What Exactly is a Heat Pump?
A heat pump is a reversible, mechanical-compression cycle refrigeration system. It can be used to either heat or cool your home or business. Arvada Express Pros can repair or replace both the indoor unit (called an air handler) and the outdoor unit (similar to a central air conditioner) referred to as a heat pump.
How Does A Heat Pump Work?
It’s called a “heat pump” because it pumps heat into your home or business in winter, and pumps heat out in the summer. Think of a heat pump as a sort of Star Trek transporter. It constantly moves warm air from one place to another. To where its needed or not needed depending on the season.
When it’s cold outside it is still ambient heat energy in the air. A heat pump extracts this heat and transfers it inside. Conversely, when it’s a warm Colorado day a heat pump can reverse directions and act like an air conditioner, removing heat from your home or business.
What's Wrong With Your Heat Pump?
A few things can go wrong with a heat pump. In the outdoor unit portion anyone of the following can fail:
- The compressor
- The outdoor coil
- The reversing valve
In the indoor unit portion anyone of the following can fail:
- The indoor coil
- The supplemental heater
- The fan
- The thermostat
Our HVAC experts will know which component has failed and remedy the situation quickly.
Heat Pumps Save Energy
The transferring of heat uses far less energy than making heat does. A heat pump can transfer a staggering 300% more energy than it consumes. Heat pumps are perfect for our for moderate Arvada climates and can even run in cold climates because if the variable-speed motors they employ. These save energy by running more slowly – but not shutting off – when the house is at a comfortable temperature.
Do Heat Pumps Have Efficiency Ratings?
They have two, one for heating and one for cooling. The heating rating is called the Heating Seasonal Performance Factor (HSPF). The cooling rating is called the Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER). The higher the number, the greater the efficiency.
One advantage of a heat pump is that it moves heat instead of generating heat, giving you more energy efficiency. Call 300-420-0420 today to see if your heat pump needs repairing or replacing.
