How does a Heat Pump work?
A heat pump works like an air conditioner in the summer, keeping your home cool by compressing refrigerant, and sending the refrigerant to the indoor coil. During an Atlanta winter season, a heat pump reverses the process to heat your home. An electric heat pump can be cheaper than fossil fuel in some areas when the temperature stays well above freezing. For extreme cold, a gas furnace is definitely more efficient to operate. Another type of heating for you Atlanta home is hybrid heating using the combination of a heat pump and furnace. Your thermostat switches between the heating sources depending on the outside temperature, which offers you the most efficient gas and electric heating possible!
Don’t let the name fool you. These heat pump units pull from the ground or outside air temperature to both heat and cool your home to perfection. A residential heat pump is a reliable, efficient choice in Southern states.
