Everything You Should Know About Heat Pumps

A Heat pump is an electrical appliance that transmits heat from one place to another. It transfers thermal energy by circulating a substance known as a refrigerant via a cycle of condensation and evaporation. An example of a heat pump is the refrigerator and another is the air conditioner.

Components of a heat pump

  • The refrigerant: This is the liquid/gaseous portion that circulates through the internal chambers of the heat pump.
  • The reversing valve: This valve controls and monitors the direction of flow of the refrigerant in the heat pump.
  • Coil: A coil is a loop of tubing in which heat transfer occurs.
  • The evaporator: It allows the refrigerant to absorb heat from its environments and then boils it to transform to a low-temperature vapour.
  • The compressor: It squeezes the gas molecules of the refrigerant together.
  • The condenser: This allows the refrigerant to generate heat to its environments and turns it into liquid.
  • The expansion device: It reduces the pressure established by the compressor.
  • The plenum: It is an air compartment.
