Heat pumps are a type of HVAC system that can both heat and cool your home. These systems work by transferring heat from one location to another, rather than generating or absorbing it like other traditional heating and cooling methods. Heat pumps are a great option for those looking for an efficient and cost-effective way to control the temperature in their homes.
At Air Today Heating & Cooling, we understand how important it is to find the right HVAC system for your needs – one that is reliable, efficient, and cost-effective. That’s why we believe it’s important to educate our customers on how heat pumps work so they can make an informed decision when it comes time to purchase.
A heat pump is made up of three key components: an outdoor unit, an indoor air handler (or evaporator coil) and connecting refrigerant lines that run between the two units. This refrigerant line carries a unique mixture of hydrogen, carbon dioxide and other chemicals between the outdoor and indoor units that absorb heat from the outdoor environment during cooling cycles and then release the same heat into the house during heating cycles.
The outdoor unit works similarly to a refrigerator in reverse – it collects warm air from outside your house and transports it inside where the indoor unit releases it as hot air through ducts or vents depending on what type of system you have. During cooling cycles, this process reverses itself with hot air being collected from inside your home for removal outdoors using much less energy than a traditional air conditioner would use. This makes the process highly efficient, resulting in lower energy bills for you!
Heat pumps come in several different types including split-unit systems, ductless mini-split systems, two-stage models, variable speed configurations, reverse cycle models and more. Each type has its own benefits ranging from increased energy efficiency to improved humidity levels in your home environment – making them ideal for any number of climate control needs you may have.
