Keep Warm Efficiently with a Heat Pump

 

You are going to need to use a heater to keep your home warm and comfortable when temperatures drop, even in Arizona. Nighttime temperatures are subject to chilly levels, even when daytime temperatures are mild or warm. In this part of the country, using a heat pump to keep warm makes a lot of sense. If you are looking for a new heater, we strongly recommend that you consider a heat pump in Phoenix, AZ.

Why Generate Heat, When You Can Transfer It?

When homeowners use furnaces or boilers in order to keep their homes warm, they must burn fuel or use electric resistance in order to generate heat. Heat pumps, on the other hand, use existing heat in the air outside in order to warm homes. They are able to do this thanks to their use of the refrigerant cycle.

You are probably familiar with this term, especially if you read our blog. The refrigerant cycle is used by your air conditioner in order to remove heat from the air in your home during the summer, and to release that thermal energy outdoors. A heat pump’s refrigerant cycle operates in much the same manner, but in reverse.

When you use a heat pump to heat your home, existing heat in the air outside is absorbed via the evaporation of refrigerant. That refrigerant is then compressed in the condenser coil, and the heat is used to heat air for distribution throughout the house. Because only a very small amount of electricity is used in order to complete this process, using a heat pump to heat one’s home is very efficient.

An added bonus of using a heat pump is that the system can reverse its operation by reversing its refrigerant cycle. That means that you can use it to cool your home in the summer, just like a central AC. The refrigerant flows in the opposite direction, and the coils flip their functions.

Call Goettl Air Conditioning if you decide that a heat pump is right for you.
