What Is a Heat Pump?

A heat pump is designed to provide both heating and cooling for your home. Unlike central air conditioners and furnaces, a heat pump doesn’t actually generate anything. Instead, it transfers heat in and out of your home to maintain comfortable temperatures.

A heat pump-based system works best with dedicated airflow equipment like an air handler. In fact, you can think of a heat pump as the outdoor unit and the air handler as the indoor unit. They work together to provide comfort that in many cases is more energy-efficient than traditional systems.

Difference between Heat Pumps and Furnaces

Many heat pump models superficially resemble furnaces. But a key difference is where the heat comes from. Furnaces generate their own heat using fuel like electricity or natural gas. A heat pump simply moves hot air where you want it to go.

Types of Heat Pumps

There are actually several different types of heat pumps. Some differ based on the fuel source, while others are dependent on how the heat or air conditioning reaches your home.

For a wide selection of quality options, consider investing in a Lennox heat pump. Their single-stage Merit® series offers affordable heating and cooling. And for top-of-the-line efficiency, the Signature Collection boasts some of the quietest and most energy-efficient technology available today.

Choose from Natural Gas, Electric, and Even Geothermal Models

A key difference between heat pump designs is the fuel source needed to drive the heating and cooling process. Natural gas heat pumps are some of the most energy-efficient models around, although an electric heat pump can be particularly useful for climates with mild winters.

There are even geothermal heat pumps, which rely on the internal heat of the ground below to provide consistent comfort where and when you want it.

Ductless Mini-Split Heat Pumps

Other heat pumps can work without the extensive network of air ducts most HVAC systems have. These are known as ductless mini-splits. Ductless mini-split heat pumps are an effective choice for smaller homes as well as separate spaces like workshops or garages.

Trane heat pumps come in both standard and ductless models. Popular for its reliable performance and energy efficiency, R&D Indoor Comfort pairs quality equipment with exceptional installation service. We’ll ensure your new heat pump works at peak efficiency from the very beginning.

Benefits of a Heat Pump HVAC System

Once you’ve chosen the right heat pump model, installation can begin. Before you know it, you’re reaping all the benefits! Some standout advantages include:

  • Convenient, All-in-One Technology — Fewer pieces of equipment means less to keep track of, and may even result in needing fewer repairs. Using a heat pump is fast and easy, especially when combined with modern accessories like a smart thermostat.
  • Unrivaled Energy Efficiency — A heat pump can be one of the most energy-efficient pieces of HVAC equipment you can own. Since it doesn’t have to generate its own heat, that can product a sizable reduction in your monthly bill. Think about the savings over the lifetime of a well-maintained heat pump!
  • Quieter and More Reliable Performance — Since the heat pump is kept outside the home, you won’t have to worry about noisy operation like you do with furnaces. And since there’s less machinery overall, quality heat pump maintenance essentially protects your entire HVAC system.
