Unlike traditional heating methods like a furnace or boiler, heat pumps use electricity to keep your home warm. Instead of heating air, heat pumps take heat from outside your home and transfer it to your living space.
Heat pumps consist of 2 units. An outdoor condenser unit and an indoor fan coil unit that disperses this air around your home. Coolant is circulated between these 2 units as the heat is transferred into your home.
Heat pumps do not operate using natural gas or by burning any other fossil fuel. The pump is powered by electricity. Heat pumps can be installed for central air or as a mini-split system.
