Heat pumps not only offer both heating and cooling, the heating that they offer is incredibly energy efficient. The secret lies in the system’s use of the heat transfer process, which in turn relies not only on the refrigerant cycle, but the ability to reverse this cycle depending on operating mode. In summer, a heat pump evaporates refrigerant in the indoor coil, just like a central AC. That allows it to absorb heat, which it releases outdoors as it is condensed in the condenser coil. In winter, the heat pump evaporates refrigerant in the outdoor coil, absorbing heat before compressing it to boost its thermal energy. Then, it is condensed indoors and its heat is used to warm the house.
If the process above causes you to think, "Wait, how can the heat pump absorb heat from outside during the winter?", you’ve discovered one of the possible drawbacks of a heat pump. In some deep cold conditions, a heat pump loses energy efficiency in heating mode. You might consider the installation of a dual fuel system. This is a heat pump combined with a small furnace that runs from either natural gas or propane. The furnace only comes on if the heat pump is in danger of losing its efficiency.
Every HVAC system needs to be tuned–up on an annual basis. Be sure to schedule your heat pump maintenance with our team twice a year—for both the heating and the cooling seasons. But even diligent heat pump maintenance is not going to make your heat pump 100% reliable. If your system is stuck in one mode, won’t defrost, or just isn’t giving you the level of performance that you’d expect, contact us right away for prompt heat pump repairs.
