Are heat pumps and furnaces the same thing?
Although both a furnace and a heat pump are kinds of heating systems, they perform differently and have different energy saving features that homeowners should be aware of before deciding which to install in their homes.
A furnace produces heat by fuel combustion, generally natural gas, oil, or propane, and distributing it across the residence through a duct system. The furnace creates heat by consuming the fuel in a combustion process, which is then passed through a heat exchanger. The heated air is then distributed all through the house by the duct system. Furnaces are helpful for heating in cold weather. A heat pump, on the other hand, is a device that moves temperature from one place to another. A heat pump can provide both cooling and heating in accordance with the season and your personal thermal preferences.
What are the main parts of a heat pump?
The main parts of a heat pump include the following:
· The compressor, condenser, and expansion valve are all housed in the outdoor unit, which is installed outside the building.
· The indoor unit is the portion of the heat pump that is installed inside the building and includes the air handler, which circulates heated or cooled air throughout your home.
· The refrigerant is a liquid that circulates through the heat pump, absorbing and releasing heat.
· The thermostat is a device that regulates the temperature and configurations of the heat pump.
· Ductwork is a system that distributes warmed or cooled air all across your home.
When should I plan maintenance on my heat pump?
Generally speaking, homeowners should aim to have their home’s heat pump professionally serviced at least once a year. If you are using your heat pump for both cooling and heating, then we would suggest booking an appointment with a professional HVAC technician twice a year instead. When you are using your heat pump for heating, we recommend booking your service appointment in the early fall to ensure your unit is prepared to function optimally for you during the wintertime as temperatures in the area drop. On the other hand, to ensure your heat pump is ready to operate efficiently during warmer temperatures, we would advise homeowners to book an appointment with us in the early spring, again providing you with enough time to have your unit back up and operating before you rely on it each day to cool your home.
When was the last time you had your home’s heat pump professionally serviced? If you can’t remember or it has been well over a year since your previous appointment, please do not hesitate to reach out to the team at Mr. Furnace Heating and Air Conditioning to schedule your service appointment with one of our certified and experienced HVAC technicians today! We’re available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and do not charge an additional service fee for work conducted after hours, on weekends, or during holidays!
What is the difference between SEER and HSPF on a heat pump?
SEER and HSPF ratings are employed to evaluate heat pump efficiency, but they measure separate things.
The cooling efficiency of air conditioning units and heat pumps is measured by SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio). SEER is calculated by dividing the unit’s cooling output produced by the system over a normal cooling season by the overall electric energy input during the same time frame. A higher SEER rating means the hardware is more energy-efficient and can provide more cooling while requiring less power.
The heating seasonal performance factor (HSPF), in contrast, is a measurement utilized to evaluate the heating efficiency of heat pumps. HSPF is determined by dividing the entire heating output produced by the system over a typical heating season by the total electric energy input over the same period of time. A higher HSPF rating signifies that the system is more fuel efficient and capable of producing more heat while consuming less power.
