What is a Heat Pump?

Heat pumps and air conditioners are essentially the same when operating in cooling mode, with no significant difference in operation, efficiency, or energy costs. However, the heating mode is a completely different story. Air conditioners do not provide heating, but heat pumps do. Thanks to a reversing valve in the outdoor unit, a heat pump can absorb heat energy from outside air, even in extremely cold temperatures, and transfer the heat inside the home, where it releases the heat into the air. A heat pump can heat and cool, but an air conditioner cannot.

Safer, Cleaner, Healthier Indoor Air

A heat pump is a clean, flameless heating system which reduces infiltration of outside air required to support combustion in many fossil fuel systems.

Better Comfort

A ductless system is able to distribute cold or warm air evenly and efficiently throughout the home and offers room by room comfort control.

Extended Equipment Life Expectancy

With proper care, and maintenance, a ductless system can last up to 20 years.

Money Savings & Flexibility

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, the performance of today’s air source heat pumps is one-and-a-half to two times greater than those available 30 years ago. Cold Climate Air Source Heat Pumps are the latest generation and utilize variable capacity technology, with temperature control by inverter compressors, greatly expanding cold climate performance (down to -20F). Rebate specifications are often used to specify cold climate products.

Minimize Your Carbon Footprint

A heat pump is a clean, flameless heating system. Heat pumps uses electricity from an increasingly clean electric grid. Coal generation is increasingly being phased out of our electricity grid in favor of cheaper, cleaner alternatives such as wind and solar. When properly sized and installed, Heat pumps are environmentally responsible and can have positive effects on your home’s, your community’s, and the planet’s impact.
