One of the best ways to save energy and money in your home is by heating and cooling your home with a heat pump.
Heat pumps move heat into homes or buildings during winter and out of them in summer, reducing overall home heating and cooling costs by as much as 40%, according to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE).
They can be installed in new or existing homes with no fossil fuels, propane gas tanks, and no danger of carbon monoxide. Installing a heat pump instead of an air-conditioner provides both heating and cooling options that can enhance comfort, reduce costs, and provide a long-term heating and cooling solution.

ENERGY STAR Certified Air Source Heat Pumps - $225/ton
An air-source heat pump transfers heat between your house and the outside air. They use a system of coils to evaporate and condense a refrigerant with the help of a compressor. During the summer, the heat pump functions as an air conditioner. During the winter, it runs in reverse and provides heat.
To qualify as an Energy Star Heat Pumps, units must have the following federal ratings:
|SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency)||15+|
|EER (Energy Efficiency)||12.5+|
|HSPF (Heating Seasonal Performance Factor)||8.5+|
Standard Air Source Heat Pumps - $100/ton
Standard units that are over 3/4 ton that meet the federal standards of at least:
|SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency)||14|
|HSPF (Heating Seasonal Performance Factor)||7.7|
Ground Source Heat Pump (Geothermal)
Sometimes called a "ground source" heat pump, a geothermal heat pump is the most efficient heating and cooling system available.
Geothermal heat pumps are systems that transfer heat to or from the ground and use the temperature of the earth to heat and cool. Outside temperatures may vary, but the earth’s temperature remains steady year-round and can be harnessed to make homes comfortable. Geothermal systems have a much longer lifespan than traditional HVAC systems, as the loops are buried underground, not exposed to harsh weather, and the units are housed indoors, with no exposure to water, snow and winds.
There may be a state tax incentive available.
