What are the heat pump’s main parts?

Like all HVAC equipment, your home’s heat pump consists of numerous individual parts that work together to efficiently heat and cool your home to your personal preferences.

As such, here is a closer look at some of the main components within your indoor and outdoor heat pump compartments:

  • Compressor: The compressor is used for circulating refrigerant throughout the system.
  • Evaporator Coil: The evaporator coil absorbs warmth from the outside air or ground and transfers it to the refrigerant.
  • Condenser Coil: The condenser coil releases the absorbed heat into the building through a fan and a heat exchanger.
  • Expansion Valve: The expansion valve regulates the flow of refrigerant into the evaporator coil.
  • Reversing Valve: The reversing valve allows the heat pump to switch between heating and cooling modes.
  • Accumulator: The accumulator stores excess refrigerant, which helps to prevent refrigerant loss and improve system efficiency.
  • Thermostat: The thermostat controls the temperature in the building by turning the heat pump on and off and regulating the flow of refrigerant.

What temperature does a heat pump’s efficiency start to decline?

When the outdoor temperature drops below a specific level, the efficiency of a heat pump begins to deteriorate. This particular temperature is when the heat pump’s output is equal to the heating requirements of a home.

The precise temperature is determined by various factors, such as heat pump size, the dimensions of your home, and preferred indoor temperature. Whenever the exterior temperature falls below 2°C, the effectiveness of a heat pump will dwindle. When the temperature drops below this level, the heat pump has to work much harder to retrieve heat from the surrounding air, reducing its efficiency.

When the exterior temperature falls markedly below 2 degrees, it could be more effective to supplement the heat pump with a backup heating source, such as a furnace. This helps to keep the indoor temperature comfortable while reducing the strain on the heat pump, which can assist in increasing the efficiency of your home throughout the wintertime. In turn, it could reduce your monthly energy costs.

We would be more than happy to help you improve the interior comfort of your home while saving money on your monthly energy costs!

What kind of maintenance is required for a heat pump?

Like all HVAC equipment, your home’s heat pump requires annual maintenance in order to remain efficient and effective throughout its service life.

As such, here are some of the tasks that our certified HVAC technicians will perform throughout your maintenance appointment with us:

  • Clean the outdoor unit
  • Check refrigerant levels and recharge as needed
  • Replace air filters monthly
  • Check the thermostat for proper function
  • Inspect ductwork for leaks or damage

Are heat pumps and water heaters related, or are they the same thing?

A heat pump is a multipurpose machine that can be employed for both air conditioning and heating purposes. It functions by utilizing a refrigerant system to transmit heat from one place to another. A heat pump can retrieve warmth from the surrounding atmosphere or soil and move it into a home when in its heating mode. On the other hand, it can eliminate heat from your home and send it outdoors when in its cooling mode.

 In contrast, a water heater is a machine that is designed primarily to heat water. Water heaters can heat water using a wide range of energy sources, such as electricity, natural gas, propane, and solar energy. As such, while heat pumps and water heaters are used to enhance the interior comfort of your home, they are used differently.

At Boonstra Heating and Air Conditioning, we are pleased to offer a wide range of heat pumps and water heaters that we can customize to the unique needs of your property and personal comfort preferences. As such, if you would like to learn more about our selection, please do not hesitate to reach out to our team to book an appointment! We are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year! We also don’t charge additional fees for after-hours, weekends, or holiday services! Call and speak to us directly or use our online booking system!
