Are you looking for a way to improve your home’s heating and cooling comfort without breaking the bank? A heat pump may be exactly what you need. But what are heat pumps, and how do they work?

Although there are several types of heat pumps, they all essentially work the same way. Heat pumps transfer heat between two locations in order to increase the efficiency of your home’s heating and cooling system. When your home is too cold, your heat pump can bring heat into the home to supplement your heating system. Some heat pumps, know as two-stage heat pumps, can also help you air conditioning system by extracting heat from inside your home and moving it outdoors.

Heat pumps work on the same basic principle as your home’s air conditioning system, but while air conditioners cool the air inside your home, heat pumps transfer heat out of your home. Air source heat pumps, like the Infinity 19 Heat Pump, use a fan to expel heat collected in the refrigerant away from your home. Geothermal heat pump systems use refrigerant coils in the ground to collect and release heat into the earth.
