Heat Pumps are All That and a Bag of Chips

Monday, September 2nd, 2019 at 11:00 am

thumbs-upWe hope that our silly title didn’t make you hungry (though a bag of chips is sounding pretty good right about now!) Sadly, we aren’t a restaurant or even a vending machine for that matter, but what we can do is fuel your appetite for better efficiency.

Yes, that’s right! We are talking about heat pumps! These nifty little HVAC systems are efficient, effective, and quite popular for their ability to provide year-round comfort with just the flip of a switch (but, more on that later!) There are just so many reasons to consider installing a heat pump in your home, and below, we’ve listed a number of them for you! Keep reading to find out more! 

What Is a Heat Pump?

Glad you asked! A heat pump works much like a traditional air conditioner, relying on the flow of refrigerant to transfer heat from one place to another. But what makes the difference between a standard AC and a heat pump is the reversing valve, which is used to reverse the direction the refrigerant flows through the system.

Why? 

Well, you see, reversing the flow of refrigerant through the system allows for home heating in addition to cooling. That’s right: with just one system, you can both heat and cool your home!

Are There Any Benefits?

Yes, there are plenty of benefits to installing a heat pump in your home. These benefits include:

  • Better Efficiency: Heat pumps are one of the most energy-efficient HVAC systems on the market today. This is because they do not generate their own heat, but rather move it from one place to another. Switching to a heat pump is a great way to conserve energy and cut back on monthly spending.
  • Versatility: With just the flip of a switch, you’ll be able to enjoy year-round comfort! The reversing valve allows you to switch between “heating mode” and “cooling mode”, so no matter the temperature outside, you’ll be nice and comfortable inside!
  • Cost and Convenience: When you invest in a heat pump, you will no longer have to worry about the cost of maintaining two different HVAC systems, as a heat pump eliminates the need to own both an air conditioner and a heater.
