Oklahoma HVAC System Specialists’ Guide to Heat Pumps, Wister, Oklahoma

Your HVAC system may depend on a heat pump to function properly, but most homeowners have no idea how a heat pump works. Here, the air conditioning and heating contractors at Turnipseed Service in Wister, OK, explain how a heat pump works, so you’ll be better informed when it comes time to maintain, fix, or repair your HVAC system.

The purpose of a heat pump is to maintain the desired temperature inside a structure. It does this by using a compressor to circulate refrigerant. This is used to capture and move heat so that it can be fed into a house, office, or other building to keep it warm or, in reverse, to cool a space down by moving heat from inside to outside. Turnipseed Service installs, maintains, and fixes heat pumps so that they can do this job effectively.

heat-pumpHeat pumps don’t generate heat or cold but transport heat to raise or lower the temperature. A unit inside the building works with one that stays attached to the outside. These units work together with a compressor, using refrigerant to capture heat and move it from one side to the other. In other words, to warm a house, the unit will capture heat outside and move it in; to cool a house, it will take heat from indoors and move it out. While not effective by itself as an HVAC system in extreme climates, they work best in more moderate climates where separate air conditioners and heaters aren’t necessary to achieve the desired indoor temperature.
