Air Source Heat Pumps are an efficient, economical, and environmentally friendly way to heat and cool your home. Since heat pumps run on electricity, they are an ideal upgrade for ducted electric heating and cooling systems, providing comfort at a lower cost.

Air Source Heat Pumps use up to 40% less energy than electric resistance heating systems like furnaces, baseboards, and wall heaters. They also provide cooling, so a single system can deliver year-round comfort for your home. Cold Climate heat pumps work well in lower temperatures making them a good choice in all climates.

Heat pumps use electricity and refrigerant lines to move heat from one location to another, which is more energy efficient than creating heat. They transfer the heat out of the home in the summer and into the home during the winter. 

Cost, Payback and Incentives

The total cost depends on the size and efficiency of the system and the complexity of the installation.

Incentives of up to $1,200 may be available. Amounts vary based on the type of existing heating system; and the type of system being installed. Check with your local utility for specific incentive amounts and requirements.
