What Is a Heat Pump & How Does It Work?
Heat pumps consist of both an indoor and outdoor unit. Air source heat pumps extract heat from the air outside of your Atlanta home, while ground source heat pumps pull it from the ground beneath your home.
When cooling your home, liquid refrigerant is passed through the indoor coil, where it absorbs the heat energy from your home. Here, the refrigerant heats and evaporates. Then, it is circulated through to a compressor, which pressurizes the heated coolant gas before being pushed through to the outdoor unit.
Once outside, the fan blows outside air over the cools. The gas condenses before recirculating the coolant through the system again. When heating your home, this process is reversed.

Frequently Asked Questions About Heat Pumps
Will heat pumps keep my home warm in winter?
Yes, they will keep your home warm. However, they will lose efficiency when the weather drops below roughly 40 degrees. Some high-efficiency systems can provide sufficient heat down to around minus 15 degrees, which is far cooler than it ever gets in Atlanta.
Are heat pumps more efficient than furnaces?
Both are exceptional heating options, but heat pumps will provide a more steady, stable heat, which can make your home feel more comfortable.
Are heat pumps a green heating and cooling option?
Absolutely! They will significantly reduce your carbon footprint and help keep our regional environment clean and healthy.
Should I have a furnace installed to supplement my heat pump?
It rarely gets too cold for a heat pump to provide effective heating in Atlanta. However, it’s not difficult to install a gas or electric furnace as a backup system if you are concerned.
Are there rebates and tax credits available for heat pump installation?
It’s possible. Our NATE-certified technicians and customer support staff can help you understand which rebates and tax credits are currently available for homeowners in Atlanta.
