How Do Heat Pumps Work?
Heat pumps are common not only here in Champagne but across the country. One of their main benefits is their ability to function as both heaters and air conditioners. Regardless of the job they’re doing, they’re continually pumping heat from one place to another as their name indicates.
During the summer, heat pumps pump hot air out of your home. At the same time, they draw heat and humidity out of warm air using evaporator coils. That colder, drier air then gets pumped into your house. In the winter, heat pumps draw warmth from outside using heating coils and transfer that into your home, serving as a heating system.
Types of Heat Pumps
Several types of heat pumps are currently on the market, and we provide heating services for all of them. In general, they fall into three main categories: air source, water source, and ground source. That means they can draw heat and cold from either the air around them, water, or geothermal energy. Hybrid models are also available that draw from two of the previously mentioned energy sources. They also come in ducted and ductless systems.
Do I Need to Replace My Heat Pump?
Heat pumps usually last around 10 to 15 years depending on how much they’re used, how well they’re taken care of, and other factors. In most cases, a malfunctioning system doesn’t need to be replaced unless it’s reaching the end of its lifespan. There are some exceptions to this rule, but they’re few and far between.
Heat pump repairs are usually all it takes to keep these systems up and running. Feel free to contact us and let us perform a heat pump inspection. We can let you know what the most effective and affordable course of action would be.
