Residential Geothermal Heat Pumps

A geothermal heat pump functions like an air source heat pump, by using high-pressure refrigerant to capture and move heat between indoors and out. Unlike the air to water systems, geothermal systems transfer heat through pipes buried in the ground.
SPRSUN residential geothermal heat pumps, including water source and ground source, provide clean, quiet heating and cooling while cutting domestic utility bills by up to 70 percent. They are twice as efficient as the conventional air conditioners and almost 50 percent more efficient than gas furnaces.

  • Can A Heat Pump Work with Radiators to Cool Home?

    Yes. You can use heat pumps with radiators. If you have a big home, combining the two heating systems is more effective than using radiators or even the heat pumps. However, you will need to use more oversized radiators than regular ones if you want to reap more benefits.
    You could still use them with standard radiators, but you will have to ensure that you reduce your home's heat loss to a minimum level. You could talk to a certified professional that'll inspect your home and advise you accordingly. However, you may also have to consider the radiators' energy consumption.
  • How Does A Heat Pump Cool Your Home?

    The process through which heat pumps cool your home is the reverse of how they warm your home. Some of the heat pumps use condenser and evaporator coils with the refrigerants and are connected between outdoor and indoor units respectively.
    As air is pulled into the unit and passes over the condenser coils, it cools down while the refrigerant warms up at the same time. The cool air is pumped into your home while the warm refrigerant is pumped into the condenser coils as well, where the compressor cools it down before being pumped back into the home's duct system.
  • What Size Heat Pump Do I Need for My Home?

    There are eight factors that you'll need to consider before purchasing your heat pump for home heating. However, we can simplify these factors into one general rule of thumb.
    For instance, you'll need to install one tone air condition capacity for every 500ft. to 600ft. of the conditioned floor. Most heat pump sizes are determined by BTUs (British Thermal Units), and one ton equals 12.000 BTU/h or 3.5 kW.
    Thus, if you have a 1000 sq. ft. home, then you'll need a 30000 BTU/h heat pump, a 2.5-ton heat pump, or an 8.79 kW heat pump. You could get the 7.6-11KW Energy Efficient Air Source Heat Pump for House Heating and Cooling with a 220V to 240V Power supply.
  • Can You Install a Heat Pump in an Existing Home?

    Heat pump heating systems for homes can be installed in most of the homes; however, you will need to take some factors into considerations before deciding to install one in your home. The most crucial factor you will need to consider is insulation.
    If you want your heat pump to function more effectively and efficiently, then you will have to ensure that your home is adequately insulated so that you won't have to lose any heat to the nearby surroundings. You'll have to do a complete home survey by a competent professional to determine if your home is suitable for installing a heat pump.
  • Does Heat Pump Increase Home Value?

    Not only do household heat pumps offer an energy-efficient solution to your home's heating demands, but they also increase your home’s value. Domestic central heating pumps last for a long time, and as such, they provide a reliable long-term heating solution for whoever's owns the home.
    Heat pumps need minimal servicing and repairs, and as such, owners are guaranteed long-term, reliable service. They are also a great way of helping keep the world greener since they provide an alternate heating source, which (in some countries) homeowners get paid for. All these factors put together significantly improve your home's value to a great extent.

  • How Does A Residential Heat Pump Work?

    Residential heat pumps work in the same way regular heat pumps do. They transfer heat from the soil, water, or ambient air to other locations like your home's hot water system.
    Heat pump residential systems use some electricity; however, the entire process achieves a 200% to 600% efficiency since the amount of heat produced is significantly higher than consumed.
    Heat collected from outside your home is transferred to a coolant where it's compressed, resulting in a significant increase in temperature. The coolant is transferred to the indoor unit where the air is allowed to pass over it increasing its temperature, warming the residential units.



  • How Does a Split Heat Pump Work?


    A split-system heat pump is a technology that transfers heat from one location to another using a network of pipes, vents, and other components. It functions similarly to a standard central heating system. Instead of a single boiler, the system transfers heat from the outside unit to the inside unit Read More

  • How Often Should A Heat Pump Cycle Turn On And Off?


    Heat pumps are known for their energy efficiency, but if the units cycle on and off too frequently, there might be some internal problems the increase energy consumption and cause the damage of heat pump components. This is a common problem of heat pumps, known as short cycling. When a heat pump short cycles, your unit cannot maintain the desired temperature in either heating or cooling mode, so it turns on and off constantly. Read More

  • How Long Does It Take to Heat Pool Water with a Heat Pump?


    The amount of time it takes to heat a swimming pool with a heat pump depends on a few factors. If it's a smaller swimming pool such as a spa pool, it takes around 45 and 60 minutes. But generally, it heats a pool after about 24 to 72 hours at 20-degrees Fahrenheit. However, it's a critical question Read More

  • Why Now Is the Perfect Time to Invest in An Air Source Heat Pump


    Air source heat pumps are one of the market's most efficient heating and cooling systems. They use the outside air to generate heat and cool air, making them a great option for homes that rely on air conditioning in the summer. Again, they are also an excellent choice when you want to keep warm duri Read More
