Question: What is a Heat Pump?
Answer: A heat pump is a refrigeration system. A refrigerator moves heat from inside the box to the outside. A heat pump has the ability to pump heat into a house from the outside (heating cycle) and it has the ability to pump heat out of a house (cooling cycle). The reason why a heat pump that is sized and installed by a qualified technician works so efficiently is that it does not create the heat. It simply moves heat from one place to another which takes much less energy. For a more in depth discussion on how heat pumps work please visit my blog at www.tempriteclimatesolutions.com
