Heat pumps basically work by transferring thermal energy from one location to another. When using an air-source heat pump, these systems will pull thermal energy from the air outdoors. That thermal energy will be sent inside the home via refrigerant lines and can either go directly to multiple indoor air handlers in ductless systems or a central air handler that will send the heating through your ductwork system. In the summer season, your heat pump can be put in reverse operation to send the thermal energy in your home outdoors, which provides a comfortable cooling effect.
How Heat Pumps Work
Geothermal heat pumps include water-source and ground-source systems. These systems are able to access the stable thermal energy from underground or large bodies of water. Ground-source systems have a system of loops underground which can be installed vertically which saves space but is more costly to have installed. They can also be installed horizontally when you have plenty of land and are looking for a cheaper installation option. These systems are some of the most energy efficient on the market and will give you huge savings when heating or cooling your home. Water-source systems are perfect when you live near lakes or oceans and the loops can tap into those stable temperature sources.
