How Do Heat Pump Systems Work?

Heat Your Home Efficiently with a Heat Pump System in the Coachella Valley

Your heat pump system uses very similar technology to what your refrigerator uses. It extracts heat from a source such as the indoor or outdoor air. It then transfers the heat to where it is needed. This process makes heat pump systems highly efficient, more efficient than conventional gas heaters that must generate their heat.

The energy your heat pump uses is typically close to ¼ of its energy output in the form of heat, which makes it much more efficient than most traditional systems. If you need a new heat pump installation, maintenance, or repairs to an existing system, don’t wait until winter. The Coachella Valley heat pump professionals at Earl’s Air Conditioning can help ensure your home is warm and comfortable all winter.

What Are the Components of a Heat Pump System?

Your heat pump system contains two groups of components; indoor and outdoor. It works by transferring air rather than generating it, utilizing electricity instead of gas. The indoor and outdoor units contain a coil and fan that work together as air and refrigerant handlers.

  • The heat pump is a compressor that moves refrigerant through the system via pressurization.
  • Refrigerant is a substance that absorbs heat or rejects the heat and moves through the system.
  • The refrigerant heat exchanger extracts the heat for transfer.
  • A reversing valve transfers air between indoors and outdoors.
  • The evaporator valve regulates the flow of refrigerant.

The Physics of Heat Pump Systems

Pressure is the physics component of a heat pump system. When heating your home, outside air is absorbed by the cool liquid refrigerant, turning it into a cold gas, and pressure is applied to turn it into a hot gas. The hot gas moves to the indoor unit and is cooled through passing air, heating the indoor air, which condenses the gas to warm liquid. The warm liquid is relieved of pressure and moves to the outdoor unit, where the cycle renews.

Heat Pump Systems Work Great in the Coachella Valley

Heat pumps work best in climates where temperatures do not drop below freezing, just like the temperatures in the Coachella Valley. They are a great option for efficient heating and cooling in moderate climates, where they can work with the outdoor temps to create comfort in your home.
