Heat pumps provide and all-in-one solution for heating and cooling.
Heat pumps are an increasingly popular option with homeowners looking to save money on their heating and cooling expenses.

Heat pumps typically are either air source or ground source. This means they gather heat from the outside air or ground and pump it into your home while in heating mode. When in cooling mode, they gather the heat inside your home and pump it outside.
Heat pumps work through the use of refrigerant and evaporator coils. For heating, the fan pulls in outside air to warm liquid refrigerant, which absorbs the heat and turns into vapor. This vapor is run through a compressor that further heats the air as it's moved to the heating coils in the air handler, which distribute the warm air in the home.
In cooling mode, the indoor coils are the ones that absorb the heat from inside your home, sending the heat back through the system and outdoors. The air is then replaced by cooler air as the refrigerant moves throughout the system.
Whether or not an air source or ground source heat pump is best for your home depends on your climate, heating and cooling needs, and budget. However, both systems represent the opportunity for significant savings on heating and cooling costs. Benefits of heat pumps include:
