- A heat pump is a device that uses a small amount of energy to move heat from one location to another
- Heat pumps are usually used to pull heat out of the air or ground to heat a home or office building, or they can be switched into reverse to also cool a building
- Heat pumps are a unique kind of heating system because they can do the work of both a furnace and an air conditioner
- Heat pumps can also work extremely efficiently, because they simply transfer heat rather than burn fuel to create it
- Heat pumps work best in moderate climates
- If you live in a moderate climate, using a heat pump instead of a furnace and air conditioner can help you save a lot of money on your utility bill
- Remember that most heat pumps are somewhat limited in the cold, so it is important that you learn which kind of heat pump is best for your area before installing one in your home or office building
