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.
- Heat from the air is absorbed at low temperature into a fluid.
- The fluid passes through a compressor, increasing the temperature.
- 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.
