HOW THEY WORK
Air Source Heat Pumps
Air source heat pumps (ASHP), often referred to as ductless mini-splits, are a clean technology you can use to both heat and cool your home. There are a number of economic, environmental and health benefits associated with installing air source heat pumps.
GROUND SOURCE HEAT PUMPS
Whereas air source heat pumps use the air as their heat reservoir, ground source heat pumps (GSHP) use the ground as their heat reservoir. Whether a ground source heat pump is right for you depends in large part on the site conditions of your home.
Heat Pump Water HeaterS
A heat pump water heater is powered by electricity to heat water for use with faucets, showers, and appliances. The heat pump unit pulls in air from the surrounding space, extracting heat from the air and using the refrigerant cycle to heat the water.
Solar Thermal SystemS
Solar thermal, also known as solar hot water, similarly collects solar energy using roof-mounted panels or tubes, but rather than converting that energy into electricity as with solar PV systems, solar thermal systems store the energy in water, heating it.
