Heat pumps are components of the heating system used to warm or cool the air in a home. The term ‘heat’ pump is a little misleading. Actually the pump transfers heat energy from the outside air to heat or transfers heat energy from inside to the outside to cool your home. So heat pumps are more like a “heat transfer device”.The biggest advantage of heat pumps is that they are dual-action performers. With a heat pump, there is no need to install separate systems to heat and cool your home. A heat pump can be used to heat or cool your home. Heat pumps can be used to heat swimming pools, heat hot tubs, and for water heaters.Heat pumps work best in moderate climates that do not experience extreme heat or cold, and they are also energy efficient. If your home or office uses electricity for heating, a heat pump can trim the amount of electricity you use by as much as 30% to 40%.
