As the popularity of heat pump technology continues to rise, you might not be surprised to find that there are many different types, including an air-source heat pump and a ground-source heat pump. But first, how do heat pumps work?
Heat pumps are designed to transfer heat from one place to another to cool or heat a room. There are two units in a heat pump system: the evaporator which is outdoors and the condenser which is indoors.
To heat a room, the process begins in the evaporator which contains a liquid called a refrigerant, which begins to absorb heat from its surroundings (which it can even do in cold weather) and evaporates into a gaseous state. It then passes through a compressor, which decreases the volume of the gas, causing a rise in pressure and heat. Then in the condenser, it condenses which warms the air inside and is then spread into the room via a fan. Now cooled and in liquid form again, the refrigerant returns to the evaporator and the cycle starts again! This can happen in reverse to remove heat from a room and keep it cool.
But as we mentioned before, there are many kinds of heat pumps that can extract heat from different sources. Above, we described an air-source heat pump. There are also ground-source heat pumps and water-source heat pumps. Some even draw heat from more than one source making them extra efficient.
If you have any more questions about the air-source heat pump system, don't hesitate to call Twintech Heating & Cooling at 1-844-894-6832! We'll happily answer your questions and can even schedule you a free consultation with an air pump expert!
Great product, great service, great follow-up. The Twintech Heating and Cooling arranged removal of my existing oil tank and they installed the new gas furnace Amana (made in USA). I am very happy with the final result and support I received throughout the process. My thanks go to the entire Twintech team for their professionalism, great communication and follow-up.
We've had Twintech provide us with work in the past, for an inground pool heater and required rough-in for a new gas stove. More recently they provided the same friendly, professional, timely and clean installation of our new furnace.
Reasonable price and the workmanship was prompt and timely and the employees were great to deal with.
The sales process was friendly, informative, and very consultative. They worked hard to earn our business by taking a careful look around our home to assess our needs, providing a lot of information about the product, and answering all our questions and finding the right solution for our home at a competitive price. They prepared us very well for what to expect on installation day, and the installation went very smoothly - no surprises, all very professional! They gave us a call after installation to ensure we were happy with the work. We're very happy that we chose to work with TwinTech to get our new furnace.
Twintech promptly responded to request for quotation. They were thorough and helpful in explaining options. The quote was very competitive. Installation of new furnace was very professionally completed. Excellent work.
When our old oil furnace finally broke down we decided it was time to finally convert to natural gas and finally install central air conditioning at the same time. Knowing it was going to be a significant investment for us, we wanted to make the right choice. Twintech came highly recommended by a friend and we were not disappointed. From the first contact with the salesperson, until the final touches on the installation, we were so pleased with their service. Everyone from the company was so friendly, efficient and a pleasure to deal with. Best of all, the cost was very competitive. We would certainly recommend Twintech to anyone requiring HVAC work in their home.
Mitch from Twintech came out for our annual furnace inspection. We found him to be friendly, conscientious & he left the work area clean. We were also very impressed with the thoroughness of the job he did. This is the 2nd job weve had Twintech do for us & have been very happy with the results for each. We highly recommend this company. Thank you, Mitch, Dave & Greg.
Work was done on schedule, professionally, according to quote and with minimal inconvenience to building users. Very happy with the end result. The only area for improvement from my experience - need more timely quoting process.
The team was great! Very knowledgeable, professional and extremely helpful. A few days after install the unit didnt seem to be working, user error, but within minutes of contacting them..on a Saturday.. a tech was on the phone troubleshooting with us. I highly recommend Twintech for your cooling or heating needs. They stand by their products and a pleasure to deal with.
During the hottest week in the summer our old A/C decided to call it quits. I called Twintech Heating & Cooling after receiving a referral from a family member; came highly rated for being an honest, family-run business, who appreciates their customers. Dave was able to accommodate my hectic schedule and book a late evening appointment to walk through the specifics. Greg and Mitch arrived exactly on time a few days later, were very polite and friendly, and within a couple of hours had a new unit up and running. I also received a follow-up call to ensure we were happy with the Amana.
