What is a Heat Pump and How Does it Work?

A heat pump is part of an HVAC system. It plays a big role in the winter time, summer time, and the months in between. During the winter, the heat pump helps to warm your home. During the summer, it can be reversed to cool off your home. A heat pump uses the outside air to warm your home, and it can also remove heat from your home. The biggest difference between a heat pump and a furnace is how they work to create the heat in your home. We can help if you need an HVAC professional for any of your HVAC needs. We want to make sure that your home temperature is comfortable.

Heat Pump Installation

A heat pump installation will involve two different parts. There is an indoor unit called an air handler, and there is also an outdoor unit that is the actual heat pump. These parts work together to help your home stay cozy. Our HVAC professionals can install both parts to help your home stay at a comfortable temperature year-round.

An Energy Efficient Choice

A heat pump is always moving warm air around your home. Even if you think the air is cold, there is still heat in it that a heat pump can use. There are many benefits to choosing this type of system. Instead of generating heat, this type of system just moves heat around. This will help with energy-efficiency around your property. This year-round solution to your home is a great investment.

The Differences in Furnaces and Heat Pumps

A heat pump and furnace will create heat in two different ways. With the help of electricity, a heat pump moves heat around. A furnace will burn fuel to make heat that it gives off. These different options can both provide warmth to your home when you need it. Although they both work in different ways, you can count on a heat pump or furnace to provide you with the results you need.
