What’s a Heat Pump?
Heat pumps keep your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Heat pumps are especially great here in the Northwest because of the mild weather we enjoy. In winter, heat pumps draw heat energy from outdoor air using refrigerant to keep your home warm. In the summer, the cycle is reversed to expel heat from inside of your home and thus cool the air. Unlike a conventional furnace or air conditioner, a heat pump offers a high level of energy efficiency, therefore keeping utility costs low.
Size It Up
Just like air conditioners, heat pumps work in conjunction with your furnace. Heat pump systems are composed of three main components: an outdoor unit also known as a condensing unit, an indoor evaporator coil, and an air handler.
When combined with a gas or propane furnace, the system is known as a dual-fuel system. When upgraded to a high efficiency gas/propane furnace, it is called a hybrid system. Over time, hybrid heat pump systems help maximize your savings simply by re-configuring the thermostat to implement the use of the most affordable utility rate, gas or electric.
