How Does Heat Transfer Work?
If you use an air conditioner in your home, which we’re guessing you do, then you already reap the benefits of heat transfer. After all, your air conditioner is not really “generating” coolness. Instead, it is removing heat from the air in your home via the evaporation of refrigerant in the evaporator coil. That refrigerant then travels to the outdoor unit, where it is condensed and its heat is released outside. The cycle continues until your home is cooled to the desired temperature.
A heat pump works this same way in the cooling season. In the winter, however, the heat pump is able to reverse its operation. How? By reversing the refrigerant cycle itself, along with the function of its coils, with the help of a component called the reversing valve.
Now, in heating mode, the heat pump will draw heat out of the air outside. Then it will condense the refrigerant indoors, and use that heat in order to warm your home. Only a small amount of electricity is used in this process, and no fuel is consumed. That makes the heat pump incredibly efficient when running in heating mode.
