- Heating & Cooling
Heat pumps can efficiently heat in the winter and double as a cooling system in the summer—while lowering greenhouse gas emissions.
- Cost: Compared to heating with oil, propane, or electric resistance (baseboard), heat pumps can allow you to save money on energy expenses.
- Convenience: Heat pumps provide all-in-one comfort: heating, cooling, and dehumidification in one unit.
- Efficiency: Heat pumps can be up to 400% efficient—for every 1 unit of energy used to power a heat pump, up to 4 units of heat energy are supplied.
- Environmental impact: Heat pumps help reduce your carbon footprint by emitting less greenhouse gases.
- Efficiency first: Before upgrading your heating system, consider preliminary measures, such as sealing and insulating your ductwork or completing weatherization work.
- Electrical usage: A heat pump is an electrical system, so running one will add to your electrical use. In many cases, that additional electrical use is offset by savings elsewhere, such as a propane or oil heating fuel bill.
- Quality installation: Heat pumps work best when correctly sized and designed for your home. Working closely with a qualified contractor will help ensure your system is designed to meet your heating and cooling needs.
