A heat pump is meant to move heat around in a space in order to heat or cool a room. They work by moving heat by mechanical means. Heat is pulled in during winter for heating purposes and removed during summer for cooling purposes. Because a heat pump can act as both your heater and air conditioner, it often saves money on energy and repair bills.
Types of Heat Pumps
- Air-Source Heat Pumps: These are great for warm climates and are extremely energy efficient. This is because it moves heat instead of creating it from a fuel.
- Ground Source Heat Pumps: This is a central heating and/or air conditioning system that pumps heat from the ground. This is efficient because the ground stays at a relatively steady temperature throughout the year.
- Absorption Heat Pumps: These work just like air-source heat pumps, but instead of electricity, they use gas, propane, or heated water.
A refrigerant is a necessary component in a heat pump. Refrigerants are also used in air conditioners and freezers. They work by changing from gas to liquid then back to a gas during a heating cycle. This gives off or absorbs heat. American Comfort Heating and Air Conditioning provides environmentally-friendly refrigerants for our HVAC systems.
