Trust the experts at Cook’s Comfort Systems, Inc. to take care of your heat pump service needs.
What Is An All-In-One Heat Pump?
To understand how a heat pump works, you need to know how a cooling cycle works. A standard split-system air conditioner has two major components: the evaporator coil and the condenser coil. At the evaporator coil, which is located inside your home, special chemicals called refrigerants absorb heat from the indoor air, becoming gaseous in the process. The refrigerant gas is then pumped to the condenser coil, where a special pump called a compressor forces it to become liquid again.
The heat is released outside your home, and the liquid refrigerant returns to the indoor unit to start over again. As the refrigerant cycles between the condenser and evaporator coils, heat is continuously transferred from your home to the outdoor air, cooling you down.
Heat pumps use the same cooling cycle with one key difference: it’s reversible. In the summer, the heat pump works just like an air conditioner, collecting heat from inside and pumping it outside. In the winter, the cycle runs backward, collecting heat from the outdoor air and bringing it into your home. This is a dual-use system with a very efficient heating and cooling cycle, especially in areas with fairly mild winters such as Tennessee.
We Repair and Maintain All Makes and Models of Heat Pumps
The one downside of a dual-use system is that one machine is carrying your home’s entire heating and cooling load. Heat pumps require regular maintenance compared to continue working at their most efficient. Our service technicians are more than happy to take on that task.
