A ducted air source heat pump is an efficient electric home heating and cooling system.
How Does it Work?
A ducted air source heat pump uses traditional air ducts and vents throughout a home to distribute warm or cool air. To heat a home, it absorbs heat from the outdoor air, then moves the heat to the air handler to circulate warm air throughout the home. During the summer it absorbs heat from the home then moves the heat to the outdoor unit to dissipate it.
