We can help you with a wide range of home heating solutions including heat pumps and electric heat.
Heat pumps are one of the most efficient home heating options available: they deliver steady, even, clean heat all winter, and comfortable coolness all summer.
TYPES OF HEAT PUMPS
An air source heat pump can provide whole-house heating and cooling when it is fully-ducted throughout the home. These systems are ideal for new home construction, or added to existing forced-air systems. Adding a heat pump to a forced-air furnace will optimize the efficiency of the heating system.
A ductless heat pump (or mini-split system) makes a good retrofit to homes with “non-ducted” heating systems. Since they have no ducts, they avoid the energy losses associated with ductwork of central forced air systems.
HOW THEY WORK?
COOL ALL SUMMER
During the warmer months, heat pumps work in reverse to keep your home cool and comfortable by moving heat and humidity from inside your home, outside. The heat pump unit acts as a fully equipped air conditioner. They’re reliable, efficient, and offer the best of both worlds with heating and cooling benefits all in one system.
HEAT ALL WINTER
Air-source heat pumps transfer heat energy from the air outside your home to the air inside. They’re very efficient, and work all winter, down to as low as -30, when your alternate heat source takes over. There’s more than enough warmth in the air on a typical Nova Scotia winter day for a heat pump to heat the average home. Air at -18 degrees still contains about 85% of the heat energy it contains at +21 degrees.
INSTALLATION, SERVICE AND MAINTENANCE
A properly installed heat pump will maximize the efficiency of your system and provide years of heating and cooling comfort. We are manufacturer-approved installers and offer quality heat pumps that are backed by comprehensive warranties. Annual service plans are available for approximately the same cost as furnace service plans.
Owning a heat pump can be convenient and affordable with easy financing on your power bill.
