A heat pump will heat your home in the winter and cool it in the summer. The system uses condensing refrigerant like standard AC systems. However the direction the refrigerant flow changes depending on the season. In our area of the country, an additional heat source is needed to get thru our cold winters. In some southern climates the heat pump is the only system they use for all of their HVAC needs. Call Kenosha Heating and Cooling today to see if a heat pump is right for you!
