Heat Pumps Replace Your A/C and Assist Your Heating System
The term heat pump is a bit misleading because this system is dual purpose. Its name simply means that it moves heat where and when it’s needed, using minimal energy. During the winter, the system extracts heat from outdoor air and moves it indoors. In the summer, the process reverses to transfer indoor heat outdoors. It acts exactly like an air conditioner, keeping your home cool and comfortable—and can be a smart alternative to using an A/C.
