Knowing the Different Types of Heat Pump Systems Available

Heat pump systems have the capability of heating as well as cooling. The system utilizes electricity to pump out heat from a cool space to a warm one to move warm air indoors during the winters and vice versa during the summers. So if you are thinking of incorporating heat pumps at your homes but confused in finding the right one, then the following post is just for you!

The heat pump models of today are more efficient and are capable of reducing heating costs by almost 50% when compared to electric furnaces. Following are the different types of heat pumps available today.

Air Source Heat Pump

An air source heat pump utilizes outside air as a heat exchange medium. It is the commonly used and inexpensive heat pumps. These function well in moderate climates.

Water Source Heat Pump

A water source heat pump uses water instead of air to dissipate heat. Such a system requires well, lake or any other water source to operate, hence are not used commonly.

Ground Source Heat Pump

Ground source heat pumps also known as the geothermal heat pumps make use of the thermal energy stored underground to transfer heat. Due to the constant ground temperature, these systems are more efficient. But the installation is complicated and a costly affair.
