Rebates or financing to help you switch from electric heat to an air-to-water heat pump - and start saving money!
Efficient heat pump systems can save you hundreds of dollars a year, using up to 60% less energy.
Popular in Europe and Japan, an air-to-water heat pump extracts heat energy from the outside air, allowing year-round domestic hot water as well as seasonal space heating and cooling. The benefits are many, including:
- Saving energy: extracting more energy from the air (as heat) than it consumes (as electricity), and can offer space heating and cooling as well as water heating
- Reducing costs: creating up to 2 – 5 kilowatts of heat energy for each kilowatt it consumes
- Lowering emissions: avoiding fossil fuel-based electricity
- Ease of installation: working with existing furnace ductwork, radiators, baseboard convectors or in-floor hydronics
