Among many residential property owners of Madison County there’s a popular misconception about the heat pump. Since the name implies “heat,” it’s not unusual that some residents may think that the device serves one purpose. But, heat pumps perform double duty for any household in Madison County.
Just as geothermal systems are not a new fangled technology; the same is true of the heat pump. Both have been around for decades. In recent energy assessments, the heat pump has been found to be significantly more energy efficient than a standard air conditioner or furnace.
How do heat pumps work in the summer and winter?
When temperatures are chilly outside, a heat pump extracts outdoor heat, moving it inside. And when external temperatures have an insufficient supply of hot air, the heat pump enlists an electric heater to warm indoor temperatures.
Heat pumps work in reverse to cool the home during the summer. Resembling an air conditioner, heat pumps operate in a similar fashion, transferring heat outside via a condensing process.
To maximize efficiency, a heat pump often serves as an add-on. For dual fuel systems or a gas furnace, a heat pump affords energy savings all year round.
