Enjoy versatile energy efficiency through the seasons with Air-Source Heat Pumps (ASHPs). They function as a hyper-efficient central air conditioner, as well as a source of supplemental heat.
Your cooperative can help with your investment.
It’s the best of both worlds. ASHPs provide home cooling and supplemental heating with 72% less electricity than conventional air conditioners and furnaces. You can switch between cooling and heating directly from the thermostat, putting you in complete control.
These whisper-quiet pumps work their dual magic without an open flame. They don’t create any products of combustion such as carbon monoxide. No need to vent—or worry.
Compared to conventional furnaces, the warmth provided by ASHPs distributes more evenly and holds its moisture better. The result is a more natural, more comfortable warmth. The pumps work in tandem with conventional furnaces and automatically select the most ideal balance between the two heating sources.
They constantly maintain the most efficient heating combination based on your desired indoor temperature. During the spring and fall, you may not need to run your furnace at all. A conventional furnace or other heat source is still necessary during the coldest days of the year.
The key to these units’ dramatic efficiency is their ability to transfer more energy than they consume. This is accomplished by using advanced technology to extract and relocate ambient heat from the air.
When you need to cool your home, it pulls heat directly from your indoor air and pumps it outside. This process is reversed for the purposes of home heating.
When you need to cool your home, ASHPs outperform standard central air conditioners by extracting the existing heat from inside your home and pumping it outside.
The cooling process is reversed when you use ASHPs to provide supplemental heat. By extracting the existing warmth from the outdoor air and pumping it into your home, you'll be able to run your furnace less. During the spring and fall, you may not need to run your furnace at all.
