It’s no surprise that Western New York receives its fair share of cold weather. For many, cold climate heat pumps are a great option for cost-effective comfort in homes and businesses alike. Cold Climate Heat Pumps have been known to reduce energy consumption by upwards of 40% when compared to more traditional methods such as baseboard heating and fuel oil.
The main function of a heat pump is to move heat from one area to another. Heat pumps are different from furnaces in that they do not burn fuel to create heat. Heat pumps generate and extract their own heat. In the winter, they take heat from the outside air and transfer it to the indoor air, which is then circulated through your home. In summer, the process is reversed and your heat pump removes heat from your indoor air and sends it outside. This keeps the inside cool.
