Unlike the rest of the country, here in Florida we have a few more months to go before the cold weather really sets in. There is no need to schedule heating maintenance or anything similar quite yet. However, if you’re in the market for a new air conditioning system, you can hit two birds with one stone before winter starts. Read on to find out more about the benefits of installing a heat pump.
How a Heat Pump Works
A heat pump is basically an air conditioner, but with one or two big differences in operations. Two units work in tandem to rid the home of heat, the inside one evaporating refrigerant to collect thermal energy and the outside one condensing the refrigerant to vent it. Unlike a traditional air conditioner, however, a heat pump contains a part called a reversing valve. This valve allows the system to reverse the direction that refrigerant flows through, which makes the heat pump capable of offering both heating and cooling functions.
The Advantages of a Heat Pump System
If you are looking for a new air conditioning system at the end of summer, a heat pump can provide everything you need to keep your home cool. Once the weather starts to get cold, however, you don’t have to switch to a different system to keep comfortable. The greatest advantage of a heat pump is that it saves you money and space that would otherwise go to another comfort system. Because heat pumps are not combustion-based systems, they’re also more energy efficient than the vast majority of other types of heating systems. You can save quite a bit of money on both heating and cooling throughout the year by installing a heat pump in your home.
