Air conditioners are a simplified type of heat pump doing one thing only, cooling. Just like your fridge! A true Heat Pump does both cooling and heating. When in heating mode you can save a lot of money compared to traditional electric heating, and even propane (LPG) or oil based heating. And because heat pumps run on clean electricity from renewable sources, they're much better for the environment compared to oil and gas fossil-fuel alternatives. Save money and help save the planet by upgrading your home to a heat pump! Check out my write up comparing winter heating cost between a gas furnace and a heat pump.
