How Does a Heat Pump Work?

Heat pumps move heat around by circulating refrigerant through a cycle of evaporation and condensation. A compressor pumps refrigerant between two heat exchanger coils. In the first coil, the refrigerant is evaporated at a low pressure and absorbs heat from its immediate surroundings. The same refrigerant is then compressed at high pressure and travels to a second coil where it condenses. It then releases the heat it absorbed earlier in the cycle.

A refrigerator is a good example of a heat pump operating only in the cooling mode. A refrigerator is really just an insulated box with a heat pump system connected to it.
The heat pump cycle is fully reversible, and heat pumps can provide heating in winter with cooling and dehumidifying in summer.

What Can go Wrong With a Heat Pump?

There are a few things that can go wrong with a heat pump. Luckily we have the personnel, the trucks and the tools to get yours up and running.
It is important to remember that heat pumps do not heat air to the same temperatures as gas furnaces.

If your heat pump stops working properly we can run a detailed system of diagnostics to isolate the problem. Low levels of refrigerant, restricted refrigerant flow, faulty compressor valves, or debris can all lead to heat pump failure.

Ductless mini-split heat pumps are ideal supplements for homes with hydronic or electric resistance baseboard heating. They are wall-mounted units that can be installed in individual rooms of a house. Ductless mini-split systems are easier to install and the hook-up between the outdoor and indoor units requires only a three-inch hole through a wall for the conduit.
