AC Options: Consider the Heat Pump

When things heat up around here, the temperature can really soar. That is why you need to know that you have a reliable air conditioner capable of keeping your home cool and comfortable. We can ensure that this is the case by handling your AC installation in Kingsburg, CA. Before we can install your new cooling system, though, you first must decide what type of system you’ll use! It can be a bit daunting, as there are so many options to choose from. One that you are wise to consider carefully is the heat pump.

Why Choose a Heat Pump?

A heat pump, at first glance, really resembles a traditional central air conditioner. There is an indoor unit that is used to evaporate refrigerant, which allows heat to be drawn out of the air in the house. That refrigerant then travels outdoors in order to release its heat into the air outside. The process is run over and over until the house is as cool as you desire. But it is the heat pump’s unique ability to reverse this refrigerant cycle that really sets it apart from the pack.

With the refrigerant in the system running in the opposite direction, and the function of the coils reversed, the heat pump is able to very efficiently heat the house. Because no new heat is generated, the system is far more affordable to operate than a regular heating system. Once the refrigerant has absorbed heat from the air outside, it is compressed to boost its thermal energy. It is then condensed in the house, and that heat is used to keep you comfortable during the cooler time of the year.

If you are looking for great efficiency and versatility, a heat pump may be exactly what you’re after.
