How Does a Heat Pump Work?
Heat pumps heat and cool homes using refrigerant to transfer heat. This process is incredibly energy-efficient because heat pumps don’t generate heat like other heating systems.
In winter, heat is removed from the air outside and transferred into your home to warm it. In summer, heat is removed from the air inside and transferred outside, cooling your home like an air conditioner would.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is dual-fuel heating?
Dual-fuel heating refers to hybrid systems that use a heat pump for most of your heating and cooling needs and a furnace when needed for more intense heat.
This is a great option for Philadelphia residents who can reap the benefits of a heat pump while having backup heating for snow storms and frigid temperatures.
Do heat pumps use refrigerant?
Yes, heat pumps are more similar to cooling systems than heating systems in that they use the refrigeration process instead of combustion.
Air conditioners use refrigerant to cool your home, while heat pumps and some ductless mini-splits use it to cool and heat your home.
