How a Cold Climate Heat Pump Works
Heat pumps are versatile and efficient at heating and cooling your home. In the summer, a heat pump will take heat from inside your home and displace it outside, effectively cooling the indoors. In the winter, it will take heat energy from outside (even when it's cold out) and bring it indoors.
Because temperatures in Vermont get so cold in the winter, it is still important to have a backup method of heating your home. How effective your heat pump is at low temperatures depends on the model you choose.
