What exactly is a heat pump?
A heat pump starts out as an air-conditioner. A few more components are added to allow the unit to not only cool your home in the summer, but heat your home in the winter. With a heat pump, in the winter, outside air is actually cooled (heat is removed from the air) and the heat is transferred inside (heat is rejected from the air.) That’s just the opposite of the way your home is air conditioned in the summer. It’s much cheaper to transfer heat than it is to create heat by burning gas or using electric resistance heating elements. Up to 4 times cheaper!
