Is a Heat Pump Right for Me?

Heat Pumps Replace Exisiting HVAC Systems

If you don’t already own a heat pump, and you’re considering the purchase of one for your residence, keep in mind that heat pump installation typically involves the replacement of both your furnace and air conditioning unit. As such, depending on whether your home heating system utilizes electricity or natural gas as its heat source, having a heat pump installed might be the right option. Generally speaking, purchasing a heat pump might be ideal if:

  • Your existing home cooling equipment is needing replacement.
  • You are needing to replace your gas or electric furnace.
  • Your HVAC system is getting older and/or inefficient and your energy bills are on the rise.

Sizing is Crucial

If heat pump installation is something you’re considering, it is essential to hire a certified, reputable professional like Pickerington Heating & Cooling to perform the job the right way, as HVAC systems are major investments and the installation needs to be performed in a precise way. If not sized correctly or if installed even the slightest way wrong, it could jeopardize the performance and efficiency of the entire overall system. If too many corners are cut, you could end up needing a true professional to fix what was done.

What is a Heat Pump?

Heat pumps are centralized forced-air systems that operate effectively as both an A/C and a heat source. As such, they have major benefits for homeowners looking for an alternative type of climate control that’s energy efficient and affordable.

How They Work

A heat pump in heating mode operates just like in cooling mode, except that the flow of refrigerant is reversed by the aptly named reversing valve. The flow reversal means that the heating source becomes the outside air (even when outdoor temperatures are low) and the heat energy is released inside the home. The outside coil now has the function of an evaporator, and the indoor coil now has the role of the condenser.

The physics of the process are the same. Heat energy is absorbed in the outdoor unit by cool liquid refrigerant, turning it into cold gas. Pressure is then applied to the cold gas, turning it to hot gas. The hot gas is cooled in the indoor unit by passing air, heating the air and condensing the gas to warm liquid. The warm liquid is relieved of pressure as it enters the outdoor unit, turning it to cool liquid and renewing the cycle. (Source)

Heat pumps are reliable ways to cool and heat your home or office, but they do not last forever. The expected lifespan of a heat pump is between 10 and 12 years. If yours is getting close to that point, you will want to start planning for replacement before your system breaks completely, leaving you in a hot and stuffy home.
