Have you heard of heat pumps? If not, our mascot Moose is so happy that you dropped in today! Heat pumps aren’t new technology, but they’ve started to explode in popularity as HVAC solutions great for homes and businesses.
Heat pumps are electrically powered refrigerant-based systems similar in to air conditioners. The biggest difference between heat pumps and ACs is that where ACs can only use refrigerant to move heat out of homes, heat pumps can change the direction they work so they can both move heat out of homes and move it into them. That means a heat pump is both a heater and an air conditioner in one.
