A condensing unit heat pump is a heat pump that functions in a two stage process. A vaporizer circulates the air through a system of tubes and coils to generate a hot, moist air flow. The air is then compressed into a hard, condensed liquid. The process heats up the condensed liquid and pushes it through a heating element or blower. When the system is started, the heated liquid flows down the tubing, and the air circulate back to the compressor. The condensed liquid passes through a cooling unit, which gets rid of any excess heat and energy.
In residential homes, they are commonly used as a replacement for the central heating system. In smaller apartments, they are commonly installed under the stairs. A condensing unit heat pump is a better choice than an HVAC unit for smaller spaces, as a heat pump takes up a smaller area than an HVAC unit, making it easier to install and operate. Condensing unit heat pumps are also cheaper to operate than central heat pumps.
With the rising costs of heating fuel, heat pumps can save you money by increasing your savings by adjusting your utility bills every time the temperature changes. Many people have found that by installing a condensing unit heat pump in their home, they have experienced significant savings, especially with winter months. While buying a heat pump may seem like a major investment, with the rising costs of fuel, you may find that having one in your home will help you save money, and save money at the same time.
