What is a heat pump?

A ducted split heat pump is an inverter that can provide heating and cooling. This system replaces existing air conditioner condensers and evaporator coils. Paired with a gas furnace, this system will turn your home into a hybrid energy-efficient heating and cooling system.


5 reasons you should replace your AC with a new Heat Pump.


Air conditioning systems are a common feature in many homes in Canada, providing relief from the scorching heat of the summer months.

However, traditional air conditioning systems have some drawbacks, including high energy consumption and limited functionality. If you’re looking for an alternative that can help you save money on energy bills while providing year-round comfort, you should consider replacing your air conditioner with a heat pump.

Here are some reasons why you should consider replacing your air conditioner with a heat pump:

1. Heat pumps are more energy-efficient than air conditioners

Heat pumps are a more energy-efficient option for heating and cooling your home. Unlike air conditioners that rely on electricity to cool the air, heat pumps use refrigerant to absorb and transfer heat from one place to another.

In the winter, the heat pump extracts heat from the outdoor air and transfers it inside to heat your home. In the summer, the process is reversed, and the heat pump extracts heat from inside your home and transfers it outside, effectively cooling your home. This means you can save on your energy bills as heat pumps require less electricity.

2. Heat pumps can provide both heating and cooling

One of the most significant benefits of heat pumps is their ability to provide heating and cooling. While air conditioners only provide cooling, heat pumps can reverse the process to provide heating.

3. Heat pumps are environmentally friendly.

Heat pumps are an environmentally friendly option as they use less electricity than traditional air conditioning systems. This means that they produce fewer greenhouse gas emissions, making them a more sustainable choice. In addition, many heat pumps use more eco-friendly refrigerants than those used in traditional air conditioning systems.

4. Heat pumps are more comfortable.

Heat pumps provide a more comfortable indoor environment than traditional air conditioning systems. Unlike air conditioners that can create hot and cold spots, heat pumps provide consistent and even heating and cooling throughout your home. The main reason for this is variable inverter drives that can cool in many stages.

They also remove humidity from the air, making your home feel cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.

5. Heat pumps are quieter.

Heat pumps are quieter than traditional air conditioning systems, making them a great choice for people who prefer a peaceful indoor environment. They operate at a lower decibel level, which means you won’t be disturbed by the noise of your HVAC system.


Previously, purchasing a heat pump was not cost-effective for homeowners in the Greater Toronto Area.

With the new grant, homeowners can get this ultra-efficient system for less than a standard 13 SEER air conditioner.

The ultra-efficient Bosch IDS Premium Heat Pump provides 20.5 SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) for cooling and 10.5 HSPF (Heating Seasonal Performance Factor) for heating. This model qualifies for $6500 in rebates through the Canada Greener Homes Grant. When paired with a new Bosch Furnace and Coil.
