Heat pump diagram

The Heat Pump is very simple once you understand the basic concept (and I promise you will after reading this). As the name suggests a heat-pump transfers or pumps heat from one place to another, (notice the use of the word “pump”- heat is not generated but rather is moved). As they say “a picture worth a thousand words”. So let’s see one: In this Example: The flame heats up…

(NAPS)—When a new heating system is in your home’s future, you’d be wise to consider the pros and cons of heat pumps and furnaces. Both distribute air through a home using heated air rather than heated water. A heat pump does this by extracting heat from outside air and circulating it through your home. A furnace uses electricity or gas to produce heat. The following tips can…

Heating pump 3 settings

Heating pump 3 settings

Recently I ve learned of two people running their heat pump in a way that costs them a lot of extra money. With heat pumps, there s an extra setting on the thermostat. In addition to heat, cool, and off, there s a setting for emergency heat. But what is that setting for? What does it do? A heat pump, as I wrote before, pulls heat from the outside air (unless you have a ground…

Thermal pump heating

Thermal pump heating

The ground absorbs nearly half of the solar energy our planet receives. As a result, the earth remains at a constant, moderate temperature just below its surface all year round. However, air temperature varies greatly from summer to winter, making air source (traditional) heating and cooling least efficient when you need it the most. Geothermal heating and cooling systems take…

Heat pump systems

Heat pumps can provide cost-effective and energy-efficient heating, cooling and water heating for homes and businesses. While traditional systems burn fuel to create heat, a heat pump instead works by moving heat into or out of a building. Though they require electricity to operate, efficient heat pumps can provide the same amount of heating for a third of the electricity needed…

Are heat Pumps efficient

Are heat Pumps efficient

An air-source heat pump can provide efficient heating and cooling for your home, especially if you live in a warm climate. When properly installed, an air-source heat pump can deliver one-and-a-half to three times more heat energy to a home than the electrical energy it consumes. This is possible because a heat pump moves heat rather than converting it from a fuel like combustion…

How do you know if should upgrade your air-conditioner to a heat-pump and create a dual-source application during replacement this Summer? I personally always prefer the option of multiple fuel sources, particularly since energy prices have been all over the place during the last decade. Fortunately, based on average energy prices, there is some simple math to figure out if…

Heat pumps move heat from one place to another. Some can pump heat both out of and into a building, for cooling or heating. Air conditioners (or chillers for large-scale systems) are a kind of heat pump that can only pump heat out of a building, but can do it slightly more efficiently than bi-directional heat pumps. Small-scale heat pumps. Heat pumps are important for efficient…

Heat pump systems for homes

We had to make so many decisions when we built our new construction home. I didn’t realize it at the time (having never built a home before), but perhaps our most important decision-making centered around the HVAC system. The trend in new construction these days is toward energy efficiency, and we were completely on board with that. And living where we do on the Delmarva peninsula…

Whats a heat pump

A heat pump is an electrical device that extracts heat from one place and transfers it to another. The heat pump is not a new technology; it has been used in Canada and around the world for decades. Refrigerators and air conditioners are both common examples of this technology. Heat pumps transfer heat by circulating a substance called a refrigerant through a cycle of evaporation…

Could you give me an explanation of how heat pumps work? — Anthony, Pearl River, NY A: Riichard Trethewey replies: A heat pump is an air conditioner in reverse. With an air conditioner, heat is extracted from the building as it is absorbed into refrigerant inside the fan unit in your basement or closet. The refrigerant then carries the heat to an outdoor unit where it is transferred…
