What You Need To Know About Heat Pumps?

There are Four important components of the heat pump: the compressor, the condenser, the expansion valve, and the evaporator

One of the most interesting things about a heat pump is that it actually has the same type of components as an air conditioner. Have you ever walked by an air conditioner outside in the summer and felt the blast of heat coming from the back? Well a heat pump blasts the heat into your home instead of pushing it outside.

There are four important components of the heat pump:

The Compressor
This compresses the refrigerant, and increases the temperature.

The Condenser
Once the refrigerant heats up it causes the condenser coil to heat up.

The Expansion Valve
After the coil heats up the expansion valve releases, this allows the refrigerant to give off more heat.

The Evaporator
Now we need the evaporator to cool the refrigerant down, so it can re-enter the compressor and start the cycle all over.

"Highly recommend Evergreen! We've been happy customers for nearly 20 years. Rich, Cliff and Levi recently completed installation of new Trane S9V2 furnace and Trane XL16i air conditioner units at our home in Mill Creek. I took some time lapse video if you want to experience their 8 hour day in 9 minutes (search for "Trane S9V2 Installation" on YouTube). These guys will treat you like family!"
