Answer: Heat pumps are just like conventional air conditioners, they also can provide heat in the winters. Just like an air conditioner removes the heat from your home and transfers it to the outdoor during the summer period, a heat pump reverses the process. Even with outdoor temperatures as low as the mid-30 degree range, a heat pump can remove heat from the outdoor air and transfer it to the inside of your home very efficiently. A heat pump is a very viable option on a home that is all electric, versus just using electric heat strips only.
