Yukon releases preliminary report on Cold Climate ASHP pilot project!

The Government of Yukon’s Energy Branch, with Natural Resources Canada, is coordinating a pilot project on cold climate air-source heat pumps and their performance in the Yukon’s cold climate.

This is an interesting report, as it is difficult to find a detailed analysis of actual field performance of cc-ASHP's in cold climate. We'll be keeping an eye out for the next updates on this study as it continues through this winter.

Let us know what you think!

An excellent article published by the Wall Street Journal about Heat Pumps.

An excellent article published by the Wall Street Journal about Heat Pumps. As consumers and governments aim to reduce their carbon footprints, heat pumps are growing in popularity as a way to cut emissions associated with the way we heat our homes.

Advocates say electric pumps don’t release particulate matter that can pollute the air inside and outside the home, are safer than having flammable fuels on-site and are relatively low maintenance.

“That first cost can be a real barrier,” said Rebecca Foster, Chief Executive of Vermont Energy Investment Corp., an energy-efficiency nonprofit that operates in 25 states and provinces across North America. “That’s why rebates and other financial incentives are needed.”

Heating your home with fossil fuels doesn’t just keep you warm—it creates emissions that warm the planet.

Heating your home with fossil fuels doesn’t just keep you warm—it creates emissions that warm the planet.
Home heating is Canada’s second-largest contributor to greenhouse gas emissions.

Because heat pumps transfer heat rather than generate it, they are way more efficient than conventional heating and cooling systems.
Besides being super-efficient, heat pumps also make your home more comfortable.
