Heat Pumps Provide Air Conditioning and Heating

Your heat pump has similar components to any air conditioner: compressor, condenser, evaporator, and indoor air handler. It integrates with an extensive system of ductwork that extracts air from your home and cools or heats it, depending upon what you need. The compressor is the engine of any air conditioner, heat pumps included. During cooling, it takes the low-pressure gas refrigerant from the indoor evaporator and heats it up and pressurizes it to such a degree that it’s actually hotter than the outdoor air—even a Green Valley, AZ summer can’t compete. The condensed refrigerant moves indoors to the evaporator coil where a thermal exchange occurs between the cool liquid refrigerant and the warm indoor air that was extracted by your indoor air handler.

During the heating season, your heat pump takes advantage of a reversing valve to warm the cool indoor air and send heat through your ductwork. This makes the heat pump one of the most versatile and necessary tools for providing better home comfort. And to top that off, heat pumps are widely renowned for their exceptional energy efficiency. They use very little electricity to operate when compared with other types of systems.

If you’re in need of a new heat pump or any other type of air conditioning service near Green Valley, AZ, you can rely on Goettl Good Guys of Tucson.

Roger came out on Thanksgiving Day to fix our unit. Turns out, our home builder completely shorted us on the amount of blown-in attic insulation (which you think a home inspector would have caught) and also our unit is too small for our house which is 4 years old. Roger took the time to explain all of this to us in detail and got our unit up and running. Thank you Roger!
