What Is a Heat Pump?

Simply put: Air movement from Point A to Point B.

A heat pump is a device used for either the heating or cooling of a space by transferring hot and cold between two reservoirs.

A heat pump can act like an air conditioner, transferring heat from inside to out, or like a heater, as it transfers exterior heat to the interior. A winter day with a temperature of 32° Fahrenheit still produces enough heat to warm a space when the air is transferred by heat pump.
