Don't let the name fool you. A heat pump is an excellent alternative for both heating and cooling your home. Just think of a heat pump as a heat transporter, extracting warm air from your home during the summer, and reversing operation to bring warm air in during the winter. Though it may be difficult to believe there is enough warmth in outdoor air during the winter to heat your home, Daikin systems can actually deliver heat in conditions as low as -13 degrees Fahrenheit to keep you warm and toasty inside.
How the Heat Pump works
A heat pump is installed outside the home, similar to a central air conditioning unit. The units compressor circulates refrigerant between it and the indoor air handler, absorbing or releasing heat en route, depending on the season. It does not burn fuel to produce heat; rather, it just uses electricity to move heat into or out of your home.
Why use a Heat Pump?
As a result, heat pumps boast less fuel consumption during transient seasons (spring or fall) when compared to gas furnaces. Its matched air handler resides inside the home, contains a coil and blower fan, and serves to circulate conditioned air throughout your home.
