What is a heat pump?

Heat pumps can be a bit confusing due to their name, but they actually take care of both your heating and cooling needs throughout the year. 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 turned around 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.
