Extreme Air & Electric is experienced in the service, repair, and installation of heat pumps in Melbourne, FL, and its surrounding area. A heat pump is a device that transfers heat from one place to another, from indoors to outdoors or from outdoors to indoors.
How Does A Heat Pump Work?
In the winter, a heat pump works like a heater, extracting heat energy from outside and transferring it inside. In the summer, the process reverses, and it will remove heat from your home and transfer it outside like an air conditioner.
Heat pumps work with a series of coils drawing energy from air, water, or the ground. In this way, they are very environmentally friendly and are the most energy-efficient way to heat and cool your home.
Things To Know About Heat Pumps
The geography and climate around your Melbourne or surrounding-area home or office space will determine the appropriate type of heat pump for you.
Unlike a furnace, a heat pump is an appliance that moves heat from one place to another rather than generating heat. Many of our Florida residents choose to use a heat pump in their homes. The advantage to using a heat pump is that you can easily switch it to heat and warm your home without the use of a furnace.
Types of Heat Pumps
Air Source: An air-source heat pump uses a series of coils to collect the heat from the air and transfer it inside or outside.
Water Source: A water-source heat pump collects energy from water by running a series of pipes underwater and then transfers the heat in or out.
Geothermal: A geothermal heat pump, also known as a ground-source heat pump, collects energy from the earth through a series of coils and transfers that energy inside or outside.
