Heat Pumps, the Alternative to Standard Heating & Cooling
Today, heat pumps are often more cost effective than traditional heating and cooling systems.
- Instead of burning fuel, heat pumps are a type of thermal heat transfer system. Rather than generating heat, they extract heat from the environment and move it around, heating your home in winter and cooling it in summer.
- Heat pumps use a small amount of energy to transfer hot or cold air to a space, using the same general technology as refrigerators, freezers, or room sized air conditioners. For heating, heat pumps can be three to four times more efficient than traditional systems.
It may sound like magic, but the science is well-established and heat pumps are able to pull heat, even from a winter outdoor environment, to keep your home warm and toasty on the coldest of days!
