When you read the words, “heat pump,” you probably imagine something made for heating up your house during the cold winter season. But, a heat pump is not just for winter. It’s for the entire year.
During the winter, a heat pump brings heat from the air and helps it flow through your air ducts, warming your house. During the summer, it takes the heat from inside your house and releases it outside, cooling your home. So in effect, a heat pump helps airflow all the time and makes your home energy efficient. It functions much in the same way that an air conditioner does.
However, a benefit of using a heat pump is that you don’t have to install separate heating and cooling systems; heat pumps roll that into one. They also transfer heat instead of burning fuel to create it, saving energy.
In addition, heat pumps dehumidify indoor air as it cools and produce smaller temperature swings, so you’re not hot one minute and cold the next.
And the fact that they can be used year-round makes them cost effective and can lower your heating and cooling costs.
