Heat Pumps Give Heat when it’s Chilly
Because refrigerant is naturally much colder than outdoor temperatures even on a very cold day, it actually absorbs heat from outdoors, and transfers the heat it absorbed outside to within your home. The refrigerant’s physical properties do this naturally. What you pay for is the electricity to pump refrigerant via copper tubing from outdoors to indoors. Because we move the heat rather than create it (as electric baseboard or resistant heat does), we can deliver up to 4 times the heat for the energy we consume!
Heat Pumps Air Condition When It’s Warm
Come spring and summer, simply reverse the process and put the same system into “cooling mode” and transfer heat from indoors to the outside. For many climates, the advanced technology that goes into these units creates a far more cost effective alternative to either gas or oil-fired units for heat, or a central ducted system for air conditioning. Fujitsu’s mini-splits come in both cooling-only models or heat pumps, which provide both heating and cooling.
