What Is a Heat Pump?

A heat pump works much like a traditional air conditioner, relying on the flow of refrigerant to transfer heat from one place to another. But what makes the difference between a standard AC and a heat pump is the reversing valve, which is used to reverse the direction the refrigerant flows through the system.

Why?

Because reversing the flow of refrigerant through the system allows for home heating in addition to cooling. That’s right: with just one system, you can both heat and cool your home!

What Are the Benefits?

There are plenty of benefits to installing a heat pump in your home. These benefits include:

  • Better Efficiency: Heat pumps are one of the most energy efficient HVAC systems on the market today. This is because they do not generate their own heat, but rather move it from one place to another. Switching to a heat pump is a great way to conserve energy and cut back on monthly spending.
  • Versatility: With just the flip of a switch, you’ll be able to enjoy year-round comfort! The reversing valve allows you to switch between "heating mode" and "cooling mode," so no matter the temperature outside, you’ll be nice and comfortable inside!
  • Cost and Convenience: When you invest in a heat pump, you will no longer have to worry about the cost of maintaining two different HVAC systems, as a heat pump eliminates the need to own both an air conditioner and a heater.
