Why are my summer energy bills the same as they were in winter when I am not heating my home?

One of the great things about a heat pump is that it’s reversible—it provides both heating and cooling (air conditioning) for the home. When the temperature in the home rises, the heat pump will switch to cooling mode. This means that during the summer months, you will see charges on your utility bill for the energy used to cool your home. In comparison, in a home with a typical air conditioning unit, a resident would see increased electricity charges for cooling their home.
