What Is a Heat Pump, Anyway?
Modern air conditioners use a simple cooling cycle to remove heat from
buildings. The refrigerant chemicals absorb heat at the indoor coil, becoming
gaseous in the process. Then the system pumps the refrigerant over to
the outdoor coil, where it is compressed back into liquid form. In the
process, the heat is released outside the home; the refrigerant then returns
to the indoor coil to repeat the process. Because no refrigerant is actually
consumed in the process, air conditioners run quite efficiently, even
in very hot weather.
A heat pump is essentially a reversible air conditioner. During the cooling
season, the system collects heat inside the house and expels it outside,
just like a standard air conditioner. During the heating season, the cycle
runs backward, absorbing heat outside and bringing it into the home.
The Many Benefits of Heat Pumps
Because they essentially combine two systems in one package, heat pumps
are a great way to save space in smaller homes. They run very efficiently,
especially in areas with fairly mild winter temperatures. Unlike furnaces
and boilers, heat pumps don’t need to burn fuel to heat your home;
they just use the power of the cooling cycle to bring in heat from the
outside air. Many of our friends and neighbors have had great success
heating and cooling their homes with heat pumps.
