How Does an Amana Heat Pump Work?
An air-source heat pump uses advanced technology and the refrigeration cycle to heat and cool your home. This allows a heat pump to provide year-round indoor comfort – no matter the season!
Heat Pump in Cooling Mode
In cooling mode, heat pumps maintain cool, comfortable temperatures while reducing humidity levels inside your home. Here’s how:
- Warm air from the inside of your house is pulled into duct-work by a motorized fan.
- A compressor circulates refrigerant between the indoor evaporator and outdoor condensing units.
- The warm air indoor air then travels to the air handler while refrigerant is pumped from the exterior condenser coil to the interior evaporator coil. The refrigerant absorbs the heat as it passes over the indoor air.
- This cooled and dehumidified air is then pushed through connecting indoor ducts to air vents throughout the home, lowering the interior temperature.
- The refrigeration cycle continues again, providing a consistent method to keep you cool.
Heat Pump in Heating Mode
For many years, heat pumps were reserved for locations that typically experience milder winters. However, advanced technology has enabled these systems to be used in areas with extended periods of cold temperatures. Here’s how:
- A heat pump can switches to heat mode by reversing the refrigeration cycle, making the outside coil function as the evaporator and the indoor coil as the condenser.
- The refrigerant flows through a closed system of refrigeration lines between the outdoor and the indoor unit.
- Although outdoor temperatures are cold, enough heat energy is absorbed from the outside air by the condenser coil and release inside by the evaporator coil.
- Air from the inside of your house is pulled into duct-work by a motorized fan.
- The refrigerant is pumped from the interior coil to the exterior coil, where it absorbs the heat from the air.
- This warmed air is then pushed through connecting ducts to air vents throughout the home, increasing the interior temperature.
- The refrigeration cycle continues again, providing a consistent method to keep you warm.
