Heat Pumps

What Is a Heat Pump?

Heat pumps are HVAC units that either cool or heat, by taking heat from one place and moving it to another. During the winter months, a pump draws heat from the air outdoors and circulates it through the air ducts in your home. In the summer months, it does the opposite process and takes heat from inside your house and releases it outdoors.

A heat pump is an energy efficient way to heat or cool your home, especially in a warm climate, and is most generally a vapor compression refrigeration device. Most, but not all, heat pumps include a reversing valve and heat exchangers that are optimized so that the direction of the flow of heat may be reversed. Heat pumps that have this reversible valve can switch the direction of refrigerant through the cycle so that the heat pump can deliver either warm air or cool air.
