Q. What is the difference between a heat pump and a furnace?
A. The Heat Pump takes the heat from the home and releases it outside in the summer to cool the home. In the winter it removes the heat in the outdoor air and releases it inside to warm the home. A furnace only produces heat by burning a fuel or using electric and also moves the air inside.
Q. How can a heat pump work with a heating and cooling system to be more efficient?
A. In mild weather the HP can provide all the necessary heat down to about 30-35 degrees, below that it would need some kind of backup heat source to provide the additional heat necessary to meet the load of the home down to 0 degrees.
