What is a heat pump system?
A heat pump system is an air conditioning system that provides cooling in the summer and runs in reverse in the winter to provide heating. Therefore, it provides both heating and cooling.
How does a heat pump system work?
During the heating season, the system will move heat from the cool outdoors into your warm house, thereby heating your home. In the cooling season, it will move heat from your cool house to the warm outdoors, thereby cooling your home. Heat pumps are a highly efficient method of heating your home when the outside temperature is regularly above 25 degrees. If you live in a cold climate where the temperature regularly falls below 25 degrees, a secondary heat source such as a gas, oil, or propane furnace or electric heat (heater coil) is required to keep your home warm on the coldest days.

Pairing two heating systems together is called a two-stage heating system or "hybrid" system. Hybrid heating systems are commonly used to achieve low operating costs.
