Heat Pumps

A VERSATILE HEATING AND COOLING SYSTEM.

Heating, cooling and humidity control – a heat pump does it all. Except, perhaps, a name that does their versatility justice. Heat pumps look and function the same as air conditioners for cooling, but in cool months when heat is called for, they reverse operation to provide warmth for your home. If you live in a colder environment, electric heat pumps are great in combination with your oil or gas furnace as a Hybrid Heat® solution, which can improve energy efficiency and result in significant savings on your overall heating costs.

What Does a Heat Pump Do?

Wondering, what is a heat pump? You’re not alone – it’s a common question. An air source electric heat pump is a versatile heating and cooling system that utilizes an air handler to move heat from one place to another. In the summer, a heat pump system moves heat from inside your house to an outdoor unit, efficiently cooling your home. In the winter months, a heat pump reverses the process, drawing heat from outside air (yes, even when it is cold outside there is heat in the air) and releasing it inside your home.

The Difference Between a Heat Pump and Air Conditioner

A heat pump is an alternative to an air conditioner. As cooling systems, an air conditioner and a heat pump system are very similar, drawing heat from the air inside your home and releasing it through an outdoor unit. But, unlike an air conditioner, a heat pump can reverse the process, heating your home by collecting heat from seemingly-cold outside air and releasing it inside.
