Ducted (Air-Source) Heat Pumps

How Heat Pumps Work:

Ducted Heat Pump Systems  extracts heat from the air and transfers heat to either the inside or outside of your home depending on the season.

Winter - Heat pumps move heat from the cool outdoors into your warm house.

Summer - Heat pumps move heat from your cool house into the warm outdoors.

Heat Pump Advantages:

Move Heat Rather Than Generate Heat - Heat pumps can provide up to 4 times the amount of energy they consume. This is possible because a heat pump moves heat from the air rather than converting it from a fuel.

Savings - If you heat with electricity, a heat pump can reduce the amount of electricity you use for heating by up to 60%.

Dehumidify - High-efficiency heat pumps also dehumidify better than standard central air conditioners, resulting in less energy usage and more cooling comfort in summer months.

Comfort - Heat pumps deliver constant, even temperatures, and are quiet inside and out.

Durability -  With routine maintenance, heat pumps are typically durable and highly reliable. A properly maintained and installed heat pump can deliver service for 20 years or more.

 

Energy efficiency ratings: SEER and HSPF

Heat pumps have 2 efficiency ratings because they both cool and heat the home:

  •  SEER (Season Energy Efficient Ration) - is the cooling efficiency, and ranges from 13 to the 20s (it’s rising as technology advances).
  • HSPF (Heating System Performance Factor) - is the heating efficiency and ranges from 7.7-10.

For Canadians a higher HSPF rating will have a larger impact on yearly energy bills and cost of operation than what SEER ratings will.
