Heat pumps look a lot like air conditioners and are internally very similar, however heat pumps perform both heating and cooling rather than cooling only. People often favor heat pumps over air conditioners because they receive cooling while at the same time receiving a more energy efficient heater. A heat pump does not replace the furnace, though. A heat pump is used in place of an air conditioner in conjunction with a furnace. The heat pump will produce the home’s heat the majority of the time while the furnace is utilized as a back up source of heat to be used when it is colder out. In other words, the heat pump becomes your primary source of heat, the furnace your secondary source. Heat pumps require back up heating because eventually it is cold enough outside such that they cannot keep up with the home’s heating demands. It is at this point the furnace turns on to assist the heat pump, or in some scenarios it takes over the heating entirely.
