Upgrade your heating and cooling with a heat pump

The best way to heat your home in the winter and cool your home in the summer is with a heat pump. Heat pumps are more energy efficient than other heating and cooling systems like gas furnaces, oil heat, and central air. They’re even better than other types of electric heat.

Why do it: Homes with heat pumps use less energy and save money on their utility bills.

When: When your current HVAC unit is nearing end of life (usually about 10 years)

Who is this for? Whole-home heat pump systems for homeowners; portable and window units for renters
