Is A Heat Pump Ideal For Your Florida Home?

Is A Heat Pump Ideal For Your Florida Home?Florida homeowners looking to upgrade their HVAC system should consider a heat pump. Used in conjunction with electric heating and cooling systems, a heat pump works against the natural flow of air by forcing cool air to turn into warm through a series of heating and cooling operations. First, a coil of  refrigerant is heated until it turns into vapor, which is then pressurized in a compressor. The vapor is sent through a condenser where cold air is blown over the coil. The vapor cools back to a liquid state and the air warmed by the process is sent through the ductwork of the house. The process repeats, keeping the house warm. Read More »

The Geothermal Pool Heat Pump: How It Works

The Geothermal Pool Heat Pump: How It WorksNeed a pool heat pump? Consider going geothermal. Geothermal heat pump systems, which have been in use since the 1940s, use 25 to 50 percent less electricity than standard systems. Air-source heaters, the most common type used to heat pools, require up to 44 percent more energy to do the same job than a geothermal heat pump. Because geothermal heat pumps have fewer moving parts and the pumps are housed indoors, they are very durable and can last longer than air-source heat pumps. Read More »
