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!
They were on time and very professional. I'm so glad I decided to go with Twintech, thanks!
Timely and appreciated - this was during the hottest days this year when our Air and Furnace way.
Efficient. Professional. No BS or overselling. What was promised, was delivered at a cost-effective price point.
Down to earth.
Professionally done and took care to cover all entry floors to the house for the installers to remove the old furnace and install a new furnace.
I also made recommendations of the tankless water heater that we had installed and items to address. We did not know they also installed tankless water heaters.
Price was not the cheapest nor the most expensive of my quotes. It's the quality of the installation that makes for a good AC system. The twins' knowledge & professionalism was evident in the small details:
Very clean work. Greg made sure that the refrigerant level & temperature were correct. They reinstall the insulation & vapor barrier around the wall. The outside electrical cords were secured to the wall. Proud to support this local company. Thank you.
Great team of guys came to do the work. Very professional. Arrived on time worked very efficiently and were very clean. They answered any questions we had without hesitation. The air conditioner works great and is so quiet. I highly recommend them and they don't try to up-sell anything right from the start.
The service was prompt, professional and very courteous. Competitive price. Would highly recommend this company.
Excellent workmanship, and quick response. Would recommend Twintech to anyone.
My existing 15-yr old A/C went down on me during the first major heatwave of the season. Researched my options, as well as a few different installers, and decided on Twintech.
They gave me confidence right from the beginning. Extremely knowledgeable. Their communication was excellent - always responded to questions quickly. Given we were in a heatwave, they were fully booked. However, within days they were able to fit me in due to a cancellation. Upon learning that the Amana unit I was getting installed was on backorder, TwinTech went to bat for me with the manufacturer and was able to get me the next model up within a day, for the same price - Amazing!
As far as the installation was concerned, I couldnt be more impressed. These guys were clearly very experienced and did a fantastic job. Very clean, polite, timely & informative. They even thoroughly sealed all the exposed gaps in my ductwork. Ive had plenty of heating and cooling work done in the past and have never used the same contractor twice because Ive never been very impressed. However, from now on, Ill always be contacting Twintech first!
They were very friendly and took care of everything. The install looks great (and works great), they were very knowledgeable. Installed our a/c efficiently despite the difficult install location both inside and outside and they made it work.
Phenomenal service, so glad I found these guys a few years back after being "hosed" badly by 3 other companies. I've recommended them to so many, and they all are so thankful.
