Check out this article about Heat Pumps and their demand.

There was a time when heat pumps were considered a novel technology. Nowadays things have changed, it is a common topic that is being discussed on television, radio, and mainstream press outlets.

Although the price tag on heat pumps is higher than the boilers, a group of people is still ready to get them installed sooner than later.

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.

The cost of installing a geothermal system depends on the type of system you choose.

You can have an open or closed loop and it can use forced air, hydronic baseboard or radiant floors for heating and cooling distribution within the building. The initial installation cost is higher than a conventional HVAC system but the operation costs are far lower.

Governments are now pushing fuel switching!

With renewable power generation surpassing coal in the United States for the first time in more than 100 years, the carbon intensity of electricity continues its dramatic decline. This means that technologies using electricity instead of fossil fuels—like electric heat pumps—are now often the lowest-carbon choice for heating a home and the water in it, as well as cooling it.
