What Are Heat Pumps & How They Work
Heat pumps are household appliances that perform the job of both an air conditioner and a furnace, all while using less energy. As a result of providing efficient home heating and cooling, heat pumps offer long-term cost savings. Heat pumps are more efficient than traditional forced-air systems because heated and cooled air doesn’t get lost in the ductwork. Increased energy efficiency means lower monthly energy bills.
Here’s how heat pumps work:
- During the summer, heat pumps fulfill the role of an air conditioner by capturing heat from the air inside a building and moving it outside to lower the temperature.
- During the winter, heat pumps fulfill the role of a furnace by capturing heat from the air outside a building and moving it inside to increase the temperature.
Two Different Types
When it’s time to select a heat pump for installation in your home, you have two options to choose from. While both heat pump types consist of an indoor and an outdoor component, they differ in their heat production and distribution processes.
Air Source Heat Pumps
Air source heat pumps extract heat from outdoor air and distribute it indoors. This type is relatively inexpensive and is ideal for homes in a moderate climate.
Water Source Heat Pumps
Water source heat pumps extract heat from an outside water source and distribute it indoors. Water-source heat pumps are less popular than air-source heat pumps because they require a nearby water source, like a lake or a well.
Our Installation Process
Since the heat pump installation process can be complicated, you’re better off leaving it up to the professionals. After installing countless heat pumps over the years, our HVAC technicians possess the knowledge and experience needed to perform reliable installations—including installing an indoor air handler and an outdoor unit. Our goal is total customer satisfaction, and we won’t stop until we achieve it.
How Long Does a Heat Pump System Last?
On average, heat pumps last between 10 and 15 years. However, a heat pump’s lifespan depends primarily on how well it is maintained. The more routine maintenance your heat pump receives, the longer it should last. We recommend scheduling annual heat pump maintenance to ensure optimal performance and longevity for years to come.
