How do heat pumps work?

The Energy Co-op has installed hundreds of heat pumps for Vermont homeowners. We install Mitsubishi products which we feel are the best units on the market in terms of quality and operational limits.  

Why do our members and customers choose Heat Pumps? 

Lower heating fuel use: Cut your natural gas, oil or propane use by up to 70% and reduce your carbon footprint.
Protection from future price spikes: Electricity prices are much more stable than oil and propane prices.
Lower heating costs: If you use propane, kerosene or fuel oil to heat your home, your overall costs will go down  after installing a heat pump. While your electricity costs will go up, your heating fuel costs will go down more than the increase in your electricity bill. 
Low-cost air conditioning: Heat pumps are twice as efficient as typical air conditioners, and much quieter than window units.
Comfort: Thanks to smart controls, heat pumps keep indoor temperatures within a comfortable range summer and winter.
Better indoor air quality: Heat pumps filter the air inside your home year-round.
Rebates: Efficiency Vermont as well as your local utility offers rebates of up to $2,000  to install heat pumps. For a complete list of rebates, click here.

    Last September, the Energy Co-op installed two heat pumps for us – one to heat and cool our downstairs living space, one to heat our hot water. We are very, very happy with both units and highly recommend them.
