A heat pump is an energy-efficient HVAC system and an alternative to a furnace. However, did you know that these units also cool your home? Along with heating your home or business, a heat pump can provide the cooling you need to get through a Las Vegas, Nevada, summer. Learn more about how a heat pump works and the options and features available in today’s designs.
How a Heat Pump Works
Heat energy is present in the air, the ground and water. A heat pump works by moving heat from one area to another. In the winter, it extracts heat from the energy source and releases warm air indoors. In the summer, it reverses this action to remove heat from your property and release it outside. Heat pumps accomplish this process via a reversing valve which allows you to switch the unit between heating and cooling modes.
Types of Heat Pumps
Heat pumps are either geothermal (ground-source or water-source) or air source. We carry air-source heat pumps that offer benefits like:
- Two-stage Cooling
- Efficient Performance
- Energy Savings
- Improved Indoor Air Quality
- High Efficiency Ratings
- Quiet Operation
Geothermal systems transfer heat energy between the ground or a nearby source of water and your property. They’re more costly to install but cheaper to operate, more durable, and suitable for extreme climates. An absorption system uses gas or another heat source to heat and cool your property. Air-source heat pumps are the most common option. They transfer air between the outdoors and your property. Heat pumps are a worthwhile option for indoor comfort since you get year-long comfort from just one unit.
