The majority of homes in the U.S. have an HVAC system that consists of an air conditioner and a furnace (either electric or gas-powered). The two are housed in the same cabinet and share a blower fan. But there is a way that you can enjoy heating and cooling for your home with a single system. It's a heat pump, which uses the technology of the air conditioner and adapts it so the system can also send out warm air. All it takes is a single adjustment on the thermostat, and the heat pump will switch from cooling mode to an energy-efficient heating mode.

The miracle of an installation that provides heating and cooling isn't actually that miraculous when you get down to the details. A heat pump system works on the simple principle that if you reverse the direction an air conditioner works, you can have heat brought into your home rather than out of it.
Think of standard AC. What do you feel when you go to the outside cabinet while the system is running? That's right, warm air being blown out. What a heat pump does is change the direction of the flow of refrigerant in the system so that the indoor and outdoor components switch jobs. That heat you feel coming out of the outdoor unit will now instead come out of the indoor unit.
Aside from the enormous benefit of having a two-in-one comfort system to take care of you throughout the year, heat pumps provide a number of other advantages. In heating mode, a heat pump offers a less expensive way of warming a house than many other types of heaters. For example, an electric furnace must use its electricity to create heat through electrical resistance heating (i.e. heating up coils). But a heat pump doesn't actually create heat; it uses electrical power to move heat. This consumes far less electricity than the electric furnace.
Heat pumps are also an excellent choice for home heating for people who are nervous about using natural gas for warmth. Heat pumps are safe to use; even their cabinet remains cool when in heating mode.
