The Future of Heating and Cooling

Heat pumps have always been an efficient way to heat and cool your home. A heat pump can cool your home like an air conditioner or freezer by moving heat from inside to out and also provide heating by reversing that process, cooling the outside air to move that heat inside.

However, when heat pumps were first brought to market, they were not viable sources of primary heat since they didn't work below freezing. Today, they are able to provide reliable heat from outside temperatures measuring -15 °F and even lower when skillfully installed.

Unfortunately, as usual, the opposite is also true. If proper attention is not paid to system design, the ability of a heat pump to operate at its rated performance can be hindered. A good mechanical contractor will design ductwork and piping systems to deliver heating and cooling evenly throughout different parts of a building.
