Oftentimes, we find ourselves with a chilly night in Florida, with nothing but a few blankets to keep us warm and toasty. Because of our predominantly warm climate, cold weather rarely occurs on a frequent basis, so there’s no need for a heating system. But compiled into one big unit, heat pumps prove effective for those who like to stay a bit warmer when the temperature drops — the best part is, these products are 2-in-1!
A heat pump is designed to bring the cold air from outside, and bring it inside to warm your home. This is done through a refrigerant and a cycle of evaporation and condensation. Through a change between high pressure and low pressure, the refrigerant is evaporated at a lower pressure, and absorbs the heat from the surroundings during the process. It is then compressed while on it’s way to the other coil where it begins to condense at high pressure. At this time, it begins releasing the heat that was absorbed earlier in the cycle. This heat is ultimately what makes it’s way into your home, and keeps you comfortable.
Depending on the type of heat pump you have, there are a number of benefits posed by each type. Typically, an electric heat pump generates less dry air, which may eliminate the need for a humidifier in your home, as well as providing you with consistent heat. These units are also typically very low in volume.
