Integrity Energy Systems - Heat Pump Installation and Replacement in Seattle, WA

If you, like a growing number of consumers today, are concerned with the environmental impact that heating and cooling your home has, you may want to consider the installation of a heat pump at your Seattle, WA home. Heat pumps can provide your home with both the heating and cooling power necessary to keep you comfortable year round. That may sound like nothing new, but the real selling point with heat pumps is how efficiently they manage to do this. A heat pump, paired with the expertise that you get with an installation by Integrity Energy Systems, is capable of greatly reducing the amount of energy used when heating and cooling your home, resulting in lower utility costs and a more eco–friendly performance. If these are priorities for you, a heat pump may be the solution you’ve been looking for.

How Do Heat Pumps Work: The Heat Transfer Principle

What makes heat pumps so efficient? The way in which they heat and cool your home differs greatly in one basic concept from other, more traditional heaters and air conditioners. Where a boiler, furnace or central air conditioner consumes a fuel source – be it wood, natural gas, propane or electricity – in order to create energy, heat pumps make use of energy that already exists and would otherwise go to waste. Drawing heat from the air, ground or a water source on your property, a heat pump system will transfer that heat to the pump itself, where it is then used to heat your home. When temperatures are warmer the heat pump’s operation can easily be reversed, allowing it to draw heat out of your home and transfer it to the air, ground or water outside. A very small amount of electricity is used in this heat transfer process, and all the rest relies on the green, sustainable energy that is stored all around us.

Types of Heat Pumps

There are a few different types of basic heat pumps. They differ in the source from which they draw their energy, but the operation of each is largely the same, dependent upon the transfer of ambient heat into or out of your home. Geothermal heat pumps use a loop system, which can be either opened or closed and installed vertically or horizontally, to draw heat from the ground or a water source on your property. Air source heat pumps draw heat from the air. Geothermal heat pumps are a little more versatile in terms of the climates they perform best in, as the temperature below the ground or underwater is more constant than that of the air. Not all properties are appropriate for geothermal systems, though, whereas air source heat pumps can be used just about anywhere, either as a heating and cooling system of their own or as a supplement for an existing heating system.
