A heat pump system is just like it sounds. In fact, in essence, your heat pump system transfers heat through your home. And this occurs more frequently in the winter, especially in the Mid-Atlantic region like Maryland. During the cold months, a heat pump system will pull all the heat available in outside air into the system and send it inside so it can be distributed throughout the entire home. As a result, everyone is left feeling comfortable and able to enjoy their humble abode. But, what other important aspects of a heat pump system do people not really think about? There are many! Here are some of the more forgotten about aspects of a heat pump system and how they work to keep your home warm!
The refrigerant is quite often the key component to a heat pump system. In fact, moving heat would be virtually impossible without it. As a result, during the colder months, the outdoor portion of a heat pump system will use a fan to pull in air over a set of refrigerant-filled coils. It’s basically these coils that allow the refrigerant to turn from a liquid into a gas and thereby move air throughout the home.
Within this process, a compressor is always involved. In fact, once the refrigerant expands, this component compresses the gas and then makes it even hotter than it was originally. As a result, the hot gas is pumped into the home itself. As a result, once this happens, the refrigerant releases all the heat, which is then blown into the ducts by an air handler or fan.
Once the refrigerant releases all the heat, it then moves back through the tubing all the way until it reaches the outside. At that point, it is then turned into its original liquid form.
