The invention of the heat pump created a type of comfort system that could deliver two basic functions in a single package: indoor heating and air conditioning.

How a Heat Pump System Both Heats and Cools
People are often curious about how a heat pump uses the identical operation to work as both a heating and cooling system. It’s actually simple to describe: imagine an air conditioning system that you can reverse whenever you need to. An air conditioner uses refrigerant to transport heat from the inside of a space to exhaust it to the outside. If you reverse the way it runs, it draws heat from the outside of space and brings it inside. That’s the core of how a heat pump operates. A device called the reversing valve changes the direction of refrigerant flow through the system, and the indoor and outdoor coils swap functions, with the outdoor coil absorbing thermal energy from the outdoor air (yes, even in cold weather!) and the indoor coil releasing it.
Should You Consider a Heat Pump Installation?
The biggest benefit of a heat pump installation is one we’ve just talked about: the dual function as a heating and air conditioning system. You’ll have your comfort concerns for the year taken care of with a single installation, which will help you save money as well as save space.
There are other advantages that heat pumps provide. For example, they have superior energy efficiency in heating mode when compared to many other heating systems, such as electrical furnaces and boilers. This is because a heat pump uses electricity to move heat, rather than burning a fuel source (electricity, natural gas, etc.) to create heat. Heat pumps are also safe heating systems, eliminating possible issues from combustion and gas leaks. Their outside cabinets don’t even get warm when they’re working!
