Will a Heat Pump Effectively Cool My Home?

Homeowners looking for a new air conditioning system before this summer season really gets underway will no doubt come to realize that the AC options available to them are actually quite extensive. If you’ve kept up with home cooling technology at all over the years, then you’ve no doubt heard of the heat pump. While this particular system’s name may lead you to think that it’s a heater—well, actually, it is a heater, but one capable of functioning as an effective air conditioner as well. Of course, a heat pump is only going to excel in its operation if it is properly installed and serviced, so make it our number that you dial.

Is a Heat Pump an Effective Cooling System?

Yes, absolutely. Because of the name, or perhaps because the system performs 2 functions, some people seem to think that its operational performance is somehow compromised. This couldn’t be further from the truth, though. In fact, during the summer season, the heat pump acts pretty much exactly like a traditional central air conditioning system. Heat in the home is absorbed by the refrigerant in the system during the evaporation process, and that heated refrigerant travels outdoors, shedding its heat via the condenser. The process simply repeats until your home is as cool as you’d like it to be.

Naturally, the only way that a heat pump is going to effectively cool or, for that matter, heat one’s home, is if that heat pump is of the right size for the home in which it is installed, and if that heat pump is professionally installed and serviced. That’s where we come in. Not only will we make sure that your heat pump suits your needs and those of your home exactly, but we’ll also ensure that it is kept in prime working condition.
