How Your Heat Pump Cools Your Home

The great thing about your air conditioner is it works as a dehumidifier and a cooling system. As air moves over your evaporator coil, it condenses thanks to the cold refrigerant. So, your home is relieved of heat and humidity with AC.

However, with a heat pump, you can reduce the amount of work your AC has to perform to cool your spaces. Don’t be fooled by its name. A heat pump can offer sweet relief during the summer in addition to its winter benefits.


What Is A Heat Pump?

Similar to an air conditioning system, the main unit of a heat pump is installed outside your home. If you already have a furnace and an air conditioner, you might not need a heat pump, but this equipment works for heating and cooling.

Heat pumps use electricity to transfer heat from outside or inside the home to its destination, depending on your comfort needs. Like AC systems, this technology uses refrigerant to transfer the air. The interior coil cools down air as it passes over, and the air is warmed through exterior coils during the winter.

The heat pump simply transfers heat to and from the outdoors for your ideal indoor environment. The interior blower fan then pushes the cooled air to the rest of your home.


What A Heat Pump Can Do for You

Installing a heat pump can easily reduce the amount of maintenance, repairs, and space your furnace and AC demand. With this technology that requires a single unit connecting indoors to outdoors, you can cut your maintenance costs in half.

On the other hand, heat pumps work well in milder climates since there isn’t as much heat to transfer out of the home. In Eastern Arkansas, your heat pump would probably work just as hard as your AC does now.

Luckily, the winter is where you’d see the most savings by switching to a heat pump. These systems can be up to 40% more efficient than a furnace. Plus, with our mild winters, you'll never have to worry about it getting too cold for operation.
