EN Webinar: Air Source Heat Pumps – High Efficiency Heating and Cooling

June 05, 2024

Learn about air source heat pump systems – the best way to heat and cool your home, lower your energy bills and slash your carbon emissions.

Heat pumps are 3-5 times more energy efficient than other heating and cooling systems like gas furnaces, oil heat, and electric baseboard heating, and they provide comfort year-round. In this 30 minute webinar, we’ll talk about how heat pumps work, how they compare in cost and performance to gas and old electric systems, tips to make your home more energy efficient, and much more.

Air source heat pumps move heat from one place to another, rather than creating it, which is why they’re so energy efficient. In cooling mode, they act as air conditioners, moving heat from the air inside your home to the outside. In heating mode, they harvest heat from the air outside your home and move it to the inside.

Join us as we explore the many benefits of installing an air source heat pump. We’ll discuss:

  • How do heat pumps work, and why are they so efficient?
  • How much energy can I save, and how much will it lower my home’s carbon emissions?
  • Is my house right for a heat pump?
  • What is the difference between ducted and ductless heat pumps?
  • How much does a heat pump cost?
  • Are there any incentives or tax credits to offset the cost?
  • What steps should I take to install a heat pump?
  • What questions should I ask my HVAC contractor to make sure I get the best result?
