How Can Heat Pumps Both Heat and Cool Homes?
As mentioned above, heat pumps are capable of both heating and cooling homes. How is this possible? It all comes down to a component called the reversing valve, really. This component allows the heat pump to reverse its refrigerant cycle, allowing it to essentially act as a reverse air conditioner during the winter season. A central AC does not actually generate cold air, remember. Instead, the refrigerant in the system absorbs heat from the air in the home, and that heat is vented outside while the cooled air is redistributed throughout the house.
By reversing the refrigerant cycle, the heat pump is able to draw heat out of the air outside. The refrigerant is then compressed, and its thermal energy is used to heat the air for distribution throughout the house. Because only a small amount of electricity is used in this operation, the heat pump is capable of heating with outstanding efficiency.
