How Do Heat Pumps Work?
A new heat pump from Burns and McBride Home Comfort offers an energy-efficient alternative to furnaces and air conditioners. Heat pumps use electricity to move heat from a cool area to a warm one, which makes the cool space cooler in the summer and the warm space warmer in the winter. Heat pumps can provide up to 4 times the amount of energy they consume since they only move heat instead of generating it. This results in an extremely energy-efficient method of heating and cooling your home.
Carrier Heat Pumps
A Carrier heat pump is so effective that some homeowners in warmer climates rely exclusively on these units for year-round comfort. If you live in a colder environment, electric-powered heat pumps are great in combination with your oil- or gas-fueled furnace as a Hybrid Heat® solution, which can result in significant savings on your overall heating costs.

Acting as a heater in the winter and an air conditioner in the summer, an American Standard heat pump keeps the temperature in your home just how you like it. For ultimate flexibility, pair one of our quiet heat pumps with a furnace to create a hybrid comfort system for greater efficiency in all seasons.
