Heat Pumps

Financing available through Energy Right Solutions for the Home Heat Pump program

A heat pump is the most efficient way to heat and cool your house. It is basically 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, and then re-circulates 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 come in a variety of designs. For more information, log onto www.energyright.com and click the link to heat pump types.
