//Heat Pump FAQs

You can always contact our team with questions about heat pump installations, upgrades, or repairs. Here are some questions our customers often ask!

How Does a Heat Pump Work?

Unlike traditional heating methods like a furnace or boiler, heat pumps use electricity to keep your home warm. Instead of heating air, heat pumps take heat from outside your home and transfer it to your living space.

Heat pumps consist of 2 units. An outdoor condenser unit and an indoor fan coil unit that disperses this air around your home. Coolant is circulated between these 2 units as the heat is transferred into your home.

Heat pumps do not operate using natural gas or by burning any other fossil fuel. The pump is powered by electricity. Heat pumps can be installed for central air or as a mini-split system.

Can a Heat Pump Cool My Home?

Yes! Contrary to the name, heat pumps can cool air, too. Rather than actually heating or cooling air, heat pumps use compressed refrigerant to redistribute heat either inside or outside your home.

All heat pumps can also act as air conditioners. When heating, a heat pump takes outside warmth and disperses it in your home. When cooling, heat is transferred from your home to the outdoors. That’s what air conditioning does!

So when you upgrade to a heat pump, you’re installing an all-inclusive heating and cooling system for your home.

What Rebates Are There for Heat Pumps?

Both local and state governments and manufacturers are making a push toward cleaner energy. This means there are incentives to upgrade your heating system to a heat pump.

The exact rebates that you qualify for depend on your address and other factors regarding your home and its heating. But our HVAC experts at Cencal will make sure to inform you of ANY rebate programs available for Californians.

Do Heat Pumps Work in Cold Climates?

Heat pumps are the most eco-friendly and energy-efficient way to heat your home. For most climates, it’s lighter on your energy bill to heat with a pump as opposed to a furnace or boiler. But in extreme cold, a heat pump may struggle to keep up.

Many heat pumps are rated to a minimum temperature of 18 degrees. Luckily, the winters in the Central Valley are mild enough that a heat pump can operate effectively. So most residents in California can be assured that a heat pump will keep them warm and cozy all winter long!
