Air Source Heat Pump
One of the most efficient ways to both heat and cool your home. An air source heat pump does require a supplemental heat source for those extremely cold days.
An air source heat pump extracts heat from the outside air to heat your home. When properly installed, it can deliver two to four times more heat energy than the electrical energy it consumes, making it very efficient and economical to operate. During the summer, an air source heat pump cools your home like a central air conditioning unit. However, during the cooler months it reverses to provide heat. A properly sized air source heat pump will require a supplemental heat source as the heating needs of the home increases. The addition of a modulating electric plenum heater will provide supplemental heat automatically during those times and result in further savings. Most air source heat pumps are installed with a non-electric furnace which qualifies the system for the dual fuel electric rate.
