What Are Heat Pumps?
Heat pumps are units that use electricity to transfer heat from the outside air into your home during the cooler months. In addition, contrary to its name, heat pumps can also cool down your home during the warmer months. By employing the same process in reverse, these units draw in the heat from inside your home and transfer it to the outside air.
How Do Heat Pumps Work?
Such systems utilize a refrigerant liquid and manipulate its pressure to produce the desired cooling and heating effects.
How It Cools
The refrigerant liquid acts as a heat magnet at lower pressures, pulling heat from the inside air and evaporating into a gas. At higher pressures, the refrigerant in gas form is energetically higher than the outside air, causing the heat to release. As the heat releases outside, the refrigerant reverts to its original liquid state as it cools, cooling your home.
How It Heats
Alternatively, when cold outside, the air is energetically higher than the refrigerant at lower pressures. Therefore, the refrigerant absorbs any available heat and evaporates into a gas form. As the refrigerant in gas form pressurizes, the temperature rises and is then pumped back into your home to warm the inside air.
Why Are Heat Pumps Gaining Popularity?
These units are far more efficient than conventional air conditioning and heating options. A single pump installation can replace two independent heating and air conditioning units. In addition, they use less electricity. Instead of utilizing a large amount of energy or burning fossil fuels to generate heat, this non-traditional unit makes use of already available heat from the outside air and channels it back inside your home. Therefore, heat pumps help lower your energy usage and electricity bill.
- Lower energy usage
- Lower carbon emissions
- Lower long-term costs
- Safer than conventional gas systems (no risk of a gas leak)
- Better humidity control
