A heat pump is a device similar to an air-conditioning unit that can be used to either heat or cool a building. It does so with a transfer of energy; the direction of which depends on if the area needs heated or cooled. If heated, it will draw heat from the outside and bring it indoors. The reverse is true if the building needs cooled, and it will draw the heat from inside to dissipate outdoors. Having a heat pump to replace a heater and air-conditioner can save a lot of resources. Only one unit to do the work of two means you save money, and have higher energy efficiency. Heat pumps in 98022 come from Treat’s Heating and Cooling.
