A heat pump is the cleanest, most efficient and least expensive way to heat and cool your home. In the summer, it removes the warm air from inside your home and moves it outside, leaving cool air inside. In the winter, the process reverses itself. The solar heat from the outside is pumped inside, keeping your home warm.
A heat pump needs no flue for venting fumes, does not require a flame and does not leave residue in your home. It is quiet, clean and safe, and it’s also the most cost-effective way to heat and cool your home.
There are different types of heat pumps. The most common in our area is an air-to-air source heat pump. There are other types that are more efficient (meaning your utility bills will be lower) such as dual-fuel, geothermal, and variable speed to name a few.

For maximum operating efficiency, proper installation of your heat pump is key! Choosing a heat pump dealer who is a member of the Quality Contractor Network (QCN) will insure your heat pump works correctly.
