Operating Cost: For the MA area heat pumps will cost you less per month to operate than a oil, electric or propane system.
Efficiency: Heat pumps are 400% efficient. For every 1 unit of energy, 4 units of heat energy are supplied.
Lifespan: Approximately 15 years.
Versatility: An electric heat pump also acts as an air conditioner to cool your home in the summer.
Convenience: Each heat pump unit’s temperature can be adjusted to suit each persons preference. Each room can have a different temperature!
Installation Space: Heat pumps require less space. Heat pumps are located outside and don’t require safety clearance since it’s simply transferring heat.
