Operating much like an air conditioning unit, a heat pump can effectively
move heat from one area to another using little energy. Heat pumps pull
heat out of the air or ground to warm a home or office and can be reversed
to cool them down. Heat pumps are more efficient than standard heating
ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) units since they don't need
to burn fuel to create heat but simply transfers it.
FACTS: USING ELECTRICITY AS ITS ENERGY SOURCE HEAT PUMPS ARE USED EITHER THE
HEATING OR COOLING OF YOUR HOME TRANSFERRING HEAT BETWEEN TWO RESERVOIRS.
IN THE WARMER MONTHS,THE HEAT PUMP ACTS LIKE AN AIR CONDITIONER, REMOVING
HEAT FROM THE AIR INSIDE YOUR HOME AND TRANSFERRING IT OUTSIDE.
DURING COLDER MONTHS HEAT FROM OUTDOORS AIR IS EXTRACTED AND TRANSFERRED
TO THE INTERIOR OF YOUR HOME. BELIEVE IT OR NOT, EVEN A 32 DEGREE FAHRENHEIT
DAY PRODUCES ENOUGH HEAT TO WARM A HOME VIA A HEAT PUMP.
