An increasing number of families are installing heat pumps at home as a supplementary heating and cooling system. They handle the cooling load in the Kawartha Lakes summer well and supplement the heat your furnace provides to warm your house through the winter, reducing the workload on your furnace substantially.
A heat pump uses two parts:
- An indoor unit (air handler).
- An outdoor unit that looks just like a central air conditioner.
A compressor circulates refrigerant that absorbs and releases heat as it travels between the indoor and outdoor units.
Heat pump installation takes only a few hours and causes minimal disruption to your daily routine.
