How Heat Pump Systems Work


Facts

Using electricity as its energy source, heat pumps are used for either the heating or cooling of your home by transferring heat between two reservoirs.

In the warmer months, the heat pump acts like an air conditioner, removing heat from the air inside your home and transferring it outside.

During colder months, heat from outdoor air is extracted and transferred to the interior of your home. Believe it or not, even a 32° Fahrenheit day produces enough heat to warm a home using a heat pump.

Benefits


Year-round, energy-efficient indoor comfort for moderate climates
A central heat pump helps maintain comfortable temperatures inside your home and reduces humidity levels year-round. Homes located in regions with severely cold temperatures may either require supplemental heating or be better served with an air conditioner/furnace combination.

Cleaner air
As your heat pump system draws air out of various rooms in the house through return air ducts, the air is pulled through an air filter, which removes airborne particles such as dust and lint. Sophisticated filters may remove microscopic pollutants, as well. The filtered air is then routed to air supply duct-work that carries it back to rooms. Whenever the air conditioner is running, this cycle repeats continually, constantly filtering and cleaning the air in your home.

Quieter operation
Because the compressor-bearing unit of the typical central heat pump system is located outside the home, the indoor noise level from its operation is much lower than that of a free-standing air conditioning unit.

How Central Air Conditioning Systems Work


Facts

The typical central air conditioning system is a split system, with an outdoor air conditioning, or "compressor bearing unit" and an indoor coil, which is usually installed on top of the furnace in the home. Using electricity as its power source, the compressor pumps refrigerant through the system to gather heat and moisture from indoors and remove it from the home.

Heat and moisture are removed from the home when warm air from inside the home is blown over the cooled indoor coil. The heat in the air transfers to the coil, thereby "cooling" the air.

The heat that has transferred to the coil is then "pumped" to the exterior of the home, while the cooled air is pumped back inside, helping to maintain a comfortable indoor temperature.

Benefits

Indoor comfort during warm weather
Central air conditioning helps keep your home cool and reduces humidity levels.

How Geo-Thermal Heat Works


Facts

Wherever you live, the temperature beneath your home remains constant regardless of the season. ClimateMaster® Geothermal Heat Pump Systems harness the stable underground temperature to provide heating, cooling, and hot water at remarkably high efficiencies. So high, in fact, that energy use can be cut by up to 80%. As the world’s largest and most progressive leader in clean, renewable geothermal technology, ClimateMaster leads the way with its award-winning Tranquility Series geothermal heat pumps.

Benefits

Efficiency
Geothermal heat pumps are the most energy-efficient and environmentally friendly HVAC systems systems available.

Tax Credits
Systems are eligible for federal tax credits and state incentives.

Free Hot Water
A geothermal system can be used to provide free hot water.

Environmentally Friendly
Geothermal technology uses a series of sealed piping loops buried in the ground that tap the renewable energy of the earth. The loops create a better heat transfer medium than traditional air source systems. Plus, all ClimateMaster Geothermal heat pumps use Earth Pure® Refrigerant. Earth Pure is a non-ozone depleting refrigerant and has significant advantages over other refrigerants that harm the environment.

No Outdoor Units
Units are placed in a basement, garage or utility room. This helps reduce noise, improves the look of your home and leads to longer system life.

No Fossil Fuel
Improves safety; eliminates service lines, flues and air intakes; no site emissions.

How Central Heating Systems Work


Facts

A furnace works to keep a home warm in the winter and plays a critical part in the operation of an air conditioning system.

Furnaces produce heat through the combustion of natural gas or fuel oil in the furnace's burner. The heat produced from this process then passes through a heat exchanger. Air from your home's return air ducts is blown over the heat exchanger, thus warming the air.

The furnace's blower then blows the warmed air into the duct-work, which carries and disperses the warmed air throughout the home.

During warmer months, the blower inside a furnace continues to circulate return air throughout the home--only this time, the return air has been cooled by being blown over the indoor coil portion of the home's split-system air conditioning system. The condensing coil is typically installed on top of the furnace.

Benefits

Indoor warmth any time it is required.

Energy efficiency
The efficiency of a furnace can be determined by its AFUE – or Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency. The minimum efficiency level for furnaces currently manufactured in the U.S. is 80% AFUE. A rating of "80% AFUE" means that for every dollar you spend heating your home; 80 cents are actually applied to the generation of warmth. Compared to many of the 60% AFUE furnaces in older homes, 80% AFUE furnaces are a significant improvement. However, for enhanced energy efficiency, you may wish to consider a 95+% AFUE furnace, such as Amana's line of 96% AFUE Furnaces.

Cleaner air
As your HVAC system draws air out of various rooms in the house through return air ducts, the air is pulled through an air filter, which removes airborne particles such as dust and lint. Sophisticated filters may remove microscopic pollutants, as well. The filtered air is then routed to air supply duct-work that carries it back to rooms. Whenever the HVAC system is running, this cycle repeats continually, constantly filtering and cleaning the air in your home.

This cleaning process improves with the installation of a variable-speed furnace. Variable-speed furnaces use variable-speed blowers, which shift between several speeds. These furnaces will run longer at a low speed, which causes them to filter the indoor air more frequently.

And remember – because the furnace plays an important role in the operation of the air conditioner, its variable-speed blower helps maintain both a consistent indoor temperature and improved air quality year-round.
