If there’s one myth about heat pump HVAC systems that just won’t seem to go away, it’s that heat pumps might be fine to keep your home cool in the summer or warm on a normal fall day, but when the temperatures really drop in the middle of winter on the North Shore and in Seacoast, New Hampshire, heat pumps just can’t cut it for the average home.
That isn’t true, so let’s debunk this myth once and for all, and show you why Mitsubishi Electric cold climate heat pump installation is the perfect solution, even when it’s freezing outside, for your home comfort.
How Do Heat Pumps Work in the Winter?
When the weather is warm and your heat pump is set to its “cool” setting, it works just like an air conditioner or a fridge—absorbing heat from hot indoor air and sending it outside through refrigerant piping. In the winter, when your heat pump is set to heating, this entire process is reversed: a heat pump is able to warm your home by extracting heat from the outdoor air and transferring it inside.
“But how can a heat pump take heat from outdoor air when it’s freezing out?!” you might be asking yourself. Actually, even very cold air contains some heat, and heat pumps are specifically designed to efficiently extract even trace amounts of heat, which they can convert into warm, comfortable indoor air for you and your family.
What’s the Best Mini Split Heat Pump for Cold Weather?
While heat pump technology has improved dramatically over the past 10 years, and all heat pumps have gotten better at efficiently providing heat when it’s cold out, Mitsubishi Electric heat pumps remain the standard-bearer for cold climate mini splits. With their advanced Hyper-Heating technology, these heating systems can continue providing heat to your home even when the outdoor temperatures drop as low as -13° F!
