Heat Pumps in Oceanside, CA
Keeping your home cool is a pretty big priority during the summer months, especially in the desert environment of Southern California. Most people rely on centralized air conditioning systems to keep them cool during the hottest months of the year, and that’s a great option for many. However, it’s not the only option available. A heat pump is a great way to keep your home cool, while garnering some advantages that aren’t available to central air conditioning systems.

Heat Pumps vs Air Conditioners
Heat pumps and air conditioners are actually very similar. A heat pump is comprised of two units, one inside and one outside. The two units are connected by a conduit of power and refrigerant lines, allowing the heat pump to move heat between the home and the outside environment. Like air conditioners, heat pumps work by evaporating and condensing refrigerant to move heat from one place to another. The major difference between them is a part called the "reversing valve." The heat pump uses the reversing valve to reverse the flow of refrigerant through the system. This allows it to provide both heating and cooling functions.
Advantages of a Heat Pump
The biggest advantage of the heat pump is that it removes the need for a separate heating system. Not only does this save money on installation costs, but a heat pump is more energy efficient than most heating systems, as well. Heat pumps are essentially air conditioners with a lot of extra features built into them. This is the primary reason why most homeowners decide to invest in them. Within a few years of installing your heat pump, it will have paid itself off in savings.
