What is a heat pump and how does it work?

A heat pump is an energy-efficient system that moves heat instead of generating it. In warmer months, it extracts hot air and humidity from inside a building and expels it outside, while in colder months, it captures heat from the outdoor air—even in low temperatures—to warm the interior. This method of moving heat rather than generating it means heat pumps can be two to five times more efficient than traditional heating and cooling systems like electric, propane, or oil.

What kind of heat pumps are available?

There are several types of heat pumps designed to meet different heating and cooling needs:

  • Ducted Air-Source Heat Pumps: These systems transfer heat between your house and the outside air, distributing conditioned air through ducts. They are very efficient as they produce more heat energy than the electrical energy they consume.
  • Ductless Air-Source Heat Pumps: Ideal for homes without ductwork, these include mini-split heat pumps with indoor air-handling units and outdoor compressors/condensers, and reverse cycle chillers that generate hot and cold water for use in systems like radiant floor heating.
  • Geothermal Heat Pumps: Utilizing the relatively constant temperatures below the Earth’s surface, these pumps are highly efficient with low operating costs.
  • Absorption Heat Pumps: These are driven by thermal energy sourced from natural gas, solar-heated steam, or geothermal-heated water, making them distinct from more commonly used compression heat pumps.

Which heat pump system is more efficient?

Efficiency can vary based on specific system designs and installation environments. However, geothermal heat pumps generally offer the highest efficiency due to their use of consistent underground temperatures. Air-source heat pumps also maintain high efficiency, particularly in moderate climates, by transferring existing heat rather than generating it.
