Should I Cool My Home with a Heat Pump?

 

Considering the fact that we are already dealing with triple digit temperatures, and have been for a few weeks, you probably are not just now thinking about an air conditioning installation. If your air conditioner has given out on your, though, or if you have a planned replacement coming up, we encourage you to explore your options and to consider the many different air conditioning systems available for installation in your home. Yes, traditional split central air conditioners are still the most popular systems around. Others are growing more and more popular, though, and using a heat pump in Tucson, AZ can actually benefit you in a few unique ways.

What Is the Heat Pump Difference?

During our very long, very hot cooling season, you are going to be running your air conditioner pretty much around the clock. When summer is in session, the heat pump will operate much like a split central air conditioner. Refrigerant evaporates in the evaporator coil, and heat in the air surrounding that coil is removed. This refrigerant then completes its cycle, making its way out to the condenser coil and being dispersed into the air surrounding it. It is the heat pump’s ability to reverse this operation, though, which truly sets it apart.

You read that right. A heat pump can actually reverse its entire operation. The system essentially sends refrigerant in the opposite direction, reversing the function of its coils, as well. When you need to heat your home, the heat pump will actually use the refrigerant cycle in order to draw heat out of the air outside. This refrigerant is then compressed, and its thermal energy used to heat air for distribution throughout your home. Because we require so little in the way of heating, this convenient and efficient heating performance is ideal for our climate.
