In the heating system, the outer coil takes heat from the cold air and creates vapor. Heated vapor blows through the air ducts. There are different types of heat pump systems:
Air Source Heat Pump System
The air source heat pump system is the most common type of heat pump. These pumps transfer heat between the home and the outdoors. It also works by dehumidifying when it cools the air. However, there is a disadvantage. In extreme winter temperatures, its coil may freeze.
Ductless Heat Pump
Ductless mini-split system heat pumps make good add-ons to homes with a non-ducted heating system. It requires only a small space conditioning system. A ductless system is very easy to install rather than others. Its main disadvantage is its flexibility for zoning, cooling, and heating an individual room. The number of indoor air handling units depends on how much heating or cooling is needed for residential purposes or buildings.
Geothermal Heat Pump
A geothermal heat pump uses the water or ground for a heat source in place of air. It is very expensive to install, but geothermal heat pumps are very beneficial due to their stable temperatures of ground and water. They can also work efficiently in extremely cold weather.
Absorption Heat Pump
Absorption heat pumps work with the help of natural gas, solar-heated water, also known as gas-fired heat pumps. Absorption cools itself on the same principles. These are not reversible and cannot work as a heat source. In it, the evaporated ammonia is not pumped up under pressure in a compressor but is instead absorbed into the water. Its efficiency of air-source absorption and the heat pump is indicated by their coefficient of performance.
