A heat pump has at least one big advantage over a standard air conditioning unit, because the heat pump does the work of the air conditioner and the heating source for the winter days and nights. Amazingly, there is no need to install separate systems to heat and cool your home. Imagine a system that simply does the work of both. So, this is almost a green system and it is cost-effective to buy and install. A heat pump air conditioner can save you some operating money and add protection for the environment.
The heat pump is available in 1 1/2 ton, and in 1/2 ton increments up to 4 ton, and then it goes from 4 to 5 ton. The highest SEER rating available is 21 SEER. This is available in the 3 ton variable speed compressor model. The 5 ton model is available in 18 SEER. The split system where part of the unit is outside requires a 3′ X 40″ pad. If the customer desires a roof mounted system, then all of the parts are in one case. Heat Pumps Mesa AZ will do it all.
The air-source heat pump is one of the most common systems and one of the newest systems on the market. This modern technology takes heat from the outside air and pumps it to inside of the home over refrigerant-filled coils. The system at this point would be similar to what is on the back of your refrigerator. The air source is pretty basic. There are two fans, the refrigeration coils, a compressor, and a reversing valve inside to make it all work.
The reversing valve makes the air heat pump cool. This valve reverses the flow of the refrigerant, so that the system begins to operate in the opposite direction. Instead of pumping heat inside your home, the heat pump releases it, just like your air conditioner does. The refrigerant absorbs heat on the indoor side of the unit and flows it back to the outside when the valve is reversed. Releasing the heat allows the refrigerant to cool down again and travel back inside take more heat outside. This process repeats itself until the house is cool. Air-source Heat Pumps Mesa AZ use an outdoor fan to bring air over refrigerant-filled coils. Two sets of these coils transfer this heat indoors. There it’s blown away from the coils by a second fan and distributed in the home.
