Air is blown across a heat exchanger which contains refrigerant gasses, the refrigerant absorbs the latent heat in the atmosphere, this is then put through a refrigeration cycle inside the machine, where the compressor allows the refrigerant to superheat and create a much hotter temperature which is then transferred to the heat in your heating system via another heat exchanger. The more efficient the heat pump the better the yield of heat and economical run of the appliance, thus saving money in running costs, keeping your bills as low as possible.
