Air Conditioner vs. Heat Pump: What's the Right Option for You?
When you begin to think about heating and cooling, there are likely two main systems that you think of – the air conditioner and the furnace. However, there is another contender that may be more beneficial than the AC/furnace option. Put simply, the heat pump is a type of HVAC system that utilizes electricity to cool and to heat your home. It is similar to an air conditioner, but it can reverse the process of the AC and offer warm air for the home, as well.
