Expert Results For Your Heat Pump Problems

Heat pumps are an energy-efficient way to keep your home cool in the warmer months and warm on colder days. They’re great for moderate climates – those locations that don’t have extremely hot summers or unbearably cold winters. With a high functioning heat pump, you can enjoy the weather all year-round from the comfort of your home.

How Does a Heat Pump Work?

A heat pump works like your refrigerator, pulling heat from a warm space to make it cold and vice versa. During the summer or warmer months, your heat pump takes any heat from your house and blows it outdoors, creating a cold environment. High-efficiency heat pumps also do a better job of dehumidifying an area. They do a better job than most air conditioners, using less energy and electricity.

What do Heat Pumps have to do with my Plumbing?

Although mostly used to provide comfortable temperatures in the home, heat pumps can also generate hot and cold water. This type of heat pump can be used for radiant floor heating systems if being used in the heat mode. They can also be used for residential water heaters and even to heat water for swimming pools.

Heat pumps are excellent and high-efficient appliances to heat your running water however, you could have a major problem if one of the pipes leading from the heat pump to the plumbing in your home is leaking. Not only does this make the heat pump inefficient and can be costly for you in utility bills, but it could lead to burst pipes.
