It reverses the flow of refrigerant, finds ambient heat in the outdoor air plus delivers it inside
My local part is known for especially long plus brutal winter weather, but the temperature often remains below frosty for months at a time plus respectfully drops into the drawback digits, then we expect upwards of five to six feet of snow every year, blizzard conditions plus dangerous wind chill, heating is a important priority plus can add up to a major expense. While the summers are officially quite short, the heat plus humidity can be a problem. The fall plus Spring tend to be frosty, wet plus windy. When my pal and I first moved into our house, it was only equipped with a heater. The heater did a fantastic task of keeping the residing environment hot throughout the winter. However, the cost of running it made me reluctant to start it up too early in the year… And I was always eager to shut it down at the first sign of Spring! For a couple of years, my pal and I got by with window a/cs plus box fans throughout the summer; I finally decided to look into central a/c. I came across the better choice of an electric heat pump. Although a heat pump is a greater initial expense, it quickly pays for itself through high-efficiency heating, then during the summer, the system performs just like an a/c. It particularly keeps the home perfectly cool on those hot plus humid afternoons. As soon as the weather turns frosty in the fall, I switch the heat pump to heating mode. It reverses the flow of refrigerant, finds ambient heat in the outdoor air plus delivers it inside. The process avoids the burning of fossil fuels, making it appealingly safe, clean plus environmentally friendly. The heat pump costs a lot less to run than the heater! Once the outdoor temperature drops below frosty, the heat pump struggles to keep up. At that point, the heater takes over.
