Heat Pumps in Staten Island, NY
A heat pump is unlike other HVAC systems for a few important reasons. While most comfort systems consist of a separate air conditioner and furnace, a heat pump can heat and cool with a single system. Although you may need a backup heat source for when temperatures outdoors drop to an extreme, the results are well worth it. A heat pump is a high-efficiency heater and air conditioner—and the savings can be significant.

How a Heat Pump Works
A heat pump is a heating and cooling system in one, but it uses the process of refrigeration for both—something you probably associate primarily with cooling. Refrigerant, a chemical blend, moves throughout the system, from the outside condenser/compressor unit to the indoor air handler.
In the summer, refrigerant is able to absorb heat from the air in the home and transfer the air to the outdoors. Those are the very basics of how an air conditioner works, by moving heat.
A heat pump has a few extra components. A reversing valve allows refrigerant to move in the opposite direction, absorbing heat from the outside air and moving it into the home (even when it’s chilly outside). You might have additional heating elements for when it gets chilly, but it’s a great system to get you through most of the year efficiently.
Maintaining Your Heat Pump
We let all homeowners know just how important changing the filter is. Having an efficient heat pump installation isn’t enough if you don’t take proper care of the unit. A clean filter helps to keep air flowing through, but that’s only part of proper heat pump maintenance.
You should also be sure to schedule professional services each and every year. A heat pump maintenance visit can restore the efficiency of your system, as you’ll get a tune–up that helps everything to run a little more smoothly.
