HEAT PUMP vs. AIR CONDITIONER. When cooling, a heat pump and a central air conditioner operate the same. Each one cleans, dehumidifies, cools, and circulates air indoors. In a heat pump's heating mode, however, the process is reversed. The same cooling refrigerant that helps cool your home in summer absorbs heat from the outdoor air and transfers it to the indoor coil, efficiently heating your home even on the coldest days.
