Heat pumps

Have you heard of a heat pump? I am sure, you would have. But, do you know how a heat pump works? Guess, not! A heat pump is a device that absorbs heat from one atmosphere and transfers it to another. Thus, it can help you make your home warm (in winters) and cooler (in summers). The best thing about heat pumps is that they are easy to install and maintain. Thus, they are becoming more and more popular in the country.

There are two kinds of heat pumps:
1. Air to air: This kind of heat pump transfers hot air with the help of indoor fans.
2. Air to water: This kind of heat pump is used to produce hot water.

So, what is it made up of? A heat pump has three main sections: a heat exchanger, a tube (radiator) and powerful compressor. The heat exchanger is responsible for absorbing the heat while the compressor aids in increasing the temperature. The heating tube (radiator) is more or less responsible to transfer the heat. So essentially, the heat is transferred to the liquid, the liquid gets vaporized and the compressor turns the vaporized liquid (gas) back into liquid.
