What Is a Heat Pump?
A heat pump is essentially no different than an air conditioner, and the principles behind it are the same. Refrigerant circulates through a series of coils and valves. Heat is released in the outside part of the system, then heat is pulled from the air inside the system. (The cool air is then blown into your home with a fan.) The refrigerant cycles through that endlessly in order to provide cool air for your Los Angeles home.
It can release warm air in your home in the winter as easily as cool air. And with a professional service like AZ Air Conditioning and Heating on your side, you can be assured of getting the best heat pump installation, maintenance, repair and replacement service in Los Angeles.
What Are the Benefits of Heat Pumps?
In the summer, heat pumps make excellent air conditioners, but it’s during the winter that they really earn their keep. By heating the home from the refrigerant – rather than burning gas or eating electricity the way other heaters do – it uses much less energy. That’s not only pragmatic, it does its part for Mother Nature by easing our overloaded power system.
Of course, that means moving swiftly when repairs are needed, and also setting up regular maintenance sessions to looking for problems before they start. At AZ Air Conditioning and Heating, we’ve made these the staples of our business philosophy, and it’s served us well ever since we started. Give us a call today!
