Energy Efficient Heat Pumps
Here at Lillie Family Heating & Plumbing Company, a family owned business four generations, we provide an all-inclusive selection of essential services for the home or business building. One of the most important of these services is the installation of a heat pump, an appliance that provides four-season comfort all year long. It’s a blend of two worlds of comfort rolled up into one. You get cooler air when it’s hot outside and heated air when it’s cold.
Why Are Heat Pumps So Important?
Designed to provide heat in the winter
months and cool air in the hot summer months, your pump is an essential piece of equipment, creating a comfortable living environment for your family. During the summer, it will take the hot air inside of it and transfers it to the outside of your home. In the winter, it takes warm air that has escaped into the outside air and transfers it back into your home. Since they offer energy efficiency and the flexibility of a single piece of equipment rather than two individual units, many homeowners are turning to heat pump installation for their heating and cooling needs.
How Heat Pumps Work Alongside Your A/C & Furnace
Heat pumps are a great way to supplement both your air conditioner and your furnace throughout the year. For homeowners and business owners living and working in the Vancouver, Abbotsford or Kelowna areas, a heat pump can be the perfect year round solution for providing energy efficient climate control. In the hot summer months, a heat pump can transfer warm air from the inside of your home to the outside. Similarly in the cold
winter months, the same heat pump can perform the opposite function by collecting warm air from the outside and transferring it into your home to keep you warm. A heat pump is essentially a single unit that doubles as a heating and cooling device. This dual functioning ability lets a heat pump act as a major supplement to both your A/C unit and your furnace.
A heat pump works as an air conditioner and alongside furnace in the following way: When it comes to
heating alongside a furnace the heat pump first engages a compressor located outside which collects warm air and moves it inside. Once the warm air has been collected and transferred into your home or commercial property, it is distributed to the mini split systems around the property where it can flow to each room, reducing the need to engage your furnace as often. In the summer, this process is reversed with the help of a reversing valve found in the heat pump mechanism. When the valve is switched, hot air is collected from inside your home or commercial property and transferred out of the compressor located outside. There is a coil that will be installed inside your furnace, this will allow for cold air to be forced through the same ducts that your heat comes from..
What Is Involved?
A heat pump has several components that are standard from one manufacturer to the next. They include:
