How Heat Pumps Serve Sarasota & Manatee County Homes
Heat pumps have two main components: an outdoor unit, or air handler, and an indoor unit. Refrigerant cycles throughout the system while absorbing, then releasing heat into your home. Rather than generating heat, the pump simply extracts heat from the outside air, even if it’s cool, and transfers it into your home. Despite the name, heat pumps can also run in reverse, so when the smoldering Florida heat rears its ugly head, your pump will extract heat from your indoor air and deliver it outside.

Advantages of Heat Pumps
- Efficiency: Heat pumps extract already existing heat from the air that circulates through it, rather than change the air’s temperature itself.
- Dual Function: A single unit can provide both heating and cooling services.
- Lifespan: Heat pumps can provide up to 15 years of reliable service.
- Cost-Effective: Because heat pumps do not rely on combustion, they do not use as much energy as a typical heating system. In fact, heat pumps can save you up to $1,400 per year on your energy bills!
- Dehumidify: When another muggy Florida summer rolls around, a heat pump will not only provide relief from sweltering temperatures but will also automatically dehumidify your home as it transports heat outside.
Heat Pumps vs Furnaces
Unlike a furnace, a heat pump uses electricity rather than combustion to transfer heat from the outdoors to your home or vice versa. This saves energy, as the pump doesn’t need to burn fuel in order to operate. Additionally, heat pumps are quieter and smaller than an average furnace, and do not pose a risk of carbon monoxide poisoning should something go awry.
