In most houses, there are two distinct systems for heating and cooling – one for heating and the other for air conditioning. But with the evolvement of science and technology, HVAC systems have combined both heating and cooling systems in one device. This means that the device will keep one warm in chilly temperatures, and will make the ambience cool and comfortable in the summers. The device must be well maintained, serviced, and repaired as and when needed. At Arnolds Airconditioning.Net, we offer high-quality heat pump service to our customers in Stuart, Palm City, Hobe Sound, Jensen Beach, FL and Surrounding Areas.
Understanding What is A Heat Pump and Its Benefits
A heat pump is a machine which helps in moving heat from one area to another when a heating system is needed. The process reverses when cooling is needed. The device helps draw heat from various external sources like the air or the ground for heating your home or any commercial space. For cooling, the heat pump works in the manner of an air conditioning system. Hot air is removed from the home interiors, and cool air is pulled in. The coils in the heat pump further reduce the temperature in the rooms. Heat pumps are highly energy efficient when compared to traditional systems. These pumps also help in maintaining steady temperatures with great humidity control. Since you get heating and cooling facilities in one machine, it is also budget-friendly.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
A heat pump is nothing but a machine which helps in transferring heat from one area to another, when you are looking to heat a house. The process gets reversed when you are seeking cooling facilities. For cooling, the heat pumps start working as an air conditioning system. For heating, the pump pulls in heat from external sources and heats the room. Steady temperatures are maintained with controlled humidity with the help ofheat pumps.
Yes, when it comes to the calculation of input and output, a heat pump proves to be better than an electric heater. Output from heater is like direct conversion of electrical energy. However, in heat pumps, the electrical input is for pumping heat from lower to higher levels. To the heat output, electrical input is also added. Output for the heat pump is higher than that of an electric heater. Efficiency ofheat pumps can reach up to 350%.
Heat pump systems are highly efficient for climates where moderate cooling and heating is required. It has also been seen that heat pumps are highly energy efficient when compared to air conditioners and furnaces. Electricity use for heating has been reduced by almost 50% with heat pumps. With furnaces and baseboard heaters, electricity usage is more, and hence the utility bill is also high. The efficiency of heat pumps is almost 300% – 350%.
A heat pump acts like an air conditioner. Therefore, when we talk of the cooling capacity of a heat pump, it means the ability of the machine to cool the air. Cooling capacity is measured in tons. One ton is equal to 12,000 BTU. So, if the heat pump is of 3 tons, it means it is 36,000 BTU.
A typical geothermal heat pump system includes a ground loop system that is filled with a water solution, ductwork, and a heat exchanger. This pump works by tapping the renewable solar energy stored in the ground. It has been seen that savings of almost 72% can be done on cooling and heating expenses. The geothermal heat pump exchanges heat with the earth instead of outdoor air. Buildings can be heated and cooled with the help of this geothermal heat pump.
