What Is a Heat Pump?

Heat pumps are machines that move warm air from one location to another using only a small amount of energy. As a result, heat pumps are an exceptionally energy-efficient alternative to standard forced-air furnaces and air conditioners. Since they don’t use fossil fuels, they are considered environmentally friendly. Their most attractive feature to most homeowners is their dual heating and cooling function. In the winter, air pumps move warm air into your home, and in the summer, they push warm air out.

While older style heat pumps couldn’t function efficiently in colder weather areas where temperatures were regularly below freezing, recent technological advances have largely negated this issue. Heat pumps also operate with a fraction of the noise of a forced-air system as an additional homeowner benefit.

Types of Heat Pumps

There are several kinds of heat pumps. They are named for the source of their energy. The most common style for residential applications is ground-source and air-source.

 

  • Geothermal heat pumps (ground-source or water-source) – These heat pumps transfer air from your home to the ground or external water source.
  • Air-source heat pumps – These transfer air between the interior and exterior of your home.
  • Ductless or mini-split heat pumps – These units are air-source heat pumps that connect to homes without ducts.
  • Solar-assisted heat pumps – This heat pump style connects to thermal solar panels for a single integrated system.
  • Gas-fired (absorption) heat pumps – These heat pumps use heat as their energy source.
