How Do Heat Pumps Work?

September 30, 2022 | Blog

With cool weather just around the corner, it’s time to take a look at your heater. Your home should be comfortable all year long, and we have a perfect heating and cooling solution for just that! Heat pumps are fantastic systems that both cool and warm your home, and its dual-purpose design has tons of benefits.

This season, find out if a heat pump would be right for you with Air Tech of Pasadena! We love to help homeowners find heating options to fit their home, so we’ve put together this article all about heat pumps. There’s much more to this system than you might think.

What Is A Heat Pump?

These systems are pretty amazing. Instead of only heating or cooling the air, they do both! They work through exchanging heat energy and using it to release either cool or warm air into your home.

Heat pumps work without combustion, and they’re similar to an air conditioner. In the summer, they work just like AC too! The system pulls warm air from your home, and then it pulls the heat from the air and uses refrigerant to cool it. Then it circulates the cold air into your house and releases the warmed air outside.

In the winter, the system just reverses its summer cycle. It pulls heat energy from the air in your home and uses a heat coil to warm it. Then the warm air is pushed back into your home, and you’re nice and cozy!

The Benefits Of Heat Pumps

Being a 2-in-1 system has many perks like reduced maintenance and the fact that it performs both heating and cooling, of course! They can work in any climate, but they’re perfect for places with mild winters, like Texas.

Another great part about this heating system is its energy efficiency. Heat pumps are one of the most energy efficient systems available for heating and cooling, and it shows! Depending upon the type of heat pump you purchase, you can use around 50% less energy than you would with a furnace or boiler! Who doesn’t love saving money on their electric bill?

Plus, heat pump installation is easy in any home! There are a few different system styles available, and one is a ductless mini-split. This means that you don’t need to add or alter your ductwork to have a heat pump! You also don’t have to give up your heater or air conditioner if you don’t want to because pumps are so versatile that they can work with any system you have.

Is A Heat Pump Right For Me?

If you’re looking to replace your heater this season, a heat pump could be a worthwhile investment! While they may have a higher up-front cost, they have reduced energy consumption which saves money on your electric bill. Plus, this system can be installed in any home no matter what kind of ductwork you have.

Heat pumps are an excellent option for any Pasadena homeowner, but they do require professional installation. Luckily, Air Tech of Pasadena can help with that!
