Can a Heat Pump be Used for Cooling?
Most modern air conditioning systems are actually air to air heat pumps, providing year round temperature control. Whilst the process outlined above keeps you warm in winter, come the summer months it can simply be reversed to circulate cooled air throughout your property.
An increasing number of manufacturers, like Daiken for example, have also introduced air to water heat pumps that are compatible with reversible indoor units, so you can benefit from energy efficient central heating, hot water, and air conditioning with a single system upgrade.
If you’re considering a switch to an air source heat pump, there’s a lot of things you need to factor in, such as the size and layout of your property, how well insulated it is, and the outdoor space you have for the external unit.
