Facts About Heat Pumps
Heat pumps work by transferring heat. Depending on the season, a heat pump acts as a heating or a cooling system. It takes less energy to transfer heat than to produce it. That is why heat pumps are so efficient, delivering more than two units of heat for each unit of electricity it uses. This efficiency means it can cost 25% to 50% less to run a heat pump than an electric resistance heating system. Download this fact sheet for more information on the benefits of heat pumps.
