How Does an Air Source Heat Pump Work?

If you are thinking about how to cool down your home, the first thing that comes to mind is not likely to be an air source heat pump. You are more likely to think of an air conditioner or a fan. Investing in a heat pump can be a wise choice, since it can heat and cool your home, as opposed to having separate systems for heating and cooling.

What is a Heat Pump?

A heat pump is a piece of equipment that is capable of moving heat from one location to another using a small amount of energy. They can pull heat out of the air or the ground to heat your home or office, but they can also be reversed to cool down the interior environment as well.

Advantages of Using a Heat Pump

Along with the advantage of not having to install two HVAC (ventilating and air conditioning) systems in your home, one advantage of choosing a heat pump is that it works very efficiently. Rather than burning fuel to create heat, they simply transfer it, which makes them a more environmentally friendly choice for homeowners.

They are a good choice for homeowners living in moderate climates. You can save money by choosing this option instead of a furnace and air conditioner for your home.

How an Air Source Heat Pump Works

A heat pump works on the principle that heat moves from a location where there is a high temperature to one where there is a lower temperature. The heat pump uses a small amount of energy to switch the process into reverse and pull heat out of a low-temperature area to pump it into a higher temperature one. The heat is transferred from a heat source, such as the ground or the air, into a heat sink, like your home.

Air Source Heat Pump

An air source heat pump is one of the most common types of heat pumps available on the market. It takes heat from the air outside your home or office and pumps it back indie through refrigerant-filled coils. The idea is not that different from what you will find on the back of your refrigerator. It has two fans, refrigerator coils, a reversing valve and a compressor.

To cool your home, the heat pump reverses the flow of refrigerant so that the system operates in the opposite direction from when it is heating. When the refrigerant is reversed, it absorbs heat on the indoor side of the unit and flows back to the outside. The heat is released, allowing the refrigerant to cool down and flow back inside to pick up more heat. The process repeats until the interior of your home is cool.

What are the Benefits of a High Efficiency HVAC System?

With a significant portion of your energy bill going to paying for the heating, ventilation and air conditioning system in your home, it makes good sense to find ways to make it more efficient if possible. Saving money is just one reason why it you would want to make the decision to invest in a high efficiency HVAC system.

Benefits of a High Efficiency HVAC System


1. Lower Energy Costs

Once you install a high efficiency HVAC system in your home, you can realistically look forward to saving a minimum of hundreds of dollars each year. Paying less for energy costs will free up money in your budget for other purposes.

2. Lower Carbon Footprint

Higher levels of carbon in the atmosphere cause issues for all of the earth’s systems, including air quality, water levels and vegetation. By finding ways to use less energy, you are conserving fossil fuels and putting less carbon into the air.

3. Better Temperature Management

Most homeowners who have older HVAC equipment find that they have spots in their homes where there are warm or cold spots. Once you install a high efficiency HVAC system and it is running at peak efficiency level, the air will be moving at an even flow throughout your home. The rooms should be heated or cooled at an even temperature.

4. Increased Air Quality

Cleaner air means that there will be fewer allergens and dust mites in your home. Regular maintenance of the high efficiency HVAC system and having the filters cleaned regularly as well as having any cracks and holes in your duct system sealed will lower your family’s exposure. If you or anyone in your family suffers from asthma or an allergy to dust or any other airborne allergy, better air quality in the home can improve their overall health.

Are you Ready for Changes in the Heating and Air Conditioning Industry in 2015?

We live in a time of enormous technological change. When you think back to all the changes that have taken place over the past half-century, there have been some truly mind-boggling accomplishments. We live in a world where most of us have access to desktop computers, cell phones, and microwave ovens. We’re connected through the Internet and can communicate with people from all over the globe in an instant. Space travel is no longer the stuff of science fiction and we’ve made impressive advances in the fields of medicine and science.

Along with our many advances, we’ve also caused damage to our environment far more quickly than previous generations. Carbon dioxide levels are at the highest point since the late 1950s. It’s time to take steps to repair the damage.

Changes in the Heating and Air Conditioning Industry

Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Reduces Freon Production

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is reducing the amount of R22 refrigerant, commonly known as Freon. It is used in the cooling cycle of air conditioning. Scientists found that this chemical was having a negative effect on the ozone layer, and the EPA developed a plan to eliminate it over a number of years.

In 2015, production of R22 will be reduced to 90% below the US baseline. By 2020, the Agency will stop allowing all production and importing of R22. As production goes down, prices will increase dramatically.

Puron a Substitute for Freon

Puron R410a, can be used as a substitute for Freon, but it is on the list of substances that contribute to global warming. It operates at a higher pressure than Freon, which means that homeowners will need to buy new air conditioning equipment to use it.

Since Freon won’t be readily available and any supply will be very expensive, it makes sense to replace your air conditioning system that use R22. If your system needs repairs to its condenser coil or evaporator coil, you would be better off buying a new unit. At this point, continuing to invest in the air conditioning system doesn’t make sense.
