Heat Pump Repair and Installation
For select climates, heat pumps provide an energy efficient option opposed to the traditional air conditioners and furnaces. Heat pumps use electricity to transfer heat from a cool space to a warm space, similar to a refrigerator. Because heat pumps move heats opposed to generating it, they can provide savings on your energy or electric bills. So if you’re interested learning more about heat pump system in Hattiesburg, MS, call Yoder’s Heat and Air at 601-707-8961.
Types of Heat Pumps
There are three types of heat pumps: air-to-air, absorption, and geothermal. All of which, collect heat from the air or the ground near your home and concentrates it so that it can be used to heat your interior.
Air-to-Air Heat Pumps
This is the most common among the three. Compared to electric resistance heating like furnaces and baseboards, the heat pump of today can decrease your electricity use by half. High-efficiency heat pumps also have the ability to dehydrate the air much better than traditional air conditioners. This helps to use less energy and provide more comfort during those hot, summer months.
Geothermal Heat Pumps
By transferring heat between the ground, or a nearby water source, and your home, this heat pump is considerably more efficient than traditional heat pumps. Although they have a high front end cost, geothermal heat pumps are much cheaper to operate because they use the stable ground or water temperatures. This type of pump can decrease your energy usage by 30-60%, controls humidity, and remain reliable and sturdy, and has the ability to fit in a variety of homes.What really determines whether or not you would be able to utilize a geothermal heating pump is the landscape around your home, the size of the lot, and the subsoil. These pumps are able to be used in the most extreme weather climates, unlike air-source heating pumps.
Absorption Heat Pumps
Absorption heats are basically the same as air sourced pumps powered by the heat source such as natural gas, propane, etc., instead of electricity. The most common heat source is natural gas, therefore the absorption pump is sometimes referred to as gas-fired heat pumps. This heat pump uses ammonia-water absorption process to provide heating. Just like in conventional heat pumps, the ammonia is condensed within one coil to release the heat. The nits pressure is reduced and the refrigerant is evaporated to absorb the heat.
