A heat pump is an electrical device that extracts heat from one place and transfers it to another. In colder months, it moves heat still present in outdoor air, into your home. In hotter months, the process reverses, and the heat pump will move heat from inside your home to the outside, like an air conditioner.
In terms of heating and cooling your home, and in our Winnipeg climate, a heat pump is used together with a furnace and air conditioner. It mostly runs during the spring and autumn months. Your air conditioner and furnace will take over during summer and winter.
Here in Canada, where there is ductwork in a house, you'll most commonly find heat pumps of the air-source variety. For homes lacking ductwork, an alternative option is a ductless mini split heat pump, where up to eight cartridges are mounted on the wall indoors, in different rooms, and are supported by one outside system.
