What are heat pump systems and how do they work?
Contrary to the name, heat pumps don’t just heat your home – they can cool it, too, making a heat pump system an excellent all-in-one heating and cooling source. Running completely on electricity, heat pumps utilize two coils – one to condense and another to evaporate air. During the winter the heat pump’s condenser coil condenses and heats the air, creating a warm atmosphere. When the temperature rises the heat pump uses the evaporator coil to condition and cool air within a home.
Is a heat pump system right for me?
Heat pump systems’ reliance on electricity can eliminate or greatly reduce gas fuel bills. What’s more, they tend to conserve energy very well, so even the electric bills the heat pump generates tend to be very manageable. This also means they are one of the more environmentally-friendly means of heating and cooling a home. Finally, heat pumps tend to be small; they do not take up a great deal of space, making them an excellent choice for smaller homes.
