Wait, Why Is a Home Cooling System Called a Heat Pump?

This is a valid question, and one with a surprising answer for some. If you assume that a heat pump is a home heating system, then you are actually right. If, though, you think that a system called a "heat" pump is not an air conditioner, then you are wrong. In truth, the heat pump is unique among HVAC systems in that it is actually capable of offering homeowners both heating and cooling, and in one convenient package. If you are wondering how this is possible, the answer lies in its ability to reverse the heat transfer process.

Remember, an air conditioner does not actually conjure up cool air. Instead, it removes existing heat in warm air, thus cooling it, while venting its heat outdoors. The heat pump acts like an air conditioner in this sense. However, it is also able to reverse this operation, meaning that, in the winter months, a heat pump can absorb existing thermal energy from the air outside, even when it is quite cold, compress its refrigerant in order to boost its thermal energy, and use that heat in order to warm one's home. This allows for extremely efficient heating, as heat is transferred, rather than generated. If you are interested in convenient and efficient heating and cooling in one package, then a heat pump may be the right cooling option to invest in this summer.
