Louisville Heat Pumps
Jarboe’s Plumbing, Heating & Cooling knows heat pumps are a great, energy-efficient way to heat and cool your home. Heat pumps have the same lifespan as an air conditioner – furnace combination (about twelve years) when recommended maintenance is followed. Jarboe’s offers heat pump repair, service, and, when necessary, new heat pump installation for Louisville home heating and cooling systems.
How Does a Heat Pump Work?
In size and appearance, a heat pump looks like a central air conditioner. But unlike a central air conditioning system, which only cools a home, a heat pump provides both heating and cooling. Here’s another way to think of it. A heat pump is an air conditioner in the summer and a reverse air conditioner in the winter.
Most central heat pumps are split‐systems, which means they have an indoor unit and an outdoor unit. Some heat pumps are packaged systems, which means they usually have the compressor, condenser, evaporator coil, and fan located outdoors in a single cabinet.
