As electricity rates in Ontario continue to rise, heat pumps offer home owners an energy-efficient way to heat and cool their space without breaking the bank.

How do heat pumps work?

Heat pumps do exactly what the name would suggest, they 'pump' heat from one environment into another. As a result, in the summer months the heat pump will pump the heat from inside of your home to the outside environment. In the winter, the pump will capture latent heat from the outside environment (yes, there is latent heat in outdoor cold air believe it or not) and pump it indoors. When combined with additional heating or cooling from the heat pump unit itself, you end up with a highly efficient heating and cooling solution. 

Heat pumps can provide similar heating and cooling at as little as one-quarter of the cost of operating a traditional furnace or air conditioner. The most common type of heat pump is the air-source heat pump, which transfers heat between your house and the outside air.

Why should I consider installing a heat pump?

  1. Today’s heat pumps can reduce your electricity use by an average of 30% – 60% compared to electric resistance heating such as furnaces and baseboard heaters.
  2. High-efficiency heat pumps dehumidify the air in your home better than standard central air conditioners. Resulting in less energy usage and greater comfort.
  3. For older homes without ducts, air-source heat pumps are also available in a ductless version called a mini-split heat pump.

Customer satisfaction with heat pump systems is very high. And with today’s hydro rates, they’re quickly becoming one of our most requested products. If you would like to learn more about heat pumps or other ways to lower your heating bills, contact Doyle Plumbing, Heating & Cooling.
