Heat pumps are highly efficient in comparison to their natural gas competitors. To help push the adoption of this technology, California and the Federal government have been providing rebates and tax incentives for installing these efficient heating and cooling systems.

Heat Pump in San Rafael

Heat pumps in San Rafael are electrical devices that draw heat from one place and transfer it to another. They’re not recent technology; similar devices are used in most air conditioners and refrigeration units. You can think of a heat pump as a reversible air conditioner. During summer, it extracts heat from the house and dissipates it outdoors. But during winter, it will take all the heat from the outside air and help distribute it inside your home to warm things up. Heat pumps can function down to five degrees Fahrenheit and have been used for nearly four decades throughout the United States. Heat pump systems can work in either cooling or heating mode to make your home feel comfortable all year. A heat pump system can also provide complete climate control for the ideal hot and cold air you want.
