How Does a Heat Pump Work?
Instead of creating heat, heat pumps simply transfer heat from one space to another depending on the season. During the cooling season, heat pumps transfer heat out of the home, and during the heating season, they transfer heat inside your home.
During the cooling season, heat pumps operate similarly to central air conditioning systems. The heat from the inside of your home is pressurized by refrigerant and transferred outside to lower the indoor temperature of your home.
When heating your home, the process is reversed. The heat pump extracts heat from the air outside. It is pressurized and transferred through refrigerant to the inside of your home to raise the temperature to create a comfortable living environment.
What Are the Benefits of Installing a Heat Pump System?
Heat pumps come with several benefits including:
Improved Energy Efficiency
Air source heat pumps can offer the biggest energy savings during the heating season. This is because heat pumps don’t use fuel such as oil or natural gas to create heat, which can be expensive. They simply transfer air from the outside through refrigerant to the inside of your home, thus saving you a significant amount of money on energy costs. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, heat pumps can reduce your home’s electrical usage by up to 50% compared to electric resistance heating including furnaces and baseboard heaters.
Reduced Energy Bills
Because heat pumps use less electricity and don’t consume natural resources for heating, installing a heat pump can significantly reduce your monthly energy bills. Homeowners who install an Energy Star-certified heat pump can save an average of $600 on heating for the entire winter, according to the US Department of Energy.
Heating and Cooling in a Single System
Heat pumps can completely replace the need for an air conditioning system and can either replace or supplement a natural gas furnace. Heat pumps become less efficient once the outside temperature drops below freezing.
Heat pumps can also reduce your home’s carbon footprint, making them one of the most environmentally friendly HVAC systems on the market.
How Often Do Heat Pumps Need Maintenance?
The best way to keep your new heat pump humming along all year is with regular maintenance service. Unlike air conditioners or furnaces that each require annual tune ups, air source heat pumps need to be serviced twice a year – once in cooling mode and once in heating mode.
