How A Heat Pump Works

Have you ever wondered about what makes a heat pump a heat pump?  Well, I'm here to tell you it's not as complicated as you may think.  This blog will be a crash course on the heat pump and how it works, and also the key things to remember when it comes time to replace your current system.

  1. A heat pump is a device that uses a small amount of energy to move heat from one location to another
  2. Heat pumps are usually used to pull heat out of the air or ground to heat a home or office building, or they can be switched into reverse to also cool a building
  3. Heat pumps are a unique kind of heating system because they can do the work of both a furnace and an air conditioner
  4. Heat pumps can also work extremely efficiently, because they simply transfer heat rather than burn fuel to create it
  5. Heat pumps work best in moderate climates
  6. If you live in a moderate climate, using a heat pump instead of a furnace and air conditioner can help you save a lot of money on your utility bill
  7. Remember that most heat pumps are somewhat limited in the cold, so it is important that you learn which kind of heat pump is best for your area before installing one in your home or office building

Now, given that our climate(central North Carolina) is considered moderate, when you go to look into replacing your system it might just be worth your while to go with a heat pump  To find out more just give us a call!
