The Difference Between an Air Conditioner and a Heat Pump
An Air Conditioner and a Heat Pump look almost identical from the outside, and perform similarly for your house while in their cooling stage in the summer, but the difference could help you decide which better suits your living space and which product to invest in!
A Heat pump works by pumping hot air from inside your home to the outside, in order to cool down the interior in the summer. In the winter months, quite the opposite happens. Due to a reversing valve inside the system, heat is pumped from the outside air, into a heating element and into your home. You should consider a heat pump if you need to warm up your house quickly and efficiently and are looking for an electric system instead of natural gas or propane. The only downfall to this is that when it gets to below freezing outside, it will switch to an auxilliary heat source, such as a fan coil in your home, which uses more electricity and will affect your energy bills. Efficiently speaking though, a heat pump will pump more cool and warm air through your house versus an air conditioner.
An Air Conditioner works by pulling warm air out of your home and running it through a condenser charged with refrigerant, and pumps it back into your house to drop the internal temperature. An Air Conditioner cannot pump warm air back into your house, so they are typically paired with natural gas or propane furnace in order to heat your house in the winter. Air Conditioners are also constantly filtering air, which improves indoor air quality and reduces allergens. Like a heat pump, Air Conditioners use a lot of electricity, but only during summer months if you are using a natural gas or propane
furnace during the winter. In turn, this creates a longer lifespan for the system because you are only using it in the summer months and not year round like you would for a heat pump.
While choosing between a Heat Pump or an Air Conditioner, both work amazing, but there are Pros and Cons to both. A similar downfall to both, is energy efficiency. Just like most things, there is always room for improvement. Luckily, Carrier has created both Heat Pumps and Air Conditioners that are filling that void.
The Carrier Infinity Greenspeed
The Greenspeed is available in both a Heat Pump and an Air
Conditioner. It uses Carrier’s most advanced technology yet, to improve efficiency and lower your homes energy bill. It does this by using what is called a “variable-speed compressor” which allows it to literally adapt how much output is produced, based on the needs of your home. With home capacity adjustments between 25 and 100%, it gives your home only the amount of cooling or heating necessary. This allows the system to operate longer at steadier, lower capacities, which ensures incredible energy efficiency and quiet operation.
