Heat Pumps in North Dallas, TX
In most homes throughout North Dallas, TX, the configuration of a home comfort system is an air conditioner and a furnace contained in a single cabinet, with a blower fan. But although the two are housed in one space, they are two completely different systems.
A heat pump system, on the other hand, is one single device that can provide your living space with both heating and cooling—plus they are quite often more energy efficient as heating systems than conventional furnaces are, especially in areas such as ours that experience typically mild winters. Contact Frymire Home Services today to learn more about these systems and how we live by our motto of “A Higher Degree of Comfort.”
How a Heat Pump System Works
Understanding how a heat pump works isn’t too hard if you already know how an AC system works. An air conditioner utilizes the movement of refrigerant between two sets of coils (one indoors and one outdoors) to transfer heat from inside of the home and to disperse it outside, which lowers the temperature inside.
A heat pump system uses this same process, although it can also work in reverse. A component called a reversing valve switches the direction in which the refrigerant flows. In heating mode, instead of removing heat from the home, the heat pump removes heat from the outside and disperses it into the house. With a simple adjustment on your thermostat, you can enjoy year–round comfort from one single system.
Is a Heat Pump Installation Right for You?
The air conditioner/furnace combo is an effective comfort solution for many homeowners throughout North Dallas, TX and the surrounding areas. But would a heat pump installation do you better? Here are a few reasons it might:
- Convenient: Heat pump systems combine all of your home comfort needs into a single system—making it easier to service and maintain.
- Saves Energy: Compared to other heating systems, such as a furnace, a heat pump consumes less energy. The reason for this is because a heat pump uses energy to move heat, rather than to generate it.
- Safe: Gas–powered heaters today are built with safety in mind. However, if you are concerned about using natural gas to heat your home anyway, an electric heat pump is an excellent option. The cabinets do not even get warm when they’re in heating mode.
