A New Heat Pump is a Wise Investment

It’s Also Good for the Environment

Buying or replacing an air transfer heat pump can offer substantial long-term energy cost savings and help reduce your carbon footprint. Heat pump systems provide versatile heating, cooling, and humidity control—they move heat outside your home in the summer and pull heat into your home in the winter. For us in the moderate San Jose area climate, where the temperature doesn’t regularly drop below freezing, a heat pump can be the answer to your home comfort needs.

To generate heat, furnaces burn oil or gas, while heat pumps run on electricity, drawing heat from outside air—even cold air—and transferring it indoors. Because of how they work, heat pumps produce less heat than furnaces and work best in warmer climates like ours. Heat pumps are more versatile in creating indoor comfort—they provide heat in winter and can also act as air conditioners in summer. This means people in warmer climates can heat and cool their home using just a heat pump system.

What is a Heat Pump?

A heat pump is also a cost-effective alternative to resistance heat that is used in electric furnaces and in baseboard and wall units. When you have a standard gas or electric furnace, heat is produced and distributed through your home from that centralized unit. Heat pumps are different. They absorb heat from the outside and transfer it into your home as part of a continual process. These units are unique in that they can also be reversed in the summer to remove heat from your home, supporting or even replacing your AC.

How does a Heat Pump work?

The heat pump has two major components: the condenser (also called the compressor) that circulates refrigerant through the system and an air handler that distributes the conditioned air. Most heat pumps are split systems with the condenser located outside and the air handler inside. Heat pumps usually distribute the hot or cold air through the duct system. An electric air-source heat pump can be a good alternative to a furnace system that runs on propane or fuel oil.
