Heat pumps can act like a heater in the winter and an air conditioner in the summer, helping you enjoy year-round indoor comfort and significant energy savings. Heat pumps use a small amount of electricity to draw heat out of the air and into your home in the winter. Then, during hot summer months, the heat pump pulls cool air from the air outside and pumps it inside your home.
Heat pumps are better for the environment because they do not directly burn fossil fuels to create heat. Gas or fuel oil used for heating, hot water and cooking makes up more than 10% of carbon emissions in the U.S. – with heating being the largest direct use of fossil fuels in buildings.
In contrast, an air-source heat pump can provide up to three times more heat than the electricity it consumes. That efficiency, combined with ongoing grid-wide improvements to greener energy sources, mean that over the life of your heat pump, your carbon footprint will be much lower than that of a traditional furnace.
Heat pumps work by moving air from one place to another: in the winter, they take the warmth out of outside air and pump it inside, and then reverse the process in the summer. That process alone saves your home on energy use, which in turn benefits your monthly energy bills.
Heat pumps can provide quiet operation and tend to be less noisy compared to traditional AC or furnace systems
