Heat Pumps —The Green Way to Heat

February 01, 2023

The heat pump has become the system of choice for green, sustainable indoor comfort. A heat pump provides heat to your home similar to a furnace, but without burning fuel. Instead of heating the air, heat pumps move heat from one place to another just like your refrigerator or air conditioner. The difference is your fridge and AC unit can only move heat in one direction. A heat pump works both ways; the same appliance can heat in the winter and cool in the summer.

Even when it’s freezing outside, heat pumps are still able to capture heat and transfer it to an indoor space. This creates a very efficient heating and cooling solution that transfers three times more energy than it consumes. Lower operating costs, no carbon emissions, and less strain on the power grid make heat pumps a win, win, win!
