Williams Air Conditioning offers a complete line of heat pumps, which can both heat and cool your home. They range from 13.0 to 24 SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio), a measure of cooling efficiency for air conditioners and heat pumps. The higher the SEER, the more energy efficient the unit, and HSPF (Heating Seasonal Performance Factor), this rating is used in measuring the heating efficiency of a heat pump. The higher the number the more efficient the heat pump system is. Our heat pumps provide efficient, year round comfort for you and your family.

Heat Pump Basics – The refrigeration system within the heat pump is made up of a compressor and two coils of copper tubing, surrounded by aluminum fins aiding in the transfer of heat. The coils resemble a car radiator. As with refrigerators or an air conditioner, the refrigerant flows through the pipes, back and forth from the outdoor coils. In heating mode, it extracts heat from the outside coils and moves it into the home as it evaporates into gas. The indoor coils transfer heat as it condenses back into a liquid. A reversing valve, located near the compressor, changes the direction in which the refrigerant flows for cooling in the summer or defrosting the outdoor coils in the winter.
Refrigerants – A refrigerant is a compound used in a heat cycle that undergoes a phase change from gas to liquid and back, giving off heat or absorbing it. The main uses of refrigerants are refrigerators (or freezers) and air conditioners. The most widely used refrigerants were major causes of ozone depletion, but since the discovery of the detrimental effects of the pollutants within those refrigerants in the 1980s, these have been phased out worldwide, replaced with ozone-friendly refrigerants.
