Answer: A heat pumps works by moving heat from a cool space to a warm space. As a result it makes the cool space cooler and the warm space warmer. It does so with the help of electricity. In winters the heat pumps move heat from the cool outdoors into your cold house. During the cooling season, heat pumps moves heat from your house into the outdoors. As they do not use any fuel to generate heat they are more eco-friendly compared to furnaces. They also have lower operational cost compared to an air- conditioner.
