Are you looking for a most efficient way to heat and cool your home? Our licensed and insured technicians at House Depot are ready to help.
With carbon pricing and continuous increase of fossil fuel prices, many homeowners are taking advantage of available rebates, such as Canada Greener Homes Grant. They are switching from fuel burning heating systems such as conventional furnaces and boilers, to heat pump systems.
Unlike traditional fuel-burning heating systems such as gas furnaces and boilers, heat pumps don’t generate heat. Instead, they use a small amount of electricity to transfer thermal energy from one place to another. They efficiently heat your home in winter and cool your home in summer.
If you have an aged furnace and/or air conditioner, it’s time to make the switch and save. With rebates and grants available for you, switching to a new heat pump system seems like a correct decision to make.
There are a lot of options available in the market. Choosing the right system can be overwhelming. We are here to provide you with expert and honest consultation. We’ll show you all available options and help you choose the right system for your home.

A heat pump is part of an HVAC system of a house. It uses the refrigeration cycle to extract heat from one space (source) and release it in another place (sink). This system can provide both heating and cooling to a house.
In winter, a heat pump extracts heat from the outdoors and releases it inside your house and makes your space warm. In winter, the system reverses this process, extracting heat from your space and releasing it outdoors and cools your house.
There are different types of heat pumps, based on their heat sources, most common types in Canada are standard Air-Source heat pumps (ASHP), Cold Climate Heat Pumps (ccASHP) and Ground Source Heat Pumps (GSHP) also known as Geothermal Heat Pumps.
All systems consist of one outdoor unit and one or multiple indoor units, connected together with a refrigerant line.
In many ways, a heat pump functions the same as a conventional air conditioner. The refrigeration cycle is utilized by both, however, in air conditioners, the refrigerant only travels in one direction to cool your home but heat pump systems are utilized with some specialized components to reverse the flow of refrigeration, allowing the system to alternate between heating and cooling.
It’s a 2-in-1 systems; they heat your home in winter and cool it in summer. They are more efficient than traditional gas furnaces and boilers, and in the long run, more cost effective. This helps you save on energy bills.
Furthermore, heat pumps are a greener way of heating and cooling your home because they aren’t burning fuel to generate heat. You can also benefit from federal rebates when purchasing and installing a heat pump system.
They are generally safer to operate because they don’t burn fuel and produce fire, smoke and toxic gasses.
Heat pumps can be connected to the ductwork of the building to provide conditioned air to the entire home using the vents or ducts. These types of units are known as ducted systems. These are good options for homes with existing ductworks.
Additionally ductless heat pumps, typically consist of one or multiple indoor units (heads) connected to an outside unit (compressor). These are great options for homes without existing ductwork or heating and cooling of new additions to a house.
Standard Air-Source Heat Pumps efficiency decreases when the outdoor temperature drops below 40°F/-4°C. Cold Climate Heat Pumps efficiency decreases when the outdoor temperature drops below -13°F/-25°C.
A Hybrid system sometimes referred to as dual-fuel system, is a combination of an Air-Source heat pump with another heating equipment such as a gas-burning furnace and a smart control. In milder days, when the heat pump can heat your home efficiently, the system uses it and in extreme colder days that the heat pump can not efficiently heat your home, (when the cost of electricity it uses become more that cost of gas) the system stop the heat pumps and switch to furnace automatically.
The most efficient heat pumps available in Canada are Ground Source Heat Pumps (GSHP). They come with a lage initial payment. They are easier to install for new constructions but thy are trickier for retrofits.
The next most efficient heating and cooling systems are Cold Climate Air-Source Heat Pumps (ccASHP). Mitsubishi Electric is leading company in design and development of the cold climate heat pumps. Their Zuba units are one of the most reliable systems which are designed to work efficiently in extreme winters of Canada. These units are available in both ducted (Zuba Central) and ductless (Zuba Hyper Heat) and can operate in 100% of their efficiency in outdoor temperatures down to -22°F/-30°C. Most of these units are Energy Star certified and eligible for up to $6,500 rebates.
