So, You’re Looking for an Air Conditioner Heater Combo?
Traditionally our homes and businesses have had two separate pieces of equipment for heating and cooling.
Traditional Air Conditioning
The air conditioner has typically been what we all recognize, a unit outside with a big fan on it.
Traditional Furnaces for Heating
Traditionally our homes and businesses have had two separate pieces of equipment for heating and cooling. One has typically been some type of furnace for heating. It uses natural gas, propane, oil or some other type of fossil fuel. The furnace ignites when triggered by the thermostat and creates fire which then blows the heat from that fire around your home of business.
Traditional Air Conditioning
The air conditioner has typically been what we all recognize, a unit outside with a big fan on it. This system is separate from the furnace and has been known by the masses to work effectively but drives your electric bill up significantly. Air conditioner units are usually one of the first purchases people make if they do not have one, once they have the resources or credit to do so. It has been a dream come true, once it is installed.

Many people may not understand that there is technology today that allows you to heat and cool your home or business with just one system. This system also does not use fossil fuel and it operates more efficiently than traditional furnaces and air conditioners. These systems have more options for how the cold or warm air will be delivered. You can use a traditional ducted method, or a more controlled method which is ductless. This allows you to have zones that you control. There is no need to pay for the entire home to be cooled or heated if only a portion of the space is being used. This control results in even further savings in your utility bills.

Do cold-climate heat pumps provide both AC and heat?
A cold-climate heat pump can heat and cool, but an air conditioner cannot, which is the primary difference between the two HVAC systems. An air conditioner is typically paired with a furnace to provide heat during the cold months.
Does a cold-climate heat pump work as an air conditioner?
If you are looking to replace the air conditioning or heating system in your home, you may want to consider an air-source/cold-climate heat pump. These products provide cool air in the summer, just like standard air conditioners, but also provide heat in the winter.
Does it cost more to heat or cool a house with a heat pump?
Cold-climate heat pumps use less energy in cooling mode – by about five times, in fact. This is because heat pumps draw hot air from outside when in heating mode, and since this mode is usually only used in cold weather, there isn't a ready supply of heat for it to absorb.
