A heat pump is an efficient form of electrically based heating and cooling. Unlike other heating and cooling systems, which convert fuel or electricity directly into heat, a heat pump moves heat from one place to another, in the same manner as an air conditioner.
Even at relatively cold temperatures, the heat pump can extract heat from outside air (air source heat pump) or from the ground or ground water (ground source heat pump) to heat your home, though efficiencies diminish as temperatures cool. During warm summer days it will function in reverse and provide cooling for your home.
