Heat Pump System
What is a Heat Pump System?
A heat pump works to supply both “warm air” for heating, as well as providing “cool air” for cooling.
Regardless of the name, “heat pumps” do not generate Heat, but rather “move” heat from one place to another.
Unlike a furnace that generates and distributes heat inside a home, a heat pump absorbs heat from the outside air and transfers it to the interior of the home and reverses the process during the warmer months to transfer cool air to the inside the home.
The Heat Pump system consists of the following components: an outdoor unit and an indoor unit (both containing fans and coils), a refrigerant, a compressor, and valves to control the flow of the refrigerant.
