How does a Heat Pump work?
A heat pump utilizes a compressor to circulate and absorb heat. Even during the coldest of Utah winters, there is still heat energy present outside. The heat pump transfers that heat energy inside, effectively warming the air. Just as a heat pump can be used in the place of a furnace, it can also work in reverse. When it’s hot outside, the heat pump removes warm, humid air from your home and transfers it outside. In this way, a heat pump acts like an air conditioner.
Traditional heat pump systems have two main parts, an indoor unit and an outdoor unit; one cannot work without the other. Whenever an outdoor unit is replaced, the indoor unit should also be replaced.
The Outdoor Unit
The outdoor unit consists of either a heat pump or an air conditioner. While air conditioners are only capable of cooling homes, a heat pump is a central air conditioner capable of both heating and cooling a home.
The benefits of using a heat pump system include the following:
• Heat pumps are safer and cleaner to run than gas powered furnaces.
• Heat pumps cost less to run and are more efficient than electric furnaces.
• The temperature provided by a heat pump is consistent throughout the entire home or office building.
• Heat pumps are used all year round.
The Indoor Unit
The indoor unit consists of an air handler. Depending on the season, air handlers circulate either cool or warm air throughout the house.
The benefits of air handlers include the following:
• An efficient air handler will require less work from the outdoor unit.
• Air handlers provide comfortable living throughout the entire structure.
• Efficient air control for central air conditioning units is provided through air handlers.
