Installing Heat Pumps: Picture by Picture
Interested in installing heat pumps to heat and cool your home efficiently?
Residential heat pumps, also called “mini-splits,” are composed of an exterior unit and typically wall mounted interior units. The two or more units are connected by small refrigerant pipes.
Heat pumps use electricity to move air to cool and heat your home and provide an efficient lower cost alternative to most of the other fuels.
