What is a heat pump?

A heat pump is a device used for heating and cooling spaces by transferring heat from one location to another. It operates on the principle of moving heat rather than generating it directly, making it an energy-efficient way to heat or cool your home.

In heating mode, a heat pump extracts heat from the outside air, ground, or water source (depending on the type of heat pump) and transfers it into your home to provide warmth. In cooling mode, it functions similarly to an air conditioner, removing heat from the indoor air and transferring it outside, thus cooling the indoor space.

Heat pumps come in various types, including air source heat pumps, ground source (geothermal) heat pumps, and water source heat pumps. They can be used in residential, commercial, and industrial settings, offering both heating and cooling capabilities in a single unit. Additionally, heat pumps are known for their environmental benefits, as they can be powered by electricity generated from renewable sources, reducing reliance on fossil fuels for heating and cooling needs.
