Heat Pump for HVAC

Heat pump is a mechanical-compression cycle refrigeration system that can be reversed to either heat or cool a controlled space. Think of a heat pump as a heat transporter constantly moving warm air from one place to another, to where its needed or not needed, depending on the season.
A heat pump uses some amount of external power to accomplish the work of transferring energy from the heat source to the heat sink.
Heat spontaneously flows from warmer places to colder spaces. A heat pump can absorb heat from a cold space and release it to a warmer one.
"Heat" is not conserved in this process, which requires some amount of external high grade (low-entropy) energy, such as electricity. One advantage of a heat pump is that it moves heat instead of generating heat, giving you more energy efficiency.

In HVAC applications, the term "heat pump" is more general and applies to many HVAC devices used for space heating or space cooling. Typically, it's a vapor-compression refrigeration device that includes a reversing valve and optimized heat exchangers so that the direction of heat flow (thermal energy movement) may be reversed.
The reversing valve switches the direction of refrigerant through the cycle and therefore the heat pump may deliver either heating or cooling to a building. In cooler climates, the default setting of the reversing valve is heating. The default setting in warmer climates is cooling


Heat Pump

Installation for this type of system typically consists of two parts: an indoor unit called an air handler and an outdoor unit similar to a central air conditioner, but referred to as a heat pump. A compressor circulates refrigerant that absorbs and releases heat as it travels between the indoor and outdoor units.
If you get a heat pump, you do not have to install separate systems for heating and cooling. Heat pumps are also easy on the environment because unlike a furnace, the heat pump simply transfers heat from one place to another.

We can install, service, and maintain all models of heat pumps.
