Considering how far into the summer season we are, and how hot this summer has been, we hope that you have an effective and reliable air conditioning system working away on your property. The fact of the matter, though, is that air conditioners can break down and require replacement at very inopportune times. If your air conditioner has given out on you, you’ll want to have a new one put in as soon as possible.
Before you rush into replacing your air conditioner with a very similar model, though, consider the use of a heat pump in Cedartown, GA. Heat pumps have much to offer, particularly in an area with our sort of climate. Read on to learn more about the benefits of using a heat pump, and feel free to contact us with any questions that you may have.
Heat pumps are unique in that they are able to reverse their operation. This means that you can actually cool and heat your home with just one system for year round comfort. How is this possible? Because the heat pump has a component called a reversing valve, and this valve allows for the reversal of the direction in which refrigerant moves throughout the system.
During the summer, the heat pump will act much like a central AC. Refrigerant is evaporated in the evaporator coil, and moves to the condenser coil outdoors in order to disperse heat into the air outside. When you reverse the operation for the winter season, the function of these coils essentially reverses, as well. The refrigerant absorbs heat from the air outside, and then uses that heat in order to warm the air in your home.
Not only is this incredibly convenient, but it is also and incredibly efficient way in which to heat your home. No heat is generated, so no fuel is consumed. A small amount of electricity is all that is required to run the heat pump, so you can enjoy great energy savings. Our mild winter season is also ideal for this method of heating.
