The Heat Pump: How It Works

A heat pump system is set up in a similar manner to a traditional central air unit. There is an outside condenser portion along with an indoor air handler, and refrigerant cycles around both portions of the system again and again. The indoor air handler also contains a blower, which moves air over the evaporator coil as refrigerant flowing through it absorbs heat. The heat dissipates when the refrigerant condenses outdoors, and this is how your home cools down in the summer.

This process uses the same components as a conventional air conditioner uses in the summer. The only difference is that a heat pump has additional valves that allow refrigerant to flow in the opposite direction. When it does, it absorbs heat from the air outside of your home and moves it indoors.

This is an efficient way to heat a home because so much less energy is used to move heat around than is used to generate heat as a conventional heater does. However, the heat pump may fail to perform so efficiently if temperatures approach freezing. But your technician should install backup heating elements that take over when your heat pump cannot perform properly.
