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!
Twintech replaced our aging furnace and air conditioner recently. I highly recommend this company. Their quote was competitive, they were on time and respectful of our home and extremely professional. From the salesman to the installers and the owner who followed up afterward to ensure we were satisfied, we are very pleased with the service. We are looking forward to working with this company for all of our HVAC needs for the years to come. Excellent workmanship and service!
We wanted to get our AC replaced as it was 22-years old and added to this our furnace was costing more and more to repair. So, we decided to get both the furnace and AC replaced.
After going through a few quotes and product reviews we decided to go with Twintech. The three-men crew arrived early in the morning, wasted no time and got to work right away. By 2:00 pm, they were all done. Ive found their work to be top notch and they were completely professional. I had all my questions answered to my satisfaction both during the progress of their work and at end.
I have pleasure in recommending Twintech to anyone who is looking to get their furnace or Ac replaced
Our air conditioner died On a Saturday and within hours Dave came out to take a look and discuss replacement/repair options.
The new air conditioner was installed on the Wednesday. The new unit was installed quickly. The installers were friendly and cleaned up afterwards.
We noticed a slight leak around the furnace that night and they came out the next day and fixed the issue. It has been working great and is quieter than our previous unit.
Very satisfied and would highly recommend TwinTech.
I contacted TwinTech to replace my 20-year old A/C. Dave, their service rep, promptly replied and was at my home within 2 hours. He was friendly and knowledgeable and didn't try to upgrade or oversell their A/C units but suggested the best fit for my small 1000 feet bungalow. Although this was during a heatwave and very busy, they were able to fit me in 2 days later. The TwinTech crew installed a 1.5 ton Ducane A/C unit that is now running smoothly while maintaining a constant cooling temperature. The crew were very courteous, professional and efficient and I will definitely recommend TwinTech to family and friends. I much appreciated your great service.

We had a great experience. The guys who installed our a/c did a nice job. Cleaned up.
excellent crew, fast and efficient! Would call them again when I need a new furnace.
Professional, courteous and efficient, dont need to say more than that! Use them you will not regret it.
TwinTech was a pleasure to deal with from the estimate through installation. We replaced a 28 year old a/c unit with one recommended by TwinTech's sales representative Dave who took the time to go over the product with us and answer any questions. The warranty is for 10 years parts and labour and they will complete the registration for you. Installation was by Greg (owner) and Mitch and Spencer who were quick and efficient and left everything clean and tidy.
Very professional, from the sales consultation and inspection to the final installation. Met every expectations we had for the job. A local business with great client support. We highly recommend. Twintech is a blue chip! Thanks!
I left a live chat message on their website that my air conditioning was not working. Within 1hr a representative called me to discuss my options.
The next day he came to the house to review my needs and give me a price for a new system. Price quoted was less than I expected and the installation was completed the following day. I found their salesman and the installers very knowledgeable and easy to deal with. All my questions were answered. Everything was properly explained in regards to what unit was needed and why, along with instruction where needed for use.
The installers made sure everything was working properly before they left.
