keeping it cool. The heat transfer fluid (refrigerant) used is at
such a low temperature it boils at minus 40 deg so that even on
the coldest winter's day, heat is absorbed and transferred indoors.
Running costs are low since electricity is not used to produce
heat only to drive a mechanical compressor (pump) indoor /outdoor
and fans. In winter a heat pump produces up to three units (kw)
of heat for every unit (kw) of electrical energy used. Heat pumps

for your home and will pay for themselves in the long run. Most
