Heat pump uses same system as air conditioning but in reverse. It takes the heat out of refrigerant to warm the house. In New York and New Jersey a heat pump can be used all year with exception of the coldest winter months.
A heat pump is only efficient at extracting heat from refrigerant in outdoor temperatures above freezing. Below 32 degrees Fahrenheit a heat pump becomes inefficient way to heat a home and must be supplemented with a more traditional heat source. Heat pump heat output can only be of same amount of BTU as existing AC. In other words if your home has a 3 ton (36,000 btu) ac, it would have a 36,ooo btu heat output. Heat pump uses electricity, which is significantly cheaper than gas heat and oil.
