How They Function

Here at Southern Air Heating, Cooling & Plumbing, you can rely on us to be trustworthy when it comes to navigating the many different appliances available to homeowners. We’re always happy to guide you toward the most efficient options for your home, as well as the devices that will save you the most money. A heat pump, in particular, is an extremely versatile appliance in that it can act as both an air conditioner and a furnace. This device uses air pressure and refrigerant to create heat within your home in the winter and absorb and transport heat outside your house in the summer.

Heat Pump Vs. Standard AC Unit

So how does a heat pump stack up against a conventional air conditioning system? A heat pump saves a lot more energy during its cycles than a standard AC unit. This device simply transfers heat from inside your home to outside of it, and vice versa in the winter, instead of creating warm air all by itself. On the other hand, air conditioners are not quite as versatile and cannot reverse their natural function. A heat pump can save you lots of money in the long run thanks to its economical design and adaptability.
