How Does a Heat Pump Work?

In order to grasp the benefits of using a heat pump, you first need to understand how it works. A heat pump closely resembles a central air conditioning system. The major difference comes in the form of the reversing valve, which allows for the refrigerant cycle to be reversed. By reversing the flow of refrigerant and the function of the system’s coils, the heat pump is able to use heat in the air outside in order to warm interior spaces.

In the summer, refrigerant evaporates in the indoor evaporator coil, collecting heat from the air passing over it and then releasing it outside as it is condensed in the condenser coil. When the system’s function is reversed in the winter, heat is drawn out of the air outside as the refrigerant evaporates in the outdoor coil. It is then compressed to boost thermal energy, and is condensed indoors. This allows it to release heat with which to warm your home.

Benefits of Using a Heat Pump System in Riverside, CA

The obvious benefit of using a heat pump is that it can double as both a heater and an air conditioner. That means that you only need to invest in one HVAC system in order to keep your home comfortable throughout the entire year. However, the major benefit of a heat pump lies in its efficiency. If you are looking for affordable heating that is also eco–friendly, then a heat pump is definitely something to seriously consider.

Unlike furnaces and boilers, which combust fuels such as propane, oil, and natural gas, or those furnaces that use electric heating elements to heat the air, heat pumps are not really generating new heat. They are using the heat that is already in the air outside, with only a small amount of refrigerant required to compress and move that refrigerant. This method of heat transfer is an effective way in which to cut back on energy consumption.
