Heat Pumps

A heat pump is the most cost effective way to heat and cool your home. It's a central air conditioning system that also works in reverse to provide central heating.

During the summer a heat pump takes the air in your home, makes it cool and dry, then recirculates it. In the winter a heat pump pulls heat from air outside, (or from underground water, or the earth itself) and pumps it indoors. Believe it or not, winter air actually contains heat you can use.

Heat pumps also deliver consistently even airflows, as opposed to hot blasts of air, for more comfort.
