Air-Source Heat Pump

The most common type of heat pump system is the Air-Source heat pump. An air-source heat pump moves heat to and from the outdoor air.

On the outside, an air source heat pump looks exactly like a conventional air conditioner, but the difference is found on the inside with a reversing valve which allows a heat pump to provide a high level of year-round comfort for your home or office.

In summer, a heat pump operates just like a conventional air conditioner. Much like a refrigerator, a heat pump moves heat from the inside to the outside to create a cool environment. Because they move heat rather than generate heat, heat pumps can provide up to 4 times the amount of energy they consume.

In winter, a heat pump will reverse itself to heat the inside of your home when outside temperatures are as low as 40°. Your gas furnace will serve as a supplemental heat source when outside temperatures are lower than 40°-greatly reducing gas heating expenses. In Colorado, 55% of all heating fuel is used when temperatures are 42° or warmer. Running a heat pump instead of a furnace can result in typical savings of $25 to $50 per month on overall heating costs.
