Heat Pumps are a great alternative to traditional heating and cooling systems. These energy efficient models harness the power of the outdoors. They work by converting outdoor air into hot or cool energy which is then pumped into your home via the ductwork.
Heat pump systems have incredible cost saving benefits. They have a high efficiency rate and you don’t need to pay to install and maintain separation air conditioning and heating systems. Since heat pump systems run on electricity, if you pair them with solar panels you are on your way to a net zero household.

Heat Pump Installations
Entrusting us to install your heat pump is a responsibility we do not take lightly. We will walk you through each step of the heat pump installation process and, once complete, we will show you how to operate and maintain your new heat pump system.
Heat pumps are a very good add on to your pre-existing furnace. A heat pump is able to cool your house in the summer, or heat it in the winter. They absorb the heat from the outdoor air in the winter and transfers the heat inside your house. When it is not too cold outside they are more efficient than natural gas, propane, or electric furnaces. As it gets colder outside the efficiency of a heat pump starts to drop until it is cheaper to run your “emergency heat” which would be your furnace either electric or another fuel source.
Mini Split Heat Pumps
Mini Split heat pumps are “ductless” heat pumps, which make them the perfect solution for spaces where changing the ductwork is not possible. Mini split heat pumps work the same way as standard heat pumps but rather than connecting the outdoor and indoor units via the duct work, the outdoor compressor is connected via a refrigerant line and an electrical cable for power.
Contact Air Wave to discuss whether a traditional or mini split heat pump is right for your space. Ductless mini split heat pumps are known for their small size, flexibility and easy installation.
