A Heat Pump is basically an Air Conditioner that can change cycles from cooling to heating and vise versa. It uses the evaporation of a refrigerant, to provide cooling or heating depending on the signal of the thermostat. The mechanics evaporation cycle are the same in a refrigerator as in an air conditioner. The term, Freon, is the term used for any of various nonflammable fluorocarbons used as refrigerants and as propellants for aerosols.
When the heat pump is switched to the heating mode at the thermostat, The compressor starts and the reversing valve solenoid is energized, allowing the valve to reverse the direction of refrigerant flow. The outdoor coil is now the heat absorbing coil extracting heat from the outside air and the indoor coil is the heat dissipating coil giving off heat inside the home.
Heat Pumps have their capacity rated in British Thermal Units or (BTU) the same as Air Conditioners. Generally speaking, a BTU is the amount of heat required to raise the temperature of one pound of water 1 degree Fahrenheit. In heating and cooling terms, 1 "ton of cooling" equals 12,000 BTU. What Do These Stand For? BTU / SEER / HSPF / EER /COP Heat Pumps have several ratings to consider; before making a decision on the best system for you be sure and consult with a qualified heating and cooling contractor like Harding Heating and Cooling to make an optimal decision. Some of the most important ratings are Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating (SEER) for cooling. Heating Seasonal Performance Factor (HSPF) for heating Energy Efficiency Rating (EER) for both or Coefficient Of Performance (COP). Current guidelines require all Heat Pumps to be a minimum 14 SEER or more. If you purchase a Heat pump be sure and get the highest SEER to fit your budget. The higher the SEER rating above the basic 14, the less you will spend to heat and cool your home.
