Types of Heat Pumps
Heat pumps offer a variety of options for your home’s heating and air conditioning. These options include:
- Air-source heat pumps – Heat is extracted from air drawn across its heat exchanger. Source temperature will be dependent on prevailing ambient temperature and varies through the year depending on geographic area. The process is reversed with a reversing valve to provide air conditioning.
- Gas heat pumps – Sometimes referred to as absorption pumps, they work similar to the air source heat pump, except rather than use electricity to fuel their operation they use natural gas.
Geothermal heat pumps – Can be ground sourced or water sourced. Uses pipes either buried in the ground or submerged in a water source. It is a closed loop system. Geothermal heat pumps take advantage of the consistent temperature underground or under water. We offer heat pump services for geothermal heat pumps.
- Mini-split heat pumps – Also known as the mini ductless heat pump. Utilizes one outdoor unit and up to 8 indoor units connected by refrigerant lines to each section. Enables you to utilize zoned HVAC, to heat or cool some rooms and not others, and to set different temperatures for each room, or zone. It eliminates the need for ducts, and their energy losses.
With so many systems available there is sure to be one just right for your home.
