What Are Heat Pumps and How Do They Work?


Are you looking for an energy-efficient alternative for your furnace? If so, then a heat pump might be the ideal option for your home. Heat pumps are typically most effective in moderate climates, and utilize electricity to move heat from a cool space to a warm space, making the cool spaces cooler and the warm spaces warmer. Since they move heat and don’t generate it, heat pumps can require only a fraction of the cost of conventional heating.

Let’s take at heat pump systems, and how they can benefit you:

Air-To-Air Heat Pumps

An air-source heat pump is among the most common types, and it works by transferring heat between your home and the air outside of it. This can provide you with year-round comfort, as a heat pump increases heat in the colder months and decreases humidity in the warm months, resulting in less overall energy usage. Additionally, the recent advancement of air-source heat pump technology has made it a viable option for heating homes in frigid regions.

Geothermal Heat Pumps

For even more extreme climates, geothermal heat pumps can provide comfort and customer satisfaction. A ground-source heat pump transfers heat between your house and the ground and a water-source heat pump moves heat between your home and a water source.

Although they can cost more to install, the expense to operate a geothermal heat pump is generally low because they take advantage of constant ground or water temperatures. They offer a host of other benefits, like dramatically reducing energy use, controlling humidity, and are sturdy and reliable. The size of your lot, the condition of your subsoil, and the landscape will all determine whether a geothermal heat pump is appropriate for your home.
