Frequently Asked Heat Pump Questions

What is the benefit of using a heat pump?

A heat pump provides very energy efficient heating and cooling for your home, especially in our moderate Seattle climate. When properly installed, an air-source heat pump can deliver up to 3 times more heat to a home than the electricity it consumes. (If you translated that to a gas furnace, that would be an AFUE of 300%). How can this be? A heat pump moves heat rather than converting it from a fuel like a gas furnace does. It uses a small amount of electricity to run. So it’s very energy efficient.

How does a heat pump make heat?

Heat pumps transfer heat from one area (a source) to a  different area. They are able either to cool or to heat, based  on the positioning of a reversing valve. Generally, they transfer heat from the air, which is why they are also called air source heat pumps. Unlike fossil fuels, air is free, which is why it is so energy efficient. While you might think it’s cool outside, your heat pump can find the residual heat in the air down to about freezing, and bring it into your home. Once it gets too cold outside, you will need a backup heat source such as an electric or gas furnace. Heat pumps work by expanding and compressing refrigerant, which creates an exchange of energy.  The heat pump has an outdoor coil, refrigerant, a compressor and an indoor coil.

How does a heat pump cool the house?

The heat pump essentially reverses it’s heating process. Similar to a refrigerator, the heat pump refrigerant absorbs heat and creates condensation outside of the coil. A fan  pushes that super cool air into the ducts.

Are there utility rebates available for heat pumps?

Yes, there are heat pump utility rebates up to $1500. Most utilities plan to reduce rebates for air source heat pumps in 2015, except on the highest efficiency inverter driven air source heat pumps. Stay up to date on rebates here: Utility Rebates Available

What is the benefit of the Evolution Connex Control Thermostat in layman’s terms?

When we hear that a communicating control thermostat does logarithmic calculations to optimize system components, well some of us just don’t get that technical.

This is the brain in your heating and cooling system.  Just like the human brain, lots of sensory information comes in and it coordinates your action. For example, you see a rock coming at your head and you duck to avoid it. Likewise, the Connex Control “communicates” both in and out between itself and your heat pump system. It takes in indoor and outdoor temperature, system static, energy use, fan speeds, temperature settings and other things, and deploys the system components to run in a way to maximize your comfort and lower energy costs.

So what does it do with the inputs? This thermostat is not just turning the system on and off, it’s constantly listening, adjusting and optimizing. Another way to think about its action is like that of an orchestra conductor. The maestro hears each instrument and signals each to start or stop, change tempo, volume and more to create the perfect sound and flow of the music. When you have a heat pump and a furnace or air handler, there are lots of components to optimize and you benefit most from having this amazing control.

What does HSPF and SEER mean in relation to heat pumps?

How efficient is your air source heat pump? Heat Pump efficiency is show by a measure called the heating season performance factor (HSPF). This is a calculation made from: the total space heating required during the heating season, expressed in Btus (British Thermal Units), divided by the total electrical energy consumed by the heat pump system during the same season, expressed in watt-hours. It’s basically the ratio of heat out to electricity in. The HSPF includes the efficiency of all of the elements in the heat pump and the top efficient models, rated Most Efficient by EnergyStar will have an HSPF of 8-10. Since heat pumps also provide cooling you will want to also know about the cooling energy efficiency of the unit. The SEER or seasonal energy efficiency ratio is also a rating used for heat pumps. It is total BTUs of heat removed from the conditioned space during the annual cooling season, divided by the total electrical energy consumed by the heat pump during the same season, expressed in watt-hours. So, how much cooling it does relative to the electricity needed to run it.
