Air-Source Heat Pumps

Learn how air-source heat pumps can provide clean, efficient heating and cooling for your home.

How it Works

While most heating systems burn fuel or utilize electric resistance, a heat pump moves existing heat from one place to another. Air-source heat pumps collect heat from the outdoor air, transfer it via an air exchanger, and distribute it inside. During the summer, the operation is reversed to cool your building by moving heat from indoors to outdoors.

Ductless Mini-Split Heat Pumps

For homes without ducts for central air conditioning or heating, air-source heat pumps are also available in a ductless version called a mini-split heat pump. Mini-splits are efficient, whisper-quiet, and can keep your home or business comfortably warm or cool without blocking a window.

Air-Source Heat Pump Benefits

  • Uses energy more effectively. Since air-source technology concentrates and transfers heat rather than generating it directly, heat pumps can deliver one-and-a-half to three times more heat energy to a home than the electrical energy they consume.
  • Dual heat-and-cooling system
  • Cost savings
  • Whisper quiet
  • Lower emissions
  • Filters and dehumidifies the air
