What is a heat pump?

If you’re looking for an energy efficient heating and air conditioning system that will heat your home in the winter and cool it in the summer, what you need is a heat pump! During the spring and summer, heat pumps operate the same way air conditioners do, using a special refrigerant to pull heat out of the air in your home and a fan to blow the cooled air back in. The winter heating season is where heat pumps stand out—unlike furnaces, which burn natural gas or oil to create heat, heat pumps operate like an air conditioner in reverse, pulling heat energy from the outside air and blowing it into your house!

Since they don’t burn fuel to produce heat, heat pumps are some of the most energy-efficient heating systems around—and at James A. Wheat & Sons, we can install your new heat pump expertly and efficiently.

Geothermal heat pumps

Geothermal heat pumps take heat that is produced by the earth and use it to heat and cool your home. Usually, the earth is cooler than the air in the summertime and warmer than the air in the wintertime, making geothermal heat pumps the most efficient type of heat pump because they rely on the relatively stable temperature of the earth.

There are two different types of heat pumps you can buy, depending on how much available space you have. A horizontal closed loop geothermal heat pump has a large pipe buried in trenches about 4 – 6 feet deep. When the geothermal heat pump turns on, a separate pump turns on and circulates water around the pipes, activating the heat exchange system.

A vertical closed loop geothermal heat pump requires much less land space. It requires a hole about 100 feet deep depending on the size of the system. From there, the piping works much the same way as a horizontal closed loop geothermal heat pump.

While geothermal heat pumps are much more expensive than air source style heat pumps, they are much cheaper and more efficient to operate and usually pay for themselves within a matter of five to seven years. Geothermal heat pumps also have a much longer lifespan than most air source heat pumps. As an added bonus, some geothermal heat pumps provide hot water.
