A heat pump can often do the work of both a heater and air conditioner in your home or office building, despite the limitations of its name. A heat pump works by pulling hot air from one source and moving it to another. In the winter, that could mean moving warm air from surrounding air or the ground, and releasing it into the home or office. In the hotter summer months, the opposite technique is used to pull the hot air from inside the building and release it outside. The same technique is applied to refridgerators and freezer units. By doing the work of two units, a heat pump can save money over the years. Though they run a little more expensive initially, they are well worth the value.
