The energy benefits of having heat pumps installed are many, and one can always call on expert Boone heating services, such as Mountaineer Heating and Cooling, to have them installed. However, you need to know a few things before making your purchase. First, you’ll need to decide what type of heat pump to install. Heat pumps work on the basic principle of heat transfer; they move heat from one place to another, resulting in cooling in one area, while another area gets heated. This happens naturally when heat from a high temperature area moves to a low temperature one. Heat pumps can make this happen in reverse to cool a home and also to heat it, if necessary. Most heat pumps are air-sourced, which means they draw or dump the heat from or into the air. The other main type, ground-source heat pumps, are connected to the ground or a large body of water for their heat source.
