Heat Pumps outside a house

What Are Heat Pumps and How Do They Work?

Heat pumps are used for heating and cooling homes and buildings. During winters, they bring warm air from the outside into your offices or homes. In the summers, they work like air conditioners cycling the warm air outside to deliver cool air into your rooms.

Heat pumps are considered to be energy-efficient appliances. You can choose from different types of heat pumps such as ducted or mini ducted (mini splits), ductless and central units as per your structural requirements.

How heat pumps work is pretty simple; they have a compressor that pumps refrigerant air between two heat exchanger coils, one of the coils absorbs the heat from its surroundings, while the other condenses this air. During winters, it absorbs outside heat to be released in your homes, and during summers, this process is reversed.

Some of the steps that are involved in heat pump installation are:

  • Step 1: The condenser is installed and placed outside the house or building.
  • Step 2: An air handler mount is installed, which releases cold or warm air inside.
  • Step 3: The connection between the air handler and the condenser is established.
  • Step 4: All possible wires, refrigerant lines, and others, are covered to avoid accidents.
  • Step 5: Final connections and airflow check takes place along with adding the covers.

The cost for installing a heat pump depends on how it is installed and the size of your room, along with the heat pump model. Call us today to learn about energy-efficient rebates that may be available to you, or visit to see what is currently promoted!
