Heat pumps provide year-round indoor comfort, no matter the season by using advanced technology and the refrigeration cycle to heat and cool your home. One thing about heat pumps is that because they provide both heating and cooling, there sometimes appear to be twice as many possible causes when something goes awry.
That’s why when something doesn’t seem to be working in quite the way we expect it to, the best thing to do is to call in an expert to do an assessment and to provide heat pump repair services. The HVAC technicians at Tyler Heating, Air Conditioning, Refrigeration LLC are highly equipped to do just that, i.e., determine which issues might be causing the problem in your system.
Parts of a Heat Pump
To better understand how your air is heated or cooled, let’s take a quick look at what makes up the heat pump system. A typical air-source heat pump system is a split/two-part system that runs on electrical power. The system is made up of an outdoor unit that looks similar to an air conditioner, and an indoor air handler. The air handler helps distribute the warm or cool air to interior spaces.
Heat and Air Conditioning Modes
When properly installed and functioning, a heat pump in air conditioning mode will help maintain cool, comfortable temperatures in the home while reducing humidity levels inside. A heat pump can be switched from air condition mode to heat mode by reversing the refrigeration cycle. In this mode, the outside coil is made to function as the evaporator and the indoor coil, as the condenser. Used for many years mostly in locations that typically experience milder winters, these systems can now be used in areas with extended periods of subfreezing temperatures, thanks to advancements in air-source heat pump technology.
