A heat pump is a beautiful option for residents in the state of Ohio. It is a single product that works to both heat and cool your home. The basic concept behind a heat pump is to move heat to where you want it to go. In the cold months it takes the heat energy from the cold outside air – and believe us, it’s there – and moves it inside to keep you warm. When it’s hot outside, it removes the heat energy from inside your house and moves it outside, which makes it act like an air conditioner.
