You might be wondering (but are afraid to ask), “What is a heat pump and why does it matter?” This question is more common than you’d think, but is rarely asked by homeowners during service calls.
A heat pump can be a key component to a forced-air HVAC system. It is essential to keeping your home cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
A heat pump is a mechanical-compression cycle refrigeration system that can be reversed to either heat or cool. A heat pump consists of two primary parts: an indoor air handler and an outdoor unit similar to a central air conditioning unit, but called a heat pump. A compressor moves refrigerant that takes in and releases heat as it travels between inside and outside units.
