I tend to be one of those people who thrives on keeping things right in front of me. There was a time in my life where I tried to do it all and it almost ended in disaster. It took something like that for me to realize that, for me, life is much more enjoyable when I keep things simple. And that has given me a perspective of great appreciation for the even keel and uncomplicated. This is one of the many reasons that I love the HVAC equipment that I have. Like most people in this region, my heating and cooling equipment is a heat pump. While the heat pump is a fairly straight forward machine, it’s also amazingly versatile. Versatile adds to simplicity for me. I love the fact that this heater and air conditioner use the same process to do both the heating and cooling in my home. Now, that is certainly the straightforward type of simple that I am looking for. The heat pump is named concisely as it actually does pump heat in a way. It uses refrigerant to extract heat energy and move it. When the air conditioning is on cooling your house, the heat pump is moving the warm air energy outside. That leaves room for the cooler air to follow. It takes some complicated physics and mechanics to make it all work. And yet, the idea is just so simple. What’s even better is the fact that when it’s time to get the heater on, the heat pump simply reverses the process. The heat pump can extract heat energy and bring it in the house for heating. Amazingly simple that heat pump.
