Why Switch to Air Source
Air source heat pump heating is not a new concept as it has been used in some areas of the world for up to 40 years. The big limitation historically was it was unable to operate (could not supply heat fast enough to stay ahead of heat loss) in colder climates that went below -12 C. With the technology being advanced in the last decade our air source heat pumps now work down to -30'C with the inverter and variable speed compressor technologies. With this new ability, our Cold Climate Heat Pumps have become the most energy efficient heating systems available from a cost recovery concept.
Cold Climate Heating has conducted a demo house in 2017 to track the savings from converting to one of our heating/cooling pumps. Below is a sample of the first year savings:
