How Do Heat Pumps Work?
With the help of a heat pump, many of our homes are able to maintain a comfortable temperature during the chilly and cold months. Understanding how a heat pump works can help to ensure that you household continually stays warm and comfortable during fall and winter seasons.
In order to understand how a heat pump works, we first need to discover what a heat pump is. Your heat pump is part of your air conditioning system and usually located outside. With help of the heat pump your home is able to stay warm. A heat pump provides heat to your home by extracting heat from outdoor air. This task is completed with the help of a compressor, condenser, evaporator, air handler. The compressor enables your heating system to receive the maximum amount of heat from the air. Your condenser then moves the hot air received through its coils. With the assistance of your evaporator the hot air is then transferred into your home. The air handler blows the transferred heat into your home ducts. Once the heat or hot air is extracted, it is transferred to the inside of your home and dispersed through your vents.

Your heat pump is able to keep your rooms at a steady temperature as long as you keep your vents opened.
