Comfort Measure has the heat pump that can transform the way you heat and cool your home. A heat pump system can efficiently warm up and cool down your home on days that do not require the high power of a traditional furnace or air conditioner. With SEER ratings up to 19 and HSPF ratings up to 9.7, these units consume electricity responsibly while providing superior comfort and quiet operation.
Heat Pumps serve as an air conditioner by absorbing heat from indoor air and pumping it outdoors. The units contain an indoor coil which, in turn, contains a very cold liquid refrigerant. As indoor air passes over the indoor coil, the refrigerant-cooled coil absorbs heat from the air and so quickly cools that air. The cooled air cannot hold as much moisture as it did at a higher temperature. The excess moisture condenses on the outside of the coil, resulting in the dehumidification of the air. The cooled, dehumidified air is then forced (by a fan) into the duct system which, in turn, circulates throughout the building.
As the heat is discharged, the vapor is cooled and changes back into a liquid refrigerant. The refrigerant is then pumped back through a liquid line to the indoor coil and the cycle is repeated.
