How does your A/C Mini split heat pump work?
Investing in home comfort with the purchase of a heat pump is a great choice for anyone living in the Lower Mainland and Vancouver area. A heat pump is perfectly capable of withstanding the year-round moderate temperatures of Vancouver, BC. Heat Pumps from Milani will give you all-year performance and comfort by heating or cooling your home according to your needs. They're the perfect solution to complete comfort in the home.
A heat pump system is able to allow heat to be carried from a lower to a higher temperature level inverting natural heat flow which is from higher to lower temperature. The feature that makes heat pumps so well-suited to the Vancouver climate is their ability to move heat from outside to your home's interior on demand. When you want to cool your home, the heat pump collects the heat from inside your home and moves it outside. This process is carried out by a little device called a reversing valve that switches the cycle back and forth. Heaters and air conditioners are single-function units, but a heat pump's reversing valve allows it to act like two units in one convenient package.
- The compressor collects heat from the outside air and transfers it to the mini splits inside your home. It’s perfect for BC cold winter days.
- The indoor unit distributes the heat throughout your home or business.
- In the summer the system works in reverse, transferring heat out of your home, cooling your living or work space.
