What is a heat pump?
A heat pump is a device that moves heat from one location to another mechanically. A heat pump can keep your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
Air-Source Heat Pumps
An air-source heat pump pulls its heat indoors from the outdoor air in the winter and from the indoor air in the summer. An air-source heat pump can provide efficient heating and cooling for your home, particularly if you live in a warm climate. When properly installed, an air-source heat pump can deliver one-and-a-half to three times more heat energy to a home compared to the electrical energy it consumes. This is possible because a heat pump moves heat rather than converting it from fuel.
Ground-Source Heat Pumps
Also known as a geothermal heat pump, a ground-source heat pump extracts heat from the indoor air when it's hot outside, but when it's cold outside, it draws heat into a home from the ground. A ground-source heat pump system is a central heating and/or air conditioning system that actively pumps heat to or from the shallow ground. It uses the earth as a source of heat in the winter and a coolant in the summer. This design takes advantage of moderate temperatures in the shallow ground to boost energy efficiency and reduce operational costs.
Absorption Heat Pumps
Absorption heat pumps are air-source heat pumps driven not by electricity, but by a heat source such as natural gas, propane, solar-heated water, or geothermal-heated water.
