How an Air Source Heat Pump Works

An air source heat pump is a system that can heat or cool your home or building by transferring heat from the outdoors to the inside, or vice versa. Rather than burning fuel, air source heat pumps move heat.

  1. Heat from the air is absorbed at low temperature into a fluid.
  2. The fluid passes through a compressor, increasing the temperature.
  3. The higher temperature heat is transferred to the heating and hot water circuits of the house.

Because an air source heat pump works by moving heat, the result is a more comfortable temperature inside your home, whether it’s winter, spring, summer, or fall. Unlike a furnace, which heats the air in your home and can interfere with your home’s humidity, a heat pump functions as both a furnace and an air conditioner.

Air Source Heat Pump Benefits

Air source heat pumps offer a wide range of benefits over traditional HVAC furnace systems. These are just a few of the main benefits when you install an air source heat pump:

Multiple Staging Options

Some heat pumps are available with variable staging. This refers to their ability to operate at the best efficiency level to help create a more comfortable environment by avoiding dramatic temperature changes. Two-stage and variable-stage systems offer greater comfort levels with the best efficiency ratings as opposed to single-stage systems.

Enhanced Air Flow

Innovations in heat pump technology allow increased heat transfer and air flow. This helps to reduce the chance of leaks or corrosion while offering more reliable performance in the long run.

Quieter Sound Levels

With compressor sound insulators, you’ll enjoy reduced operating sound. Unlike the noise of traditional HVAC systems, sound insulators create a more tolerable sound level that helps maintain quieter noise levels around your heat pump.

Reduced Heating and Cooling Costs

With a more efficient system, you’re more likely to enjoy lower monthly energy costs. Quality construction and heat pump technology means you’ll also spend less on maintenance than with most traditional HVAC furnace systems.

More Comfortable Humidity

A traditional HVAC system does little to help with uncomfortable humidity levels during the summer months. During the winter, furnaces can dry out the air in your home, causing static and health issues. Air source heat pumps better regulate humidity than central HVAC systems, making your home more comfortable every season of the year.

Powerful Warranties

Our heat pumps come backed with powerful limited warranties for added protection. Warranties protect both the internal functioning parts of your heat pump and the outdoor coil.
