Heat Pumps

Heat Pumps in Hendersonville, TN

Heat pumps are different from traditional central HVAC systems in a number of ways. While most climate control systems consist of a separate air conditioner and furnace, a heat pump system both effectively heats and cools all within one system for optimal comfort in your Hendersonville, TN home.

While you may need a backup source of heat when temperatures drop to the extreme, the results of a heat pump are well worth the investment. Heat pump systems function as high-efficiency heaters and air conditioners, and the energy savings can be considerable. Call the staff at Covenant Heating and Cooling to learn more about these two-in-one HVAC systems. We are “Dedicated to the Promise of Serving You!”

Is A Heat Pump Installation Right for You?

We know you have many options when it comes to choosing an HVAC unit for your home, whether you are looking to satisfy your cooling or your heating needs. There are a number of benefits to using a heat pump though—primarily its ability to both effectively cool and heat your home.

The way this works is that the heat pump system uses a heat transfer fluid called refrigerant, which moves throughout the system and transfers heat. In the summer, it moves heat from inside your home and expels it outdoors, while in the winter is does the opposite. It works much like a conventional central air conditioner, except that it’s far more efficient for your home.

How Heat Pumps Work

How does this process of heat transfer actually work? Much like a conventional cooling system, the heat pump system removes heat from your home in order for cooler, conditioned air to be returned into your home and provide you with the cooling relief you desire. But what about in the winter?

Heat pumps are equipped with a few additional components that traditional AC systems do not have. A reversing valve is one of these components. This is what allows refrigerant to move in the opposite direction to provide heat in the winter time.

You Need Professional Heat Pump Maintenance

Of course, a heat pump can only work as well as it’s meant to if it is properly cared for. During maintenance under our Covenant Care Plan, our Technicians will fully inspect and clean your system, making adjustments as needed, and noting any repair needs.

Heat pump maintenance is different from traditional air conditioning maintenance in that instead of being performed once a year, it should be done biannually. This is because rather than only being used for half the year while it’s warm outside, heat pumps do twice the work to provide you with comfort all year–round.
