Heat pumps can operate in both heating and cooling modes, making them versatile options.
Heat pumps are heating units that operate by transferring heat from one place to another. A heat pump can be used in a residential or commercial structure to provide heat throughout the space during the winter season, but they can also operate during the warmer months to transfer indoor heat outdoors. This type of unit works by transferring thermal energy in the opposite direction of heat transfer, absorbing heat from a cold space and transferring it to a warmer space. In order to operate, a heat pump needs an external power source. Most heat pumps include four key components, which are the compressor, the condenser, the evaporator, and the expansion valve. They also need a medium to complete the heat transfer, which is called refrigerant.
Heat pumps can operate in both heating and cooling modes, making them versatile options for residential properties.
