherlock Plumbing, Heating & Air today by calling 760-295-5014, and our trained technicians will help determine the right heat pump for your Vista, Carlsbad, Oceanside, Encinitas, or San Marcos area home.

Are heat pumps more energy efficient than furnaces?

Yes! Since heat pumps don’t burn any fuel to create heat, they can reduce electricity use for heating by as much as 50% compared to furnaces. That makes them a better choice for your wallet and the environment.

How long do heat pumps last?

While several factors play a role in the service life of a heat pump, they normally last an average of 15 years when installed properly and maintained regularly. The most important factor in lengthening the life span of your heat pump is routine maintenance.

Does my heat pump need regular maintenance?

Although a neglected system can still operate for many years, a regularly maintained heat pump can run up to 25% more efficiently. Homeowners can do some of the work on their own, such as cleaning air filters and vacuuming the coils, but there are many critical steps that require specialized training. That’s why you should schedule regular heat pump maintenance to help your system last longer with fewer repairs.

How can I tell if I need heat pump repairs or replacement?

Noisy operation, inadequate heating or cooling, and rising heating costs are all signs that your system is in need of a check-up. Our specially trained technicians have the skills necessary to fix any issue you may have, from minor heat pump repairs to a full heat pump replacement.


If you’re interested in heat pump installation for your North County home, leave it to the professionals at Sherlock Plumbing, Heating & Air. Our certified technicians have the tools and skills necessary to get your heat pump up and running for ultimate home comfort. Ready to make the energy-efficient switch to heat pump comfort in your Carlsbad or San Marcos area home?
