Heat Pumps

What is a Heat Pump?

This is a very common question because the concept is often misunderstood. A heat pump is a device that transfers thermal energy. Unlike a furnace or boiler, a heat pump does not produce heat. It transfers hot air to cold, and also cold air to hot. When you need warm air in your home, it transfers the cold air outside. When you need to cool your home, it transfers the warm air outside. That’s right, in many ways, a heat pump acts like an air conditioner as it cools your home as well. In addition, heat pumps do not burn fossil fuels making them more environmentally friendly.

Transfer Warm Air With a Heat Pump

One of the biggest costs involved in keeping your home comfortable is creating warm or cool air. Your furnace, boiler, air conditioner, or other HVAC appliance uses energy to change the temperature of the air as needed.

A heat pump is a highly efficient system that transfers warm air from cold instead of generating warm air. What system is right for you? Let Dash Mechanical evaluate your system and give you the facts so you can make wise decisions for you and your family.

Heat pumps are available that work down to -5 degrees, which will minimize or eliminate the use of your primary heating system. To learn more about saving with heat pumps, call Dash Mechanical.
