How Do Heat Pumps Work?
Instead of using a fuel source like propane or oil, heat pumps use electricity to heat and cool your home.
There are two main parts to the heat pump system. An outdoor compressor unit, and a refrigerant and piping system powered by an indoor fan wall unit.
During winter, the outdoor unit collects and compresses low temperature heat from the ground or air, and moves it indoors to heat your home. In the summer, the process is reversed by drawing heat energy from inside your house and sending it out through the outdoor compressor.
We believe installing a heat pump is the best way to keep you and your family uncommonly comfortable all year long, regardless of how extreme the weather may get.
They also save you money! Heat pumps can cover as much space as an air conditioner or heating system at a much lower cost. It is estimated that heat pumps save people seventy-five percent of what they usually pay for conventional heating or cooling.
AND heat pumps are environmentally friendly, which is important to all of us here at LaPlante Electric. The Energy Efficiency Conservation Authority says heat pumps are one of the most energy-efficient ways of heating and cooling your home.
