– Heat Pump type
Heat pump type are the systems that use thermal energy from outside to transmit heat to the interior of homes and buildings. Most heat pumps can also provide domestic hot water and work in the opposite direction to provide cooling (reverse cycle).
These units use a system that allows to generate heat in winter and cold in summer even in the most extreme climates. There are a few types of heat pumps on the market, but most models have a larger unit installed outside the home and a smaller, more compact or a wall-mounted unit inside. The most common types of heat pump systems are air-to-air, water source, and geothermal which collect heat through air, water or ground depending on the type, to transmit heat to the interior.
