When described, heat pumps sound like something out of science fiction. They work by using a refrigerant to absorb the ambient heat in the air outside and transfer that concentrated heat into whatever space is needed. To a certain limit, even when it’s cold outside, heat pumps are able to extract the minute amounts of heat that can’t be felt and use it to heat a building.
During the warmer months, heat pumps provide a cooling function by reversing the above process, extracting the warm air from inside of your home and delivering it outdoors. This dual function greatly adds to the versatility of heat pumps as a comprehensive HVAC solution
Unfortunately, because of the nature of how heat pumps work, they’re not ideal for climates that regularly drop below freezing. Because they use ambient warmth in the air, they have to work harder the colder it gets. Some units have an additional component that pre-heats incoming air, but at that point, a traditional furnace would fill your needs more adequately.
Fortunately, we enjoy a rather temperate climate here in California, which makes heat pumps a solid choice for many situations.
Heat pumps have a number of benefits over traditional sources of heat, like furnace or boiler systems. High-efficiency heat pumps are versatile heating systems that take up less space than most other units and could save you thousands over a lifetime in energy bills.
A few of the most obvious benefits of using a heat pump include:
While heat pumps may not be the best solution for all situations, when the circumstances are right, they can provide home and business owners many advantages over alternative solutions.
