More and more, heat pumps are becoming a popular choice in space heating and cooling systems. These heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) devices can save homeowners up to 50% versus oil and electric heat in some cases.
Heat pumps distribute thermal energy by use of an indoor space heater and an outdoor compressor and condenser to provide quiet, efficient operation. They can be installed, typically in half a day, in any home regardless of existing heat system, to serve as both a heat source and AC unit for dependable all-season comfort.

Geothermal heat pumps are known as the most efficient heating and cooling source available today. Theyâ€™re eco-friendly, versatile, long lasting and cost efficient, lowering your monthly utility bills significantly.
A large part of the savings comes from the fact that geothermal heat pumps use free, renewable energy in the form of heat from the earth itself. Unlike conventional heating systems â€“ oil, natural gas, coal or wood heat â€“ there is no combustion or fuel source required; they simply move existing heat from one place to another. Since there is no cost for the heat itself, a heat pump can emit more heat energy than the power it consumes. For every $1 you spend on heating, you get $4 of heat energy. That's 400% efficiency.
Geothermal heat pumps can be used for forced air heating and cooling, radiant in-floor, or a combination of both. Once installed, they eliminate the need for back up heat or additional air conditioning as theyâ€™re capable of providing full capacity heating and cooling whenever required, and most installations are sized to provide 100% of the heating load.
