How Heat Pumps Work

Heat pumps actually work just like any other central air conditioning system, but with a twist. Central air conditioners use the refrigeration process to cool the home. And while you might assume that this refrigeration process only works for cooling (since you would usually associate the term with cold things) this simply isn’t the case.

Refrigeration is the process of heat removal, as moving heat out of a space is really the only way to cool it down. Refrigeration uses a chemical blend called refrigerant to absorb heat from the air in the home and move it outdoors. That’s why the air around the outside unit of an air conditioner feels so warm. A heat pump just takes this same process and reverses it. As refrigerant circulates to the outside unit, it absorbs heat from the outdoors, and it then moves the heat indoors.
