HVAC FAQ: How Does a Heat Pump Work?

Monday, October 30th, 2017

man-keeping-warmLiving in California means that your air conditioner sees more time on the playing field than your home heating system does. It does not mean, however, that your heater is not as important as your AC. The fact is that, regardless of usage time, both systems play a vital role in helping to ensure your comfort throughout the year. You don’t want to live uncomfortably in the winter just because it doesn’t get that cold. Even so, you may think that a designated heating system is overkill.

That is where the heat pump comes into play. By operating in both heating and cooling modes, the heat pump offers an elegant solution to the homeowner looking to simplify his or her year-round comfort. Even with temperatures dipping into the 30’s at night, a heat pump is an ideal solution for efficient heating in this part of the country — and can keep you cool all summer, too. Consider this information, and schedule your heat pump services with our Visalia, CA HVAC pros.
