AIR-SOURCE HEAT PUMP vs. CENTRAL AIR CONDITIONER
SAVE MONEY & STAY COOL AT THE SAME TIME!
A central air conditioner will cool and dehumidify your home, but that is all it will do. There is a better option in most situations: an air-source heat pump (ASHP). An ASHP will cool and dehumidify a home and will also supply about 50% of a home's heating needs. It can be used 9 - 10 months of the year! The initial invesment for an ASHP is greater than that for central air conditioning, but the payback will be just a few years due to the efficiency of the heat pump. The ASHP has an operational efficiency between 200 - 300%. So technically, for every 1 watt of input, there are 2 - 3 watts of output. We also offer rebates on Energy-Star rated heat pumps.
