Types of Heat Pumps
While there are different types of heat pumps, they all work in a similar way and have the ability to both warm and cool your home. In heating mode, heat is transferred from outdoors to warm the inside of your home. In the cooling mode, the system reverses direction to move the heat from indoors out of your home and returns cooled air into the house. How this heat is transferred varies, depending on the type of heat pump.
The Three Types of Heat Pumps Include:
- Air source heat pumps – Air source heat pumps are the most common. These models use the exterior air temperature to transfer heat.
- Geothermal heat pumps – Geothermal systems use the stable temperature of the earth at depths below six feet.
- Ductless mini-split systems – A ductless mini-split works like an air source heat pump to warm and cool specific areas of the house

Why is My Heat Pump Making Strange Noises?
When a heat pump is running normally it is common to hear a mild humming or buzzing sound. This is caused by the electricity running through the coils and contractors inside the heat pump unit. There are uncommon sounds that can be indicators of a problem with the heat pump.
Sounds that could indicate an issue with a heat pump:
- Metal-on Metal
- Loud Shrieking
When these noises start up, the first thing heat pump owners should check is the air filter. After that, if replacing the filter does not solve the problem it is possible there is a major repair needed. If you are experiencing loud and strange noises coming from your heat pump, don't hesitate to contact the heat pump repair experts at Avery Heating & Air Conditioning!
