Different Types Of Heat Pumps

Heat pumps are used for transferring thermal energy from the outside of a residence to the inside to make the area warmer if it is too cold inside. Heat pumps can also be used to do the exact opposite of this: to transfer heat from inside to outside to make the inside cooler.

Depending on the purpose that needs to be fulfilled by the heat pumps, there are some common types of heat pumps that we see on a regular basis. In this article, we are going to be discussing some of them.

  • Ductless Heat Pump: It is also called a mini-split heat pump. These pumps are easy to install, flexible to use and also very energy efficient as well. These heat pumps don't require a lot of complex vents or ducts to be functioning properly. Because of this fact, ductless heat pumps are easier to install and also take a lot less trouble to be repaired once there is a malfunction.
  • Exhaust Air Heat Pump: This kind of air heat pump extracts heat from exhaust air. Although, setting them up near an exhaust system is very important for it to be functioning properly.
  • Underwater Heat Pump: These types of heat pumps utilize water sources to be working as a medium for heat exchange. In this case, the water source has to be nearby of it.
  • Underground Heat Pump: These heat pumps are also known as geothermal heat pumps. By using the heat that is stored under the ground, these pumps make sure that the air temperature is kept under control and in a state where everything is in a healthy state for everyone.
  • Hybrid Heat Pump: These heat pumps are different than the other heat pumps because they use two different types of energy to heat up your property. They combine fossil fuels with renewable energy to get the job done for you.
