A heat pump is an electrical device that removes heat from one place and transfers it to another, using the process of refrigeration.
In winter, it serves as a heating system, while in summer it serves as an air conditioner.
The heat pump is not a new innovation; it has been used in Canada and around the world for decades. Refrigerators and air conditioners use the same technology as heat pumps.
Central Ducted Systems
A central heat pump system is ideal for a fully ducted house. Highly efficient central systems with variable speed inverter technology are now available.
These systems provide whole home comfort, with one indoor air handler ducted to all rooms of the house.
Mini-Split Ductless Systems
Mini-split heat pump systems use inverter technology to deliver superior performance in a space-saving format. They are small and quiet with extremely efficient operation.
There are several options for indoor units: high wall head, floor console, ceiling cassette, and concealed ducted air handler.
Ductless Multi-Zone Systems
A multi-zone system can heat up to five areas from a single outdoor unit. It is an efficient, quiet and flexible alternative for homes without ducting.
The multiple indoor units allow for temperature control zoning in different areas of the house.
