What is a Reverse Cycle Split System?
A reverse-cycle split system can heat as well as cool and is one of the cheapest ways to heat your home in winter. In cooling mode, it extracts heat from the indoor air and moves it outside, via pipes connecting the indoor and outdoor units. In winter it ‘absorbs’ heat from the outdoor air to warm the air inside.
