What is a Heat Pump and How Does it Work?

The Heat Pump: How it Works and What it Can Do for You

Heat Pump

A heat pump is essentially an air conditioner and furnace combined into one unit. It basically works by transporting heat either into, or out of your home as needed.

In a heat pump, the coolant is circulated via a compressor. Depending on which way the compressor is running, the heat pump can extract heat from your home for a cooling effect in the summer, or from outside and distribute it into your home in the winter. Thus, a heat pump can both cool or heat your home as needed.

The Benefits of a Heat Pump

Heat pumps offers several benefits:

  • They can be up to 58% more efficient than a traditional furnace, saving you money!
  • Heat pumps are usually quieter than other methods of heating and cooling
  • They are generally safer and cleaner, as there are no hot surfaces and there is no burning fuel
  • The filtration systems do an excellent job of filtering mold, dander, dust, etc.
  • They offer excellent in-home air quality
