What is a Heat Pump?
In terms of construction, a heat pump is very much like an air conditioner. There are two units, one installed inside and one installed outside. These two units are connected by power and refrigerant lines. When in heating mode, a coil in the unit outside evaporates refrigerant to absorb thermal energy from the air. It then sends the refrigerant gas down the line to the inside unit, where it is condensed back into liquid. This releases the heat into the home. All heat pumps contain a reversing valve, which allows them to reverse the flow of refrigerant through their systems. This enables heat pumps to act as both heating and cooling systems. In cooling mode, the same process happens but in reverse.
Advantages of Heat Pump Installation
Unlike the standard dedicated heater/air conditioner layout that most people use, heat pumps have a massive advantage in terms of energy efficiency. A heat pump is all you need for climate control, which means you don’t need to spend money or space on another system. Heat pumps also don’t need to burn fuel to generate heat, which means that they’re much more efficient than traditional heating systems. With a heat pump installed in your home, you can drastically cut down on the operating costs of your system without sacrificing output.
We Install, Repair, Maintain, and Replace Heat Pumps in Rome, GA
Installing a heat pump should only be left to a professional, which is really the case for pretty much all systems. Though a heat pump doesn’t have to deal with natural gas or other combustible materials, it still requires access to the power grid, which can be quite dangerous to deal with if you don’t have professional training.
You should also make sure to schedule professional maintenance and repair services for your heat pump, in order to keep it in the best possible condition for as long as possible. Heat pump maintenance should be scheduled at least twice a year, as the system is used all year round. Repairs should be called for as soon as possible, as they will continue to do more damage the longer they are left alone. We also install and service a wide variety of PTAC and through–the–wall units. No matter what your heat pump needs are, we can help you out.
