Heat Pump Installation Basics – Sizing Your System
When installing a heat pump in your home, it is extremely important that the system is sized properly—a heat pump that is too small will have to work overtime to get your house to the proper temperature, and a heat pump that is too big will cycle on and off far too frequently, greatly reducing its efficiency. At Michael Bonsby Heating & Air Conditioning, our expert heat pump installation specialists will be able to take measurements before installing your heat pump so your new system can heat your home as efficiently and effectively as possible.
Benefits of New Heat Pump Installation in Rockville, MD
Heat pumps are efficient because they don’t burn fuel to create heat. Instead, they use the principles of an air conditioner in both the summer (when they function as air conditioners) and in the winter. When you install a new heat pump, you could see:
- Increased energy efficiency
- Lower energy bills
- Fewer repairs and maintenance issues in the near future
- Lower noise levels
- More even room temperatures
- And more!
How do they do this? Air conditioners don’t actually produce cool air—instead, they remove heat from hot summer air and then blow the air back into your home (this is why the air around your compressor always feels so hot). In the winter, heat pumps do the same thing, but in reverse—they pull heat from the outside air and use that to heat the air in your home. This transfer of heat allows them to effectively heat your home without burning fuel—doesn’t get any more efficient than that!
How Do Heat Pumps Work in the Winter
Many people ask how heat pumps work when the temperatures drop in winter. We get this question all the time, and it’s no surprise really—after all, it’s hard to imagine that there’s any heat in the air when the outside temperature is 40 F or below. But think about this—how cold can your refrigerator get? Pretty cold, right? Refrigerators work like mini heat pumps, pulling out heat energy even when it seems really cold in the fridge already.
Your heat pump operates the same way. Just because it doesn’t FEEL warm outside doesn’t mean there isn’t heat in the air (unless the temperature gets to absolute zero: -460F), and a heat pump can pull that heat out and blow it into your home. In fact, most heat pumps have an operating range as low as 25 F!
Best of all, heat pump technology is improving every day! Many modern heat pumps include what are known as Reverse Cycle Chillers (RCCs), which eliminate the periodic blowing of cool air that most heat pumps go through during their defrost cycles. RCCs also allow heat pumps to operate at much lower temperatures—in fact, some RCCs can provide hot water at 115 F even when it’s 15 F outside!
