Air conditioning is still rarely associated as a system that works well not only during the hot, but rather short, summer in Poland. But it turns out that newer air conditioners can not only cool, but also heat rooms. Most often such systems are used in transitional periods, but the development of technology will certainly promote their year-round use.
Actually, we are not talking about some completely new system, but we mean the constant technological development of air conditioners. Nowadays they are multifunctional devices and the heating function is actually additional in them.
Modern devices, which are used for space heating, are not revolutionary from the technical side. The basic element that affects their new functionality is the heat pump. It allows you to reverse the process that takes place when cooling. Instead of cold, warm air is pumped into the interior
The air conditioner itself is built from an outdoor unit and an indoor unit, which are connected by a cable. When heating with an air conditioner, heat is extracted by the outdoor unit and transferred to the indoor unit. This in turn is used to heat the room

Air-conditioning heating can be compared with electric heating. Both systems are often used in transitional periods as they are suitable for additional use. The comparison is definitely in favour of air-conditioning heating. This option is cheaper and more functional. It turns out that modern fans have a very high efficiency. Thus, in a short time they can bring the temperature in the room to the marked level. At the same time, they are equipped with systems that are responsible for maintaining heat for a long time. Here we are talking about costs up to 60% lower than with electric heating.
