The weather is slowly beginning to change and now it is time to start thinking about getting your Reading, PA heating system ready for the winter weather ahead. If you need annual heating system maintenance, now is the best time to call The Plumbing Works and schedule your appointment. And if you are ready to replace your equipment we would love to talk to you about heat pumps in Reading, PA.
A heat pump works all year long to keep your home the temperature you desire. There are many different types of heat pumps but the most popular rely on ground or air heat transfer. An air source heat pump pulls warm air from the winter air and pushes it into the home. During the summer the heat pump pulls warm air from the home and pushes it outside so that the home cools down. An air source heat pump uses two units. One unit is indoors and is the air handler that pushes the air throughout the home. The unit outdoors looks similar to an air conditioner unit and contains the compressor and refrigerant that absorbs and releases heat as it flows between the two units in a loop.
Similar to the air source heat pump is the geothermal heat pump. But instead
of using air, the geothermal heat pump uses heat extracted from the ground.
Pipes are placed in the ground in a series of loops and water or refrigerant
circulates through the piping and either absorb or release heat. They
work pretty similar to the air source heat pump but are actually more
efficient because ground temperatures remain pretty consistent throughout
the year. Because there isn't a huge fluctuation in temperature the
system works more efficiently. They have a 400% efficiency rating compared
to the most efficient gas furnace, they are safe because they are don't
use a combustible or produce fumes, and they enhance comfort because they
don't produce hot blasts but provide steady warm air. Geothermal heat
pumps are also the most environmentally friendly way to heat and cool
your home and do not produce greenhouse gases. It is a wonder why new
homes don't automatically come with
geothermal heat pumps!
