What is a Heat Pump?

A heat pump is an HVAC system that uses a pump to circulate water or refrigerant thoughout your home. The pipes used to do so are either located outside or buried deep underground (for geothermal units). Using this spiderweb of piping, heat pumps move heated or cooled liquid throughout your home. Known for their ability to alternate from heating to cooling, these systems offer two distinct modes.

  • Heating: When outdoor temperatures dip, the unit transfers heat from the outdoor air into your home. On cold days, the outdoor unit pulls the cold air in and saps the heat from it. This heat, through the science of refrigerant heat transfer, is then moved indoors where it is added to your system’s air stream raising its temperature 20 to 30 degrees.
  • Cooling: When the weather in Houston turns hot, the heat pump will work in reverse. It’ll transfer heat from your inside air and eject it outside.

Houston and the surrounding areas are great spots for heat pump installation. In many cases, homeowners actually find value in making the switch. These systems work efficiently even as temperatures approach freezing, though there can be issues when the thermostat dips into the single digits. But as the technology continues to improve, this issue will likely fade.
