Heat Pumps in Raleigh, NC
The heat pump is one of the most useful and versatile comfort systems available for homes (as well as businesses). A heat pump works in a way similar to an air conditioner, but with one important exception: it can provide cooling and heating, all with only a single adjustment to the thermostat.
For homeowners looking for a way to break out of the standard HVAC set-up of an air conditioner packaged with a furnace, a heat pump is a terrific option to consider. Finding the right heat pump for a home can pose some challenges. But that’s all part of our job here at Comfort Master Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc..
We offer complete HVAC services to Raleigh, NC and the surrounding areas, and that includes installing, replacing, repairing, and maintaining heat pumps. Call us today for comfort from our family to yours.
The Basics of a Heat Pump System
How a heat pump performs the miracle of both heating and cooling a home is actually not that complicated. At its core, a heat pump operates the same way as an air conditioner, which is cycling refrigerant between indoor and outdoor coils. The refrigerant evaporates indoors, absorbing heat, and condenses outdoors to release the heat. A compressor serves as the pump that circulates the refrigerant and puts it under pressure.
The difference with a heat pump is that it is designed to reverse the direction that the refrigerant flows. When the reversal occurs, the refrigerant absorbs heat from outside and releases it inside. Older heat pumps sometimes struggled in intense cold temperatures because it was hard for them to absorb sufficient thermal energy from the outside. But the newer models are extremely energy efficient all through the winter. You can expect a heat pump to work well for you in Raleigh, NC weather all through the year.
We Offer Heat Pump Installation and Replacement
Having a heat pump installed in a home takes the same level of skill necessary for installing an air conditioner. That means you shouldn’t entrust the job to anyone except licensed HVAC professionals. Our team, which includes NATE–certified technicians, will be able to pick the right heat pump and size it so it works at its best for many years. If you already have a heat pump in your home but are looking to have a new one put in, call us and we’ll do a great replacement job for you.
