Heat pumps serve various applications, including space heating and cooling, domestic hot water, and industrial process heat. During winter, heat pumps extract heat from the air, ground, or water outside and transfer it indoors. Conversely, in the summer, the process is reversed, removing heat from indoors and transferring it outside.
Heat pumps are highly efficient, offering considerable energy savings compared to alternative heating and cooling systems. In winter, a heat pump can provide an equivalent amount of heat as a traditional furnace but with a fraction of the energy. Similarly, in the summer, a heat pump can cool as effectively as a conventional air conditioner while using less energy.
