A heat pump is technology that controls temperature by transferring heat. For example, because heating is performed by the transfer of heat from outdoors to inside the room only a little electricity is necessary. This provides energy savings.
Our suite of leading heat pump brands from Daikin and Carrier, are an all-in-one system that delivers both heating and cooling options. The system acts like an air conditioner in the warmer months and then heats your home in cooler months. It’s an especially good alternative for cost-effective heating in the fall or if you live in a warmer climate.
Because a heat pump only keeps your home warm until the temperature drops below 37 degrees, most Wisconsin homeowners use a furnace as a backup. Paired with a gas or oil-fired furnace as a Hybrid Heat solution, an electric heat pump can offer significant savings on your overall, year-round heating costs.
Heat pumps are rated in SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) and HSPF (Heating Seasonal Performance Factor)—tools to use when comparing units for heating and cooling efficiency. Higher ratings equal greater energy savings and lower utility bills.
