What is a Heat Pump?
A heat pump is an integral part of a home heating and cooling system that is commonly installed outside of a home. It can cool your home like an air conditioner, but it can also provide the living space some heat. During the cooler months, a heat pump pulls heat from the cold outdoor air and transfers it indoors. In the warmer months, the heat pump pulls heat out of the indoor air in order to cool the home down. These pumps are powered by electricity and transfer heat using refrigerant in order to provide elite comfort for homeowners all year long.
Since they handle both heating and cooling for a home, many homeowners will not need to install separate systems to heat their homes effectively. For more efficient use, many can use an electric heat strip and add it to the indoor fan coil for additional capabilities. And since heat pumps do not burn fossil fuels, it makes them the eco-friendlier option for homeowners.
Common Types of Heat Pumps
The two most common types of heat pumps you will find are air-source pumps and ground-source pumps. An air-source pump transfers heat between indoor and outdoor air. Air-source pumps are the more popular choice for heating and cooling in residential areas.
Then there is the ground-source heat pumps, which also go by the name of geothermal heat pumps. These heat pumps transfer heat between the air inside the home and the ground outside. This sort of pump is more expensive to install than its air-sourced counterpart. However, they often have a more efficient and lower operating cost, since the ground temperature is more consistent than the air throughout the year.
This may sound strange, but heat pumps actually do not generate any heat. This is unlike something like a furnace, which creates heat that is then distributed throughout the home. Instead heating pumps move heat from one place to another. A heating pump absorbs heat energy from the outside air. Even if the temperatures are cold, the heat pump can absorb heat. And once it absorbs the heat, it can transfer it to the indoor air. When a heat pump is in cooling mode, it works very similarly to an air conditioner, which also absorbs heat from the indoor air and releasing it through the outdoor unit.
