300% Efficient? Learn how a Mini-split with AC and heat pump works
HEAT PUMPS A.K.A: Cold climate heat pump, Mini-split, Heat & AC all-in-one unit, Home heat pump system and so on.
300% Efficient. Right, that’s what I said. I’m no math expert, but that doesn’t make sense, so I asked. Instead of always making new heat, it moves existing heat around to where it’s needed. That’s genius and makes total sense.
HOW A HEAT PUMP WORKS
When it's cold outside a heat pump extracts this outside heat and transfers it inside. When it's warm outside, it reverses directions and acts like an air conditioner, removing heat from your home. One advantage of a heat pump is that it moves heat instead of generating heat, giving you more energy efficiency.
Mini-split Heat pumps (that’s what I’m calling them) are a very cool investment that most definitely pays itself off over a short period of time.
