The Basics - How a Heat Pump Works
- Just like central air conditioning system has an outdoor air conditioning, or "compressor-bearing unit" and an indoor coil, a heat pump also has an indoor and outdoor unit and they work exactly the same on the cooling side.
- In the heating season, a heat pump is an air conditioner in reverse. Air conditioners extract heat from your home and transfer it outside via an enclosed refrigerant loop. For heating, a heat pumps captures heat from the exterior of your home and "pumps" it into your home via this same refrigerant loop. An air delivery fan is contained within the indoor unit that circulates heated or cooled air throughout the home.
- Heat is present in the outside air even at temperatures that seem cold to us. The heat pump can capture this heat and transfer it into your home without having to use fossil fuels such as gas or oil.
- When the outside temperature reaches 40 degrees or so, the heat pump has a supplemental heating element within the indoor unit that can activate to assist it in maintaining the interior temperature at a comfortable level.
- Heat pumps are most effective in more moderate climates where the ambient temperature rarely falls below 15-20 degrees.
- Economical comfort during warm weather – Heat pumps are able to efficiently heat your home using just the compressor and fan with only occasional assistance from a supplemental heating element. The energy consumption of a standard compressor is about 2/3 less than that of a typical heating element.
- You can leave the indoor temperature set at a comfortable point throughout the day and night without the concern of high utility costs associated with an electric heating system.
