You are currently viewing How does a heat pump cool and heat your home?

“Heat pumps are a type of heating and cooling system for your home that uses available resources, like water and air, to regulate the temperatures in your home. It is like an air conditioner, but it has a built-in heating system, as well. It is an outdoor system that is installed outside the exterior of your home.

Using electricity and refrigerant, a heat pump is able to turn cold air into hot air during the winter, and it can make hot air cold during the summer. It does this by redistributing the heat in the air or ground and heating it or cooling it with refrigerant as needed.”
