The term heat pump doesn’t accurately describe this mechanical device. This multipurpose appliance actually provides hot air in the winter months and can also reverse to provide cool air in the summer.

What Does a Heat Pump Do?A heat pump is a heat transfer system that uses similar technology to a refrigerator or air conditioning system. Instead of generating heat, it shifts heat from the ground, air or water. Two heat exchanger coils circulate refrigerant between them; one coil absorbs heat (evaporator coil) and then circulates the refrigerant to a high-pressure coil (condenser coil) which releases the heat into the surroundings. A great feature of a heat pump is its versatility — in the summer months it is fully reversible and can absorb heat from your home and release cool air. A heat pump also helps regulate humidity, a bonus in the hot and sometimes humid summer months. It can be powered by electricity or gas. In Idaho, electricity is generated by coal, therefore natural gas units are cleaner, and are up to 60% more efficient than electric models. There are a variety of rebates, tax credits and incentives when you choose to install an efficient heat pump.
Benefits of a Heat PumpA heat pump is essentially two systems in one. Here are a few benefits:
Reduce energy use. Instead of using energy to create heat ‘from scratch,’ it utilizes the existing heat in the air, water or ground and transfers it into your home. Heat pump systems create up to 4 times the amount of energy it requires to run.
Instead of having an air conditioning system and a furnace, a heat pump does the job of both. This means you save space and have less maintenance.
Longer lifespan. The simplicity of the system means there are less mechanical components that require repair and with regular maintenance, you can help prolong its lifespan.
How to Maintain Your Heat PumpHere are a few easy tips to improve the longevity of your heat pump:
Regularly change the air filter. In the cooler fall and winter months, the air filter should be changed once a month.
Regularly clean furnace and coils. Our qualified technicians can help vacuum out the furnace, clean the fan, dust the coils and repair the motor.
