It is typical in Phoenix, Arizona to use a heat pump to cool and heat your home. But what is a heat pump and how does it work? Learn the answer to your questions about heat pumps and why they are beneficial for your home in our helpful guide!
What is a Heat Pump?
A heat pump is made up of two different parts: an indoor unit, and an outdoor unit. The two parts are connected by a refrigerant line. A heat pump is a unique system in that it can both heat and cool the air in your home.
How does a Heat Pump Work?
To heat your home, the heat pump takes heat from the air outside, compresses and heats it by passing the air over refrigerant coolant, and then distributes the hot air around your home. To cool your home, the heat pump essentially works in reverse, taking the hot air from inside, transporting it outside, and then replacing it with cooled air.
What are the benefits of a Heat Pump?
Heat pumps are very energy efficient since they only use electricity to power the system, instead of needing to generate hot and cold air like a traditional HVAC system. Since heat pumps are so energy efficient, they drastically reduce your monthly energy bill, helping you save money.
