How Does Heat Pump Differ from an Air Conditioner?
Both air conditioners and heat pumps can be used to cool your home. It’s not until you turn on the heat that the differences between the two appliances become clear. This is when your heat pump flexes its superpower – the ability to provide heat by running like an air conditioner, only backwards. Air conditioners, also called “straight cool systems”, don’t provide heating by default.
How Does a Heat Pump Work?
A heat pump works by transferring heat from one place to another.
Here’s a simple way to understand how this works. When cooling your home, the heat pump (like an air conditioner) transfers heat to the outside from the inside of your home. To heat your home, the cycle runs in reverse: the heat pump pulls heat to the inside from the outside. This switch is possible via the heat pump system’s extra reversible valve. The switching process takes place automatically without you noticing anything.
Heat pumps function best in temperatures above the freezing point, which makes them well suited to locations with mild to moderate winters, like Southwest Florida. When temperatures drop below freezing, the heat pump will need backup from an auxiliary heat source, like a heat strip (see below). Although freezing temperatures are a rare occurrence in Southwest Florida, we still recommend having a secondary heat source, like a heat strip, in addition to your heat pump. Often, the backup heat source will also trigger when the heat pump first cycles on. This happens in order to heat your home faster than the heat pump is able to on its own.
About Heat Strips
Many Florida homes have standard air conditioners with heat strips installed in the air handler. A heat strip consists of wires, or coils, heated with electricity. These heated coils heat the air that flows over them, like a toaster or a blow dryer. Because this is not very energy efficient, heating your home in this way will result in higher electricity costs than heating with a heat pump. But, due to a heat pump’s higher initial price tag, air conditioners with heat strips can still make sense in areas where heating is necessary only for limited periods.
