Efficient heating and cooling will help you save on your home’s biggest energy expense.

What comfort solution is best for your home?
Heating and cooling account for nearly half of the average energy bill. Choosing a new system is often guided by what is already installed in your home.
Today’s gas furnaces are 90-95% efficient, compared to end-of-life standard models that are 15 years old or older and only 56-70% efficient.
An electric heat pump is a great choice for replacing an electric forced-air furnace as well as baseboard, radiant ceiling or wall/Cadet heaters. Heat pumps move heat rather than generating it, helping you save up to 50% on your annual heating costs.
A dual fuel system offers the best of both worlds: an electric heat pump and a gas furnace. The heat pump operates during milder temperatures when it is more efficient, and the system automatically switches over to the furnace in colder temperatures.
Why we love heat pumps
Upgrading to a heat pump can save up to 50% on annual heating costs.
Any electric heating system can upgrade to a heat pump. For homes with existing ductwork, a ducted heat pump system will heat and cool your entire home. For homes with baseboard, radiant ceiling or wall/Cadet heaters, ductless heat pumps (also referred to as mini-splits) make for easy installation with no need for ductwork.
Heat pumps — whether ducted or ductless — will heat your home quietly and evenly for a fraction of your current cost. They also come with air conditioning built-in, keeping your home cool in the summer. Another bonus? Built-in air filtration keeps indoor air clean year-round.
If you live in a region where winter temperatures frequently fall below freezing, extended capacity heat pump models operate the same way as standard heat pumps but don’t require backup heating when temperatures plummet. This option can save you even more during the coldest times of year.
