How Do Heat Pumps Work?

Even if your home depends on a heat pump to provide your family with heat, there’s a good chance you’ve never even thought about how these systems work.

A heat pump is a device that transfers heat from one source to another. These modern HVAC systems can be used in both winter and summer, providing both heat and cool air. A heat pump consists of two components, an indoor air handler, and an outdoor unit.

The outdoor unit has a compressor that circulates refrigerant and transfers heat between the outdoor and indoor components. Essentially, heat pumps work by moving air in and out of your home. During the colder months, it moves hot air that’s found under and around your home indoors for comfort. During the summer, the process is reversed, providing you with cool and consistent air.
