There is a lot to love about the Pacific Northwest, from our sweeping mountain views to our vibrant cities and neighborhoods. One other part of life in the PNW that many people enjoy is the fact that our winters are relatively mild. No, not as mild as, say, Arizona’s, but we are not going to see extreme cold the way that they do in Minnesota or Vermont. Even so, you are definitely going to need a great heater installed in your home.
There is a world of difference between “relatively mild” and “comfortable,” after all. Because of our particular climate, the heat pump is actually an ideal solution for people in this area looking to heat their homes in an efficient manner. If you are thinking about replacing your heater this winter (or, for that matter, your air conditioner this summer) then you should definitely be adding the heat pump to your shortlist. Read on to learn more about how a heat pump in Shoreline, WA can benefit you.
Year-Round Comfort, One Efficient Package
Remember when we said that homeowners thinking about replacing their heaters or their air conditioners should give the heat pump some serious consideration? Well, that was an only-slightly-veiled way of saying that the heat pump is both. If you are not yet familiar with the basics of the heat pump, take a moment to let that sink in.
Still with us? Great! Because if that sounds like a good deal to you, we want to let you know how it all works. After all, that may come off as being too good to be true to some. We assure you, however, that it is indeed possible.
Basically, a heat pump just acts as a central air conditioning system that is also capable of reversing its operation. In the summertime, the system evaporates refrigerant in the indoor evaporator coil, which allows it to remove heat from the air passing through that coil. The refrigerant travels out to the outdoor condenser coil, shedding its heat as it evaporates.
In the winter, the process is reversed. Refrigerant is evaporated in the coil outside, and is then compressed before entering the indoor unit. There, it is condensed, and its heat is used to heat air for distribution throughout the house!
