A heat pump is a heating and cooling system that moves heat around rather than generating heat. The pump consists of an indoor air handler and an outdoor heat pump similar to the split-system of a central air conditioning unit. The pump even includes a compressor that pumps refrigerant through the system like a central HVAC unit. But the primary difference is that the heat pump takes heat from the ambient air either outside or inside your home then sends it in the opposite direction.

Your furnace has a number of parts that work together to provide your home with comfortable temperatures during the winter. But the part that actually does the heating is called the heat exchanger, which is a set of tubes or coils that twist through the main body of the furnace. The heat exchanger acts as a combustion chamber for electricity or a gas fuel. The combustion process makes the surface of the tube hot and a nearby motorized fan circulates air across the tubes and then out the vents of your home.

Gas heaters usually have lower operating costs The reason is simple. In most areas of the country, the price of natural gas is cheaper than the price of electricity, so given that the same amount of water is being heated, it will be cheaper to use gas.
