Dual-Purpose Heat Pumps Warm and Cool Your Home for Year-Round Comfort
A heat pump is essentially an air conditioner that can both heat and cool a house. A simple explanation of this technology is that a heat pump extracts heat from the air outside and transfers it into your home. In many cases, it can do this much more efficiently than a gas or oil furnace. In summer, when you want to cool things down, the process reverses, and heat energy is absorbed in your house and released outside.
Heat pumps can provide whole-home comfort or room-by-room temperature control as part of a ductless split system. Here in Wisconsin, where winters can be very cold for very long, we often recommend a hybrid heat system that pairs a gas furnace with an electric heat pump—this system automatically switches between electric and gas heating as needed to keep your home comfortable while optimizing the efficiencies of each fuel source.
