Heat pumps are units that simply uses smaller amounts of required energy to move heat from one location to another. The heat pump pulls heat out of the air or ground and transfers it to where it is needed, your home. Heat pumps are somewhat unique, because they actually can do the work of both a furnace and air conditioner.
Today’s heat pumps actually can be very efficient under the proper conditions, since they provide an even level of heating throughout the home and usually are turning on and off less than conventional forced air furnaces.
The heat pump might not be the perfect heating solution for every home, but ideal for many, including summer homes and homes with existing backup hearting sources already in place.
