Heat Pumps

More and more homes are turning from the standard furnace-and-air conditioner HVAC systems to using heat pumps. A heat pump is a comfort system that combines both heating and cooling functions in a single unit. You only have to make a single adjustment on the thermostat to change the heat pump from a powerful air conditioning system into an energy-efficient heating system.

If you’re considering a heat pump installation for your home, we’re the people to call: we’ll help you find out if a heat pump is ideal for your needs and then see that you have the best model installed.

How a Heat Pump System Works

A heat pump isn’t difficult to explain. As long as you know the basics of an air conditioner, you’re halfway to understanding a heat pump. That’s because a heat pump is basically an air conditioner that can reverse the direction it works.

The conventional air conditioner uses chemical refrigerant to absorb heat from inside a home through an evaporator coil, and then exhaust the heat outside through a condenser coil. A heat pump allows the refrigerant in the system to flow in the opposite direction, which causes the two coils to swap functions. The outdoor coil absorbs heat and the indoor coil releases it into the house.

Benefits of a Heat Pump Installation

Why should you consider changing from the familiar air conditioner and furnace HVAC system to one that uses a heat pump? Here are a few reasons:

  • Heating and cooling: The main advantage is one we’ve already gone over, which is that a heat pump has you covered for both your winter warmth and your summer chill.
  • Heating efficiency: Heat pumps in heating mode are among the most energy–efficient types of heating systems available. This is because they don’t have to burn fuel to create heat. Instead, they use electricity to move heat, which requires less power. Switching from an electric furnace to a heat pump can mean a huge drop in your energy expenditures over the summer.
  • Safety: Heat pumps are a good home heating alternative for people who have concerns about using natural gas. Not only do heat pumps create no toxic exhaust, their cabinets don’t even get warm when they’re in heating mode.
