The Inflation Reduction Act has started to persuade more homeowners to consider switching over to a heat pump due to the available tax credits and rebates.

This means that 23 million homes currently heated by gas or oil will need to move to a low-carbon alternative, such as a heat pump.
Since heat pumps are fairly new and so different from other heating and cooling systems, let's break down common misconceptions about them and cover what's actually true.
