How do heat pumps work?

Heat pumps offer an energy-efficient alternative to furnaces and air conditioners for all climates. Like your refrigerator, heat pumps use electricity to transfer heat from a cool space to a warm space, making the cool space cooler and the warm space warmer. During the heating season, heat pumps move heat from the cool outdoors into your warm house.  During the cooling season, heat pumps move heat from your house into the outdoors. Because they transfer heat rather than generate heat, heat pumps can efficiently provide comfortable temperatures for your home. Because heat pumps are so efficient and versatile many people will favor them over the traditional air conditioner and furnace combination.

It is important to schedule seasonal maintenance on your heat pump to ensure that it is running efficiently, especially if you have it running all year round.
