How Do Heat Pumps Work?

Contrary to the name, heat pumps provide heating and cooling for your home. When outdoor temperatures drop, these units extract warmth from the air, ground, or water and then transfer that heat into your home. 

When the weather turns warm, a heat pump will pump cool water through the convector. The unit’s fans pull in warm air, and the chilled water cools. The unit then pushes the cooled air back into the room.

Heat Pump Efficiency Ratings Explained

All heat pumps have a seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER). The higher the number, the more efficient the unit is. Legally, heat pump systems must have a minimum SEER rating of 13.

Heat pumps also have a heating seasonal performance factor (HSPF) rating. We recommend choosing a heat pump with an HSPH rating of 8 to 10.

Types of Heat Pumps

Thanks to technological advancements, you’re no longer limited to one type of heat pump replacement. Here are a few options:

  • Ducted air-source heat pump: This is the most common type of heat pump. As the name suggests, an air-source outdoor unit pulls warmth from the surrounding air.
  • Ductless mini-split heat pump: If your home has no ducts, this is the heat pump for you. You can also buy a mini-split heat pump with a reverse cycle chiller, which generates cold and hot water instead of air. This allows you to use the unit with radiant heating systems.
  • Geothermal heat pump: Geothermal heat pumps take heat from a ground or water source to heat your home. They’re more expensive up front but cost less to operate than other types of heat pumps. A geothermal heat pump can slash your energy costs by up to 80%.

Advanced Heat Pump Technology for Your HVAC System

Here, you will learn about some of the coolest features available in today’s heat pumps.

  • Variable-speed motors: These motors can eliminate drafts and lower energy costs. Heat pumps with variable-speed motors are quieter than those without.
  • Two-speed compressors: Two-speed compressors are highly efficient and reduce heat pump wear and tear. They’re ideal for zone control systems, too.
  • Dual-fuel systems: A heat pump equipped with a gas furnace is called a dual-fuel system. These systems solve the issue of operating inefficiently when the weather gets cold.
  • Desuperheaters: Heat pumps equipped with desuperheaters take waste heat produced by the unit’s cooling mode and use that waste to warm up water.

When Is It Time To Replace Your Heat Pump?

We recommend heat pump replacement if:

  • Your unit is more than 15 years old. This is about the time that problems start to develop, especially if you haven’t regularly maintained your heat pump.
  • You have to make frequent repairs. The cost of a new heat pump may be lower than the total price of repairs.
  • Your heat pump won’t heat or cool your home, or the unit heats/cools your house unevenly.
  • Your energy bills are suddenly skyrocketing. This could indicate that your heat pump isn’t operating as efficiently as it once did.
  • Your heat pump is making unsettling noises. If your heat pump is grinding, rattling, banging, or screeching, it may be time for a replacement.

What your community is saying about Us

  • Alexa C

    Amazing service! We had air conditioning installed in our home – after giving me a very reasonable estimate, they had us scheduled within a couple days. They showed up on time, worked hard, very professional and kind.

  • Sara F

    I just bought a home and had Simply Efficient take a look at my heating and cooling system. The entire process from setting up the appointment with Esther through to the maintenance visit with Vlad was seamless and easy!

  • Pavlo D

    Simple and Efficient has exceeded our expectations in every way. Their team of professionals installed our AC system quickly and with the utmost quality. David, the CEO, provided expert guidance, and their receptionist was consistently professional and helpful.

  • Manoj S

    Terrific team and amazing customer service! I found Simply Efficient through Thumbtack last year when I was exploring heat pumps. Over the last year or so, their support has been phenomenal and I guess “simply efficient”. The team goes above and beyond in everything they do; and Esther has been on top of her game every time I call them. Keep up the good work!

  • Tomas I

    Vlad and Alex did a great job replacing my old busted heat pump. Their quote came in well below the competing quotes I got. I have a fairly complicated 3-zone system with both heat pump and gas furnace and I really appreciated how they recommended which components that still were good and which to replace.

  • Junpeng X

    I recently had the pleasure of working with Simply Efficient Heating & Air Conditioning, LLC for the installation of a Mitsubishi HyperHeat 2 Ton Variable Speed Heat Pump in my home in Kirkland, WA. From the beginning to the end of the process, my experience was nothing short of exceptional, thanks to the professionalism, responsiveness, and expertise of Alex, Max, and Oleh.

  • Kathy A

    From start to finish Simply Efficient was excellent! I found them through Thumbtack and they quickly scheduled me for my in home walk-through and estimate. Dmitriy was fantastic and listened to my wishes, priorities, and answered my endless questions 🙂

  • Yinglan S

    I am extremely satisfied with the service provided by Simply efficient heating and conditioning. David, the owner, and his team did an outstanding job. They were able to provide an estimate and fix my furnace within just one week. Furthermore, their prices are affordable. I will definitely recommend them to all my friends and family!
