Typically, the air conditioner is separate from the heating system. The conventional split air conditioning system uses refrigerant to absorb heat from the air in the home and then move that heat outside. In the winter, when you switch over the thermostat to “heating” mode, your furnace kicks in.
But that’s not the only way to cool and heat a home. A heat pump is a high-efficiency heating system and an air conditioning system too. It looks a lot like the standard central air conditioner, with an indoor blower unit and an outside compressor unit, but it has extra components that help it to move heat into the home in the winter.

A Heat Pump Is Ideal for Our Climate in Austin
In Austin, we have a climate that’s perfect for heat pumps most of the year. In the summer, it will work just as well as your old central air conditioner. In fact, if you choose a high–efficiency heat pump replacement, it may use far less energy than your old air conditioner.
In the winter, temperatures outside rarely drop so low that a heat pump cannot perform efficiently. Heat pumps absorb heat from the air outside and then transfer that heat indoors. It should be able to do this even as temperatures approach freezing.
