Here at Weather Master, we think heat pumps are pretty cool. 

In fact, we think that heat pumps are downright fascinating and underappreciated.

Despite the heat pump’s deceiving name, they can actually be used to BOTH heat and cool your home.

Some models can even heat water!

Feel free to use the following fascinating facts about heat pumps to entertain your friends and family at your next holiday dinner. (You’re welcome.)

Heat Pumps Work Like Magic

How else would they be able to both heat AND cool your home?  We suppose the heat pump’s ability to act as a reverse air conditioner in the winter as it moves heat into your home, and a pump that removes heat from your home in the summer may have something to do with it.

Heat Pumps Take Advantage of Opportunities

For example, in the dead of winter you won’t find heat pumps complaining about the cold.  They are too busy looking outdoors for heat.  That is because even when it is below freezing temperatures outside, heat is still present.  Your heat pump will find it, and transfer it inside to heat your home.

Heat Pumps are Environmentally Friendly

Your heat pump cares about the environment and loves to recycle.  In lieu of generating new heat, your heat pump will move heat already present indoors.  They make useful and energy-efficient alternatives for people living in moderate climates or with minimal heating and cooling needs.

Heat Pumps are Cost-Effective

Heat pumps can reduce the amount of energy you consume and save you money on your utility bills. You may be able to lower the amount of energy you use to heat or cool your home by up to 40%.

Heat Pumps Help Remove Humidity

If you don’t enjoy sweating and feeling sticky in the humid summer months, you could benefit from becoming friends with a high-efficiency heat pump.  Not only do they save you energy and money, but they are better than traditional air conditioners at removing humidity from your home.

We've always known heat pumps were impressive members of the heating and cooling family.
