Air-Source Heat Pumps
If you’re looking for a clean heating and cooling system that can be installed almost anywhere in endless configurations, air-source heat pumps are the versatile and efficient solution for your home.
Air-source heat pumps are a flexible, cost-effective and energy-efficient option for both heating and cooling your home.
An air-source heat pump system uses electricity to power a compressor and transfer heat using the refrigeration cycle. In winter, it transfers heat indoors; in summer, it transfers heat outdoors. Think of it as an air conditioner that can also work in reverse.
The system may distribute hot or cold air using your existing ductwork. Ductless options are also available.

Do you currently heat with oil, propane or electric resistance and are you interested in saving money on your energy bill?
ASHPS are an efficient heating and cooling solution, which could help lower your utility bills, even if you’re not ready to replace your whole heating and cooling system.
Do you want to add air conditioning to your home?
ASHPs are a great option for adding air conditioning while upgrading your heating system at the same time! For homes without existing ductwork, ductless heat pumps can provide heating and cooling to the entire home without the expense and disruption of installing ductwork.
Does your home have hot and/or cold spots?
No need to replace your whole system; a ductless air-source heat pump can be installed just in the hot or cold zone to provide extra heating or cooling.
Do you want more control over the temperature in individual rooms?
Ductless air-source heat pumps are often called “zoned home comfort solutions.” You can place indoor units in different zones of your home to heat or cool only the rooms you need.
Is your furnace or central AC system more than 12 years old?
Your system may be approaching the end of its expected lifetime. Before it fails, consider replacing it with an air-source heat pump system. You may be eligible for rebates from Mass Save to offset the project cost.
Do you have solar PV panels on your roof?
Air-source heat pumps run on electricity. If you already have solar panels on your roof that are generating more electricity than your home is currently consuming then you can use the electricity from your solar panels to run your heat pump, decreasing or even eliminating your heating and cooling operating expenses.
