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.”

Check out this article that talks about the HRAI report on GSHPs.

The study was done by Dunsky Energy + Climate Advisors.

“For many years, experts in the field have known that ground-source heat pumps (GSHPs) offer considerable energy cost savings to Canadians while reducing carbon emissions and contributing to Canada’s fight against climate change. This report clearly shows that, in addition to these savings, the technology has unique attributes that could deliver many billions of dollars in savings to the electricity grid,” said Sandy MacLeod, HRAI president and CEO.

The report found that a reasonably ambitious adoption rate of ground-source heat pumps over the next few decades could save Canadians between $49 and $148 billion in avoided electricity system development investment costs – investments that would otherwise be required as part of the country’s GHG emissions reduction plans.
