How Do Heat Pumps Work?
A heat pump works in a manner similar to an air conditioner, and in fact, its function is indistinguishable from an AC in the summer: circulating refrigerant through a series of valves and coils that first releases hot air outside your home, then cools the air inside the unit itself. The cool air can then be blown into your home through the ducts.
The only difference between a heat pump and a regular air conditioner is that that process can be reversed: cooling the air outside your home and blowing warm air into your home. That gives it the ability to act as an air conditioner and a heater in one, which can come in handy during our mild Gainesville, FL winters.
Dual Fuel Hybrid Systems
Heat pump technology saves you money mainly in the winter. Refrigerant doesn’t get used up when it generates heat the way natural gas does in traditional furnaces, which means a heat pump doesn’t need to use nearly as much power to do the same job. That can save you a great deal of money on monthly bills, as well as lowering the strain on the system as a whole.
There’s one problem: heat pumps become much less effective when the temperature drops below 40 degrees or so. That doesn’t happen very often around here, but it does happen. Dual fuel hybrid systems simply add a second, smaller furnace onto the heat pump to deliver that little extra heat on the very coldest winter night. Dual fuel systems still provide great savings, and make sure you stay warm on even the coldest nights.
