A furnace is a device that heats your building and offices. They require scheduled maintenance and repair to be fully effective. However, at times a furnace needs replacement. The device works by blowing heated air through the ventilation system in a building. It is called a forced warm air distribution system.
A heat pump is typically a vapor-compression refrigeration device. This device can change the direction of heat flow, giving you the control of heating or cooling using the same device.
Heat pumps eliminate the need for a furnace, which means that your heating, cooling, and ventilation system are all-in-one, which makes for easier maintenance and repair. However, heat pumps cost more during the winter than a traditional furnace because they use electricity, rather than propane gas, to heat the home.
