What is a heat pump?
A heat pump is an efficient electrical device that heats and cools your home. When you optimize its use, it consumes even less energy.
Did you know that, when it comes to heating your home in the colder months, a heat pump can be up to three times more efficient than baseboards? It’s an excellent way to save on your electricity bill.
In the warmer months, it’ll keep you just as cool as air-conditioning.
How does it work?
A heat hump doesn’t generate heat: it moves it around. That’s why it uses less energy than other heating devices.
Even in temperatures as low as −20°C, a low temperature heat pump (or cold climate heat pump) provides a good amount of heat to meet a large part of a home’s heating needs. When it’s cold, a heat pump combined with another heating system is one of the most cost-effective options on the market. Most air-source heat pumps have a minimal operating temperature below which they cannot operate. In newer models, it can vary between −15°C and −25°C. Below that temperature, an auxiliary system must be used to provide all the heating for the home.
