Heat Pumps in Cherry Hill, NJ
For many years, the standard central HVAC system for homes consisted of a furnace and air conditioner connected to ductwork. The two share the same blower fan, which sends the heated/cooled air through the ducts. Today, there’s a system that uses ducts but combines the heating and cooling functions into a single unit: the heat pump. Heat pumps offer a number of advantages that have made them increasingly popular for home comfort.

How a Heat Pump System Both Heats and Cools
The secret of how a heat pump operates as both a heating and cooling system is a basic one: it’s a type of air conditioner that can work in reverse when it needs to. Think of a standard AC. When it’s running, what is sent out of the outside unit? Heated air. This is air that the refrigerant has absorbed from indoors and is exhausting to the outside. Now think of "turning around" the AC. What happens? Hot air is now being released into the house.
A heat pump doesn’t physically turn around when it switches modes, of course. It makes the two sets of coils swap the jobs they do by changing the direction of refrigerant flow. It only requires an adjustment to the thermostat to change from one mode to the other.
Benefits of a Heat Pump Installation
Why consider having a heat pump for your home? There are some advantages:
- Two–in–one function: If you plan to replace your heater and air conditioner, you can have both taken care of at once with a single new system that does the job of both.
- Energy efficiency: A heat pump is more energy efficient in its heating mode than other electrically powered heaters. The heat pump doesn’t generate heat, it only moves it—and this requires less electricity.
- Safety: If you don’t want to use a natural gas–powered furnace for your home, a heat pump is a safer alternative.
