How Does a Heat Pump Work?
A heat pump is like a heat transportation device. It moves warm air from one place to another, to where it’s needed or not needed. Even in cold air there is still heat energy. A heat pump can extract this heat and move it inside. When the air outside is warm, the heat pump can reverse direction and act like an air conditioner, removing heat from your home.
Because heat pumps move heat instead of generating it, they are vastly more energy efficient than traditional heating or cooling systems. The Trane XV20i heat pump is one of the pumps we can install; they are among the HVAC industry’s most efficient.
In Arklahoma a heat pump will need a supplemental heating source during the winter. We are an independent Trane dealer so we can help you decide if a heat pump system is right for you.
Geothermal (Ground Source or Water-source) Heat Pumps
We also install and maintain geothermal heat pumps from ClimateMaster. These pumps contribute to high efficiency rates because they can transfer heat between your house and the ground or a nearby water source. Geothermal heat pumps cost a bit more to install but they have low operating costs due to the fact they take advantage of relatively constant ground or water temperatures. Ground-source or water-source heat pumps can be used in more extreme climates than air-source heat pumps, so in four-season Ft. Smith they can really shine.
Heat Pumps Save Energy
Transferring heat uses much less energy than generating heat. A heat pump can transfer 300% more energy than it consumes. They can also provide additional heat in cold climates because of their variable-speed motors. Ask your technician if your existing heat pump system needs repair or replacement.
Do Heat Pumps Have Efficiency Ratings?
Yes. For heating: The Heating Seasonal Performance Factor (HSPF)
For cooling: The Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER).
The higher the number, the greater the efficiency.
