At Brody-Pennell Heating and Air Conditioning, we have a large selection of heat pumps. However, we find that many clients don’t understand what they are or how they work. Here’s our brief guide to heat pumps and their benefits.
Households in moderate climates such as Los Angeles benefit greatly from heat pumps. Contrary to what the name suggests, these units manage heating and cooling inside a home. Pumps function similarly to a refrigerator, using electricity to move hot air out of the house in summer and into the home in winter.
Heat pumps don’t actively generate air—they relocate it. This cuts down on energy expenditures and reduces costs by as much as 75% compared to traditional heating and cooling methods. Furnaces and air conditioners are significantly less energy-efficient than pump units.
There are three major kinds of air pumps, each of which is ideal for different locations.
The primary forms of heat pumps are air source, ground source, and water source. Each moves hot air in and out of the stated location (air, ground, or water) to manage your home’s temperature.
Our award-winning experts at Brody-Pennell Heating and Air Conditioning can help you navigate the transition to heat pumps.
