A heat pump is a versatile piece of technology that can both heat and cool your Columbia, Maryland, home. You can use a heat pump to replace or supplement your air conditioner as well as your furnace. How does this one installation handle so many conditions? Explore just how your heat pump manages the diverse comfort needs in your home.

How Heat Pumps Warm Your Home

Heat pumps improve your home’s comfort by transferring heat from one area to another. In winter, the heat pump absorbs heat from the outdoor air and brings it inside to warm your home. Even when outdoor temperatures are cold, there’s always some heat in the air. As the refrigerant in your heat pump’s coils passes through the expansion valve, its temperature drops dramatically, becoming colder than the air outside. The refrigerant then gathers heat from the outside air and brings it inside.

How Heat Pumps Cool the Home

Your heat pump reverses cycle in summer, gathering heat from the inside air and transporting it outside. In summer, it generates a cooling effect by dumping heat outside and returning cooled refrigerant to the home. The heat pump’s fans then blow air over the refrigerant-filled coils to cool your home.

Caring for Your Heat Pump

Your heat pump requires regular maintenance to stay in prime condition throughout the year. Because it can both heat and cool, you can schedule your annual maintenance visit during any part of the year. If you haven’t had your heat pump serviced in the last 12 months, schedule a winter tune-up now to keep it in top shape for its year-round job of keeping you comfortable. A system that’s well-maintained will operate more efficiently, require fewer repairs, and enjoy a longer lifespan.
