How does a heatpump work?

A heat pump works by transferring heat from one location to another using refrigerant. It operates on the same principles as an air conditioner, but it is capable of heating as well as cooling.

In heating mode, the heat pump extracts heat from the outside air (even in cold temperatures) and transfers it inside your home using a refrigerant cycle. The refrigerant absorbs heat from the outside air, which causes it to vaporize into a gas. The gas is then compressed, which raises its temperature even further. Finally, the hot refrigerant gas is circulated through a coil inside your home, where it releases its heat, and the cooled refrigerant then returns to its original liquid state and the cycle starts again.

In cooling mode, the process is reversed, and the heat pump takes heat from inside your home and releases it outside.

Overall, heat pumps are energy-efficient, eco-friendly, and versatile systems that can provide both heating and cooling for your home.
