What Is a Heat Pump?
A heat pump is a forced–air HVAC system which is able to reverse its refrigerant cycle. During the summer season, a heat pump acts just like a central AC. It removes heat from the air in one’s home, vents that heat outdoors, and then redistributes cooled air throughout the house. During the winter, though, the heat pump’s reversing valve allows for its refrigerant cycle, and the system’s overall operation, to be reversed. Now, heat is drawn out of the air outside. The warmed refrigerant is further compressed, and that thermal energy is put to use in order to heat air for distribution throughout the house. Very little energy is used in this heat transfer process, making the heat pump a very efficient heater.
We Install and Replace Heat Pumps in Des Moines
Just because heat pumps are capable of both heating and cooling homes, and of doing so with great efficiency, doesn’t mean that your system will inherently do so successfully. If your system is not of the right size for your home, or if it is improperly installed in any way, then there is just no way in which you can hope for that system to function as successfully as possible. An improperly sized system or a shoddy installation can adversely affect the overall performance of that system. That is why we recommend that you schedule your heat pump installation or replacement with us. That way, every component of that system, from the outdoor unit to the air ducts and the thermostat, will be installed with the greatest of care.
