What Does a Heat Pump Do?

All Points HeatingA heat pump is a safe, cost-effective and energy efficient option for heating and/or cooling your home, ideal for moderate climates such as the Pacific Northwest. But what does it really do?
How Does a Heat Pump Work?

In short, a heat pump transfers warm air from one place to another. During winter, the any warmth in outside air is transferred from outside to inside your home. In summer, the transfer reverses, expelling warm air from inside the house to the outside. Heat pumps are made of two components, an outdoor ‘heat pump’ unit, and an indoor ‘air handler’ unit.

The Benefits of a Heat Pump

A heat pump is safer than a furnace because it’s flameless, removing fire and carbon monoxide poisoning risks. They’re also extremely energy efficient, creating nearly twice the energy in heat from the energy used, making them a ‘green’ technology. They also act as excellent air filtration and purifiers, removing harmful allergens and toxins from the air.
