Air source heat pumps offer the same cooling benefit as an air conditioner, often at a higher efficiency.
If you want a heat pump to be your primary heating system, you’ll need a "cold-climate air source heat pump" and a secondary heating system.
- What makes a heat pump fit for our cold climate? It heats efficiently down to 5oF and even lower in many cases.
- What is a secondary heating system? It supports the heat pump on the few weeks a year when it gets very cold. Often, you can simply keep your existing heating system in working order.
- Did you know?
- Heat pumps move heat and that takes far less energy than conventional heating systems which create heat.
- You can even extract heat from really cold air!
If your home is currently heated with electricity, with a cold climate air source heat pump, you could see 55% bill savings. For propane, 30% bill savings or more.
