How to Heat Pumps Work?

Heat pumps function through the same principles as air conditioning, circulating refrigerant through a series of valves and coils that first bleed heat from it (releasing the heat outside the home), then use it to pull heat from the surrounding air (inside the unit itself). The cool air can then be blown into your ducts with a fan.

Heat pumps simply add an additional wrinkle to that equation: they can reverse the flow of refrigerant, enabling the air outside your home to be cooled and heat released inside where it can be blown through the ducts. At Ultimate Heating & Air, Inc, we have the expertise you need to select the right heat pump for your home, and to provide expert heat pump repair and heat pump maintenance service throughout the Boise area.

What Are the Benefits?

Heat pumps provide some small measure of convenience by combining heaters and air conditioners into a single unit. But their biggest benefit comes in the monthly savings during the winter. Because heat pumps draw upon the refrigerant itself for heating power (instead of consuming gas or a similar nonrenewable fuel source), the unit costs less to run in the winter months, as well as reducing wear and tear on the system.

Here in Boise, winters are cold enough that many heat pumps employ a dual–fuel system, which combines the heat pump itself with a smaller furnace. The dual fuel systems still enough improved savings over conventional furnaces to put money back in your pocket every winter. And our team is standing by to help with quality heat pump installation and heat pump repair services!
