Heat pump systems are 100 percent electric and are considered among the most efficient heating systems available for homes in central North Carolina.
How does a heat pump system work?
- Heat pump systems use a simple air circulation and transfer system to generate warmth.
- A heat pump has two coils – one to condense and another to evaporate air. These work together to generate heat or cool a house depending on the season.
- In the summer the heat pump conditions, humidifies and cools air; in the winter, the pump condenses and heats room temperature air.
What are some of the benefits of a heat pump system?
