What is a heat pump?

Heat pumps can be a little confusing due to their name, but they actually meet both your heating and cooling needs year-round. When it’s hot outside it works like an air conditioner in that it removes heat from your home, but when it cools off, the process gets reversed and it collects heat from outside and brings it inside. Heat pumps are also very efficient, and may produce up to two or three times more heat than the energy it uses.
