The technology in an air-source heat pump is similar to what you would find in your kitchen refrigerator. Using a simple refrigeration cycle, refrigerators remove heat from your food and drinks and reject it into the kitchen. This process of moving heat is achieved by taking advantage of the energy stored and released when a refrigerant changes from a liquid to a gas.

Simply put, a heat pump can move heat into or out of your home. In the summer, it acts like a standard air conditioner and moves heat from the inside outdoors. It does exactly the opposite in the winter, capturing heat from the outdoors and moving it into your home, keeping you and your family warm.
