More and more homes are turning from the standard furnace-and-air conditioner HVAC systems to using heat pumps. A heat pump is a comfort system that combines both heating and cooling functions in a single unit.

A heat pump isn’t difficult to explain. As long as you know the basics of an air conditioner, you’re halfway to understanding a heat pump. That’s because a heat pump is basically an air conditioner that can reverse the direction it works.
The conventional air conditioner uses chemical refrigerant to absorb heat from inside a home through an evaporator coil, and then exhaust the heat outside through a condenser coil. A heat pump allows the refrigerant in the system to flow in the opposite direction, which causes the two coils to swap functions. The outdoor coil absorbs heat and the indoor coil releases it into the house.
