Heat Pump info

Hotrod1952February 16, 2013

I will soon be purchasing a Heat Pump (air to air) and I was wondering if anyone can explain how the system cycle accomplishes dehumidification?

When warm, humid air comes in contact with a chilled surface, such as cooling fins, moisture in the air will condense on that surface where it can drip down and then be drained away. This is possible because warm air can hold more water vapor than cooler air, so cooling air to where it is over-saturated will cause the excess to precipitate out.

^^ Which is the same process that occurs in a non-heat pump air conditioner.

I think A1 Plumbing of Baltimore hires folks that either:
A) Can't read, or
B) Are thieves.

You don't get to attempt to steal advertising space on this site. By doing so, I have to assume you are incapable of reading the site TOU or that you don't care. Either way, were I in the Baltimore area, I would not hire a plumber who is either uneducated or dishonest.

You asked.
