Heat pumps are some of the most efficient HVAC systems on the market today. They provide heating and cooling in a single, compact package. Read on to learn why homeowners in Montclair, California, should consider a heat pump installation.
How a Heat Pump Works
Put simply, a heat pump is an air conditioner that can run in either direction. During the cooling season, a heat pump works like any other air conditioner. The refrigerant absorbs heat inside the home and releases it outside. In the winter, the cycle runs backward. The refrigerant absorbs heat from the outdoor air and brings it inside.
Because they depend on the temperature of the outdoor air, heat pumps are highly efficient in areas with relatively mild climates. That includes Southern California. Because of their small size, they’re ideal for condominiums and smaller homes where every square inch of space matters.
