Heat pumps may provide a more energy-efficient option for cooling and heating homes in certain climates. There are two main types of heat pumps: compression heat pumps, which always operate on mechanical energy through electricity, and absorption heat pumps, which run on electricity or burnable fuels.
Westinghouse markets eight models of heat pumps with various features including: programmable thermostats, filtering systems to reduce allergens such as mold and dust, and ozone-safe refrigerants. Outdoor units are covered by a metal jacket to protect the coil from weather damage and flying debris.
History of Westinghouse
The Westinghouse Electric Company was founded by George Westinghouse in 1886 and was renamed the Westinghouse Electric Corporation in 1889. After close to a century of acquisitions and inventions, the corporation divested itself of a number of divisions in the 1970s including appliances, electric lamps (to Philips) and elevators/escalators (to Schindler).
In the 1990s, it sold its defense business to Northrup Grumman, purchased the CBS television network, and later acquired Infinity Broadcasting. In 1999, Westinghouse sold itself to Viacom which later renamed itself CBS Broadcasting, traded on the New York Stock Exchange as CBS and CBSA.
