How a Heat Pump doubles as an AC
When you hear the term heat pump, you probably think of an HVAC unit used to heat your home. That’s correct, but did you know that a heat pump can also cool your home during warmer months? Heat pumps are an energy-efficient way to keep your home warm … and cool. While they run on electricity, they can significantly reduce your energy costs throughout the year. The experts at Atlas Butler can discuss the pros and cons of installing a heat pump with you and determine if one would be a good solution for your heating and cooling needs.
The premise of a heat pump is simple. There are two units; one is outside your house and the other is inside, usually in the basement. The heat pump has an evaporator and condenser coils that connect the two units. During the winter, cold air from outside is drawn through the heat pump, which warms the air and moves it throughout your home, just like a furnace. The process is reversed when it’s hot outside. Hot air passes through the coils and is cooled, which in turn, cools down your house.
