How Do They Work?

Heat pumps work by moving heat from a cool space to a warm space through electricity or gas. During the summer, heat pumps move heat from your house into the outdoors, thus keeping your house cooler.

In the winter, when you experience low temperatures, they move and heat air from the outdoors into your home, making your home comfortable.
