Peltier cooling ?

  1. Mar 28, 2010 #1
    When the heat gets transferred to one side and the other side gets cold , what causes this cooling effect , why does the heat go from one side to the other on the different metals ,
    does this have something to do with the electrons.

    I read that before I posted this , what doesn't make sense to me is that why does one get hot and one get cold , why don’t they both get hot , just one hotter than the other.
