How does a heat pump work?

A heat pump transfers heat from one place to another. It sounds simple, but where is the heat coming from if fuel isn’t being burned?

A system uses advanced technology and the refrigeration cycle to heat and cool your home. This allows a heat pump to provide year-round indoor comfort – no matter what the season is.

In the warmer months, the heat pump can act as an air conditioner – drawing out interior heat and humidity, and redirecting it to the outside. During colder months, heat from the outdoor air is extracted and transferred to the interior of your home. Believe it or not, even a 32°F day produces enough heat to warm your home. Science is amazing!

For example, when there is a temperature difference such as your 98.6°F body and 32°F air, heat is transferred from the warmer object to the cooler air. This is why you start to feel cold! So when you’re trying to pull heat from 32°F air, you have to put it in contact with something even colder. That’s the job of the refrigerant in a heat pump.

Colder months: Heat pumps pulls heat from the outside air and transfer the heat to your home.

Warmer months: Heat pumps pulls warm air and humidity from inside your home and transfer it outside, leaving cooler air indoors.

F.A.Q.

Conventional Heat Pumps and Ductless Heat Pumps are the most efficient ways to heat & cool your home available today. If you have any questions about heat pumps, feel free to reach out to our friendly plumbing & heating experts.

What is a ductless heat pump system?
A ductless heat pump is a type of heat pump that does not require the use of air ducts.

Ductless heat pump systems consist of an outdoor unit and one or more indoor air blower units, often called “heads”.

Indoor heads are typically mounted high on a wall or in a recessed ceiling fixture. Each indoor head is added to a heating in your home or building and cooling zone that can be controlled independently.

Do I still need my old baseboard heaters or furnace?
With a conventional heat pump system, you can keep your wood stove or gas or oil furnace as a backup if it’s a newer system, or we sometimes recommend replacing it with a modern electric-powered air handler (or furnace).

With a ductless heat pump system, we encourage you to keep your existing electric baseboard heaters as a backup source of heat on days when the temperature gets below zero or in rooms where the heads can’t reach.

We can explain the advantages and disadvantages of various backup heat systems for your specific home or building needs.

How long will a heat pump last?
When cared for properly, heat pumps will last 15 to 20 years.

We often see many of the systems installed during the 1980’s still functioning well today.

What incentives are available for heat pumps?
Once in a while, some heat pump manufacturers will offer discounts or rebates, depending on what kind of system you buy.

BC Hydro and Fortis BC frequently offer incentives as well.

We encourage you to contact us to find out what heat pump incentives exist for you today.
