How Heat Pumps Work

HVAC-technician-at-doorThe weather is starting to get a little warmer. We know that once things really start to heat up, they can go from warm to sweltering within an afternoon. So you need to make sure that you have an air conditioner in your home that can handle the heat.

If you are looking for a system replacement, or if you are looking to invest in a whole-house cooling solution for the first time, we’d say it is a good idea to consider a heat pump as your next option. Scheduling a heat pump installation in Fresno, CA today can offer you a multitude of benefits down the line. Read on to learn more about these systems and contact California Indoor Comfort Inc whenever you are ready to schedule your installation!

How Heat Pumps Operate

Heat pumps are also known as heat pump mini splits. Much like central air conditioners, these drive stems use a split set-up to operate, with one indoor unit and one outdoor unit. But this is precisely where the differences start.

Heat pumps don’t use a large indoor unit but rather are set up to have an air handler as their indoor unit, allowing them to take up space without offering any less comfort.

Much like their centralized cousins, heat pumps also operate through heat transfer. During the summer your heat pump circulates refrigerant to pull heat out of your home and move it outside, creating cool air in the process.

The Benefits Heat Pumps Offer

As you can imagine, heat pumps are going to offer some great benefits to the homes they are installed in and the homeowners who use them. When installed by a professional technician, these benefits will include:

  • Great energy efficiency: Your heat pump is going to get the job of cooling your home done in a highly efficient way. It is going to be efficient during wintertime too as it transfers heat into the home rather than burning fuel to heat things up.
  • Year-round comfort: You’ll notice that we mentioned your heat pump can warm things up too. Heat pumps can pull heat into your home by reversing their refrigerant flow. This may not be a huge concern right now but, come fall, it will be great news. With one system, you get double the functionality with incredible efficiency.
  • Ducted and ductless: Have a home without ductwork? You can ask a technician about a ductless heat pump system. Ducted heat pumps attach to and work with your existing ductwork to provide comfort. Ductless heat pumps use multiple air handlers added throughout the home to get the job done.

You deserve to have a comfort system in your home that serves your needs effectively and efficiently. Don’t compromise! Talk to one of our technicians today to see if a heat pump would be a good fit for your home and your comfort needs. Then, work with us for your installation and any other services the system needs!
