Carrier Heat Pump

When it comes to keeping your home warm or cool, there are a lot of options. Aire One has been helping customers for years to find solutions that work. Depending on where you live and the size of your property, there are different options for heating your home like furnaces, central air systems and boilers. Heat pumps are a great choice to keep your internal environment at just the right temperature efficiently and seamlessly.

What Is A Heat Pump?

A heat pump is a heating and cooling unit made up of four main parts which are a compressor, evaporator, condenser and expansion valve. While they look similar to an air conditioner and have some similarities, they can be used for both warming and cooling down the house. Heat pumps should be maintained regularly by a qualified HVAC technician.

How Does A Heat Pump Work?

Heat pumps draw in warm air from the outside to distribute throughout the home. Refrigerant is pumped by a compressor and transferred between heat exchanger coils. The heat is released through the cycle of evaporation and condensation between the two coils. The cycle is reversed during the heat of summer to dehumidify and draw warm air out of the home to be released outside.

Benefits Of Installing A Heat Pump

If you’re looking for an energy-efficient HVAC system, then a heat pump could be your answer. Since heat pumps work by constantly circulating warm air, there’s no fuel that is being used up. This means you’ll see a big drop in your heating and cooling bills. Heat pumps provide a reliable source of heat for a consistently comfortable environment. In very cold climates, heat pumps can be used with furnaces for an auxiliary source of heat.
