What is a heat pump?

A heat pump is a device that moves heat from an initial source to a destination called a “heat sink”. In layman’s terms, heat pumps absorb heat from a cold space and release it to a warmer one. Therefore, a heat pump can actually be used for cooling, keeping a device (or a space) and its contents cold. When a heat pump is used for heating, it works in the opposite direction, by releasing heat into the conditioned space rather than the surrounding environment.

Heat pumps are highly recommended for heating homes, because they are three or more times more efficient that electrical heaters. If you want to keep your home warm and save money on your power bill, installing a heat pump is an excellent decision.
