Basics.
A heat pump is a closed circuit that moves heat from one place to another.

Under the hood. 
1. A fan pulls heat into the evaporator from its source. This heat brings the system’s refrigerant to a boil, transforming it to gas.

2. The evaporated refrigerant moves to the compressor to be heated.

3. Once heated, the refrigerant moves to the heat exchanger where air can be warmed and pushed through your home’s duct work. Then the cycle repeats.When cooling, the heat pump’s reverse valve is activated so warm air inside your home is pulled out and released outside.

Handy tips for homeowners.
1. Refrain from playing with the thermostat.

2. Install a programmable one for best results.

3. Remember to clean or change your filters.
