4 Heat Pump Components in Gustine, CA, and What They Do

January 23, 2024

Your heat pump in Gustine, CA, is a complex HVAC system made up of multiple components. Each of these parts has a unique role to play. Let’s cover some heat pump components and what they do.

Indoor and Outdoor Coils

During winter, the outdoor coil absorbs heat from the outdoor environment to warm your house. During summer, this coil transfers heat from your house to the surroundings outside.

The indoor coil absorbs heat from the air in your home during summer to cool it. When winter comes, the indoor coil receives heat from the outdoor coil and releases it into the air in your home.

These coils must always be clean to absorb and release heat efficiently. Schedule regular maintenance services to keep these coils in good condition.

Heat Pump Refrigerant

The refrigerant moves heat between the indoor and outdoor coils. During summer, the fluid transfers heat from the indoor coil to the outdoor coil.

When winter comes, the reversing valve changes the direction of flow of the refrigerant. Therefore, the refrigerant starts transferring heat from the outdoor coil to the indoor coil.

Air Filter

As its name suggests, this component filters pollutants from the indoor air before the air goes into the heat pump. By removing these contaminants from the indoor air, the filter allows your home’s occupants to enjoy clean air.

Blower Motor

After your heat pump heats or cools your indoor air, the blower motor rotates the fan blades to help the fan blow the warm or cool air into the ductwork or through an air handler. Then, the air circulates through your living space.

If any of your heat pump’s parts start to fail, the system’s efficiency drops. You can call CEN-CAL AIR Heating and Cooling for professional heating services whenever your heat pump develops problems. Our NATE-certified service technicians always work hard to meet and exceed our clients’ expectations.
