How Heat Pumps Work

Heat pumps offer an energy-efficient alternative to furnaces and air conditioners, and operate differently from traditional heating and cooling systems. Unlike the name, these types of pumps do not generate heat. Instead, they take heat from the outdoors (even in cold weather) and transfer it into your home when temperatures in Windsor-Essex County get colder. During warmer weather, hot air is removed from your home and send outside where it belongs.

How heat pumps work

Heat pumps are versatile and efficient cooling and heating systems. Using a reversing valve, the pump changes the flow of refrigerant to either heat or cool a home. Air is forced over an evaporator coil, transferring heat energy from the air to the refrigerant. That heat energy is circulated to a condenser coil, where it is released as a fan blows air across the coil. Through this process, heat is pumped from one place to another.

Because they transfer heat in or out of the home instead of creating heat or creating cool air, heat pumps are more energy efficient than conventional HVAC systems, reducing your utility bills. The system consists of two units – an indoor air handler and an outdoor condensing unit (which resembles a central air conditioner).

Heat Pump Benefits

Air Quality – In addition to its energy efficiency, this type of heating system can have a positive impact on your air quality. Since they simply transfer heat instead of creating it with fossil fuels, heat pumps don’t contribute to poor indoor air quality.

Energy Efficient – This systems transfer heat instead of generating it, using less energy to maintain a comfortable temperature year-round.

Environmentally Friendly – They rely on electricity, reducing carbon emissions and improving your environmental footprint.

Cost Savings – Compared to conventional heating and cooling options, they operate with greater efficiency and flexibility, saving you money. 

Space Saving – Because the indoor unit of a heat pump (the air handler) is more compact than a conventional furnace, they can be a better choice for smaller homes, apartments, and tiny houses, where space is limited.
