Heat Pumps

How Heat Pumps Work

In some ways, heat pumps do exactly what their name implies – they pump heat from one area to another.

Heat pumps are actually able to extract heat from the air outside your home and then transfer it inside to keep the indoors nice and warm all winter long.

But that’s not all your heat pump can do. In addition to keeping your house warm all winter, heat pumps can actually cool your house in the summer by reversing that very same process. Rather than pumping in heat, heat pumps are able to remove the heat from your indoor air and transfer it outside, thereby keeping your home cool during the summer months.

Heat Pump Energy Efficiency

When compared to other types of home heating and cooling systems, heat pumps are considered to be remarkably energy efficient. One of the main reasons for this is that they don’t   actually have to create heat like a furnace would. Your furnace will take in fuel and convert that to heat, which is then circulated throughout your house. The heat pump, simply takes heat that is already there and concentrates it in one place – your home.

Another benefit of heat pumps is that they are exceptionally reliable and durable. They require minimal maintenance and can continue to run all year long without any interruption or disturbance. These systems, unlike other forced air heating systems, generate a constant flow of warm air. That means that your indoor temperature stays constant rather than fluctuating when a blast of hot air comes in as is the case with furnaces.
