Homeowners can get the best of both heating and cooling with a heat pump. In areas where the climate is moderate, like Atlanta, a heat pump is an energy efficient alternative to regular furnaces and air conditioners. Edwards Heating & Air offers several different models of heat pumps, along with preventative HVAC maintenance and HVAC repairs for your heat pump.

How Heat Pumps Work

The beauty of a heat pump is that it can cool and heat a home with only one system. They operate using a small amount of energy to move heat from one area to another. During the cooling season, the heat pump moves heat from your cool home back outside into the warm weather. During the heating season, it moves heat from outside into your house to warm it up. Moving heat, rather than producing heat, is less expensive compared to typical air conditioners and furnace systems.

Benefits from Heat Pumps

With the benefit of heat pumps working year round, the advantages are many:

  • Combines heating and cooling in one system
  • Energy efficient for saving money
  • Improved air quality in your home
