Heat Pump Versatility
Heat Pumps have the distinct ability to be either a heat source, or an air conditioner that controls the comfort of your home.
By using whatever heat is already being generated by a source, a heat pump has very little work to do, driving down the typical cost to condition a space.
How A Heat Pump System Works
Heat Pumps offer an energy-efficient method for either heating your home during the colder months, or cooling your house down during the warmer months. Heat pumps don’t actually generate heat like most other heating methods, instead they move heat from one area to another. Because they move heat, heat pump systems can heat or cool a space at a much lower cost than methods that need to generate heat.
The most common type of heat pump system is an air-source heat pump which transfers heat between your house and the outside air. Even when the outside temperature seems too cold, heat energy is still present in the air. A heat pump is able to extract that energy and transfer it inside. During warmer months when you want to cool a space down, a heat pump can reverse the direction and transfer the heat outside, acting as an air conditioner.
Don’t have ductwork? No Problem…
There is also a ductless version available for homes without existing ductwork, called a mini-split heat pump.
