Heat Pumps

Upgrade Your Home’s Heating With An Efficient Heat Pump

A heat pump, surprisingly, is a mechanical-compression cycle refrigeration system. This system can reverse into heating or cooling air for any room of your home. A typical system comes with an indoor unit and a corresponding outdoor unit. Using a compressor, the heat pump circulates refrigerant to absorb and release heat.

Basically, a heat pump is a heat transporter. It moves heated air from one area to another – whether that is into your home or out of your home.

Understanding the Basic Types of Heat Pumps

Heat pumps come in a variety of brands and models, but the two basic types are ductless and air source.

Here are the critical differences between air source and ductless units:

  • Air Source Heat Pumps: An air source heat pump combines with an air handler to deliver heated or cooled air into your home based on your thermostat setting. They come in variable, multi and single-unit models. An ASHP model absorbs heat from outside and releases it inside as heated air. It can reverse the process in the summer by pulling out the heated and releasing cooled air.
  • Ductless Heat Pumps: Ductless heat pumps offer flexibility over traditional heating and cooling systems. They do not require an intricate ducting network in your home and instead, use in-room units. They come in mini-split and multi-split units, which allows you to customize the temperature of each room. You can use ductless in an add-on or for your entire home.
  • Hybrid (Dual Fuel) System: Because certain energy sources, like electricity and natural gas, operate most efficiently during specific weather conditions, a dual fuel system may maximize efficiency, and cut heating bills. The flexibility of using a heat pump and a gas furnace may provide the Portland homeowner with energy cost savings.

Why Do Homeowners Choose Heat Pumps over Traditional HVAC?

Heat pumps carry significant advantages over traditional HVAC systems. How many of these advantages apply to you depends on your home’s current setup and your heating and cooling needs. Some benefits of using a heat pump include:

  • Lower Operational Costs: Compared to traditional HVAC, heat pumps are cheaper to run throughout the year and reduce your heating and cooling costs.
  • Less Maintenance Requirements: Combustion heating systems require more routine maintenance and repairs. Therefore, you should have your system checked at least once a year to maintain efficiency.
  • Fewer Risks: Combustion-based systems run the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning. Heat pumps eliminate that risk because they do not generate noxious gases or require a flue to remove toxic fumes.
  • Heating and Cooling in One: A furnace heats your home, an air conditioner cools it, but a heat pump does both. Therefore, you do not have to install two systems.
  • Longer Lifespan: The average heat pump, when maintained properly, can last a home more than 15 years.
