The Heat Pump

Instead of having a heater and an air conditioner sit idle for most of the year, you could have a heat pump installed.

For climates with moderate heating and cooling needs, heat pumps offer an energy-efficient alternative to furnaces and air conditioners. Like your refrigerator, heat pumps use electricity to move heat from a cool space into a warm space, making the cool space cooler and the warm space warmer.

The efficiency of most air-source heat pumps as a heat source drops dramatically at low temperatures, generally making them unsuitable for cold climates, although there are systems that can overcome that problem.

In milder climates, a heat pump can produce as much as 4 times the energy that it consumes by its ability to move air from the outside to inside and vice versa.If you are interested in finding out more, visit the U.S. Dept of Energy and talk to a reputable installation company.
