How Do Heat Pumps Work?
Heat pumps work in a manner similar to air conditioners: circulating refrigerant through an endless series of valves and coils. The refrigerant is first liquefied and placed under a great deal of pressure—bleeding heat, which is released outside the home—then shifted to gaseous form, which pulls heat from the surrounding air inside the home. The cooled air can then be pumped into your home with a fan.
The main difference between a heat pump and a regular air conditioner is that the flow of refrigerant can be reversed, releasing hot air inside your home and cool air outside. That means it can serve as both a heater and an air conditioner, deftly handling anything our Kansas City, MO weather can throw at us, as well as being more energy-efficient than a gas furnace and is one of the best ways to get electric heat versus natural gas in Kansas City homes. Bring your home comfort to the next level and have access to a system with high energy efficiency and lower energy bills or air source heat pumps year-round.
