The Heat Pump and Your Cooling System

The heat pump is a very versatile mechanical compression cycle refrigeration system that can be reversed to either heat or cool a desired space. It functions like your refrigerator, utilizing electricity to transfer heat from a cool to warmer space, rendering the cool space cooler and the warm space warmer. It is an energy-efficient alternative to furnace and air conditioners and is especially effective in moderate climates.

Reliable Heat Pump Installation and Service


If you live in the Bronx or Westchester county, the Appliance Doctor is the man to call for heat pump installation, a locally owned and operated appliance repair service company with more than three decades of experience. Installation is a bit complicated and consists of two distinct parts: an air handler or indoor unit and an outdoor unit (heat pump) similar to a central air conditioner. The refrigerant is circulated via a compressor that absorbs and releases heat as it travels between the indoor and outdoor units.

The Advantage of Heat Pumps Over Other Systems

Due to the fact that it moves heat rather than generating it, a heat pump is more energy-efficient. It also lowers fuel consumption and costs because it is powered by electricity. The air-source heat pump is the most common type. Its function is to transfer heat between your home and the outside air. Heat pumps offer more cooling comfort because they dehumidify better than standard central air conditioners.
