An Air-Source Heat Pump
works as a more efficient
central air conditioner during
the warmer months and also
provides supplemental heating
in the spring and fall.

IT CAN COOL, IT CAN HEAT
And it can save you energy and money.
An ENERGY STAR® Air-Source Heat Pump functions
as a hyper-efficient central air conditioner as well
as a source of supplemental heat. It can cool and
heat your home while using 72%* less electricity
than conventional air conditioners and furnaces.
HOW IT WORKS
AIR-SOURCE HEAT PUMPS ARE SUPERIOR TO
NATURAL GAS-FIRED FURNACES, OIL-FIRED
FURNACES AND ELECTRIC RESISTANCE
BASEBOARD HEATING SYSTEMS.
This process is reversed for the purposes of home heating. The
pump doesn’t create heat, instead it harvests heat from outside
air even as cold as 25 o, which it then transfers into your home
so you can run your furnace less. In fact, with an Air-Source
Heat Pump you may not need to run your furnace at all during
spring and autumn. A conventional furnace or other heat source
is still necessary during the coldest days of the year.
„ HIGHER EFFICIENCY
Air-Source Heat Pump owners are able to flip between heating
and cooling from the thermostat.
„ EASY ON THE ENVIRONMENT
The fundamental operation of an Air-Source Heat Pump is based
on moving heat to and from the outdoor air. When you need to
cool your home, it pulls the heat directly from your indoor air,
which it then pumps outside.
This eye-opening fact is especially important
considering heating and cooling account for more
than half the total energy consumed within a typical
household.
You can save you up to 30%* on your home cooling
expenses by using an Air-Source Heat Pump instead of
other conventional air conditioning units. They are also
200%-400% more efficient when it comes to home heating.
This is possible because it uses advanced technology to
transfer more energy than it consumes.
These units are super efficient and they cut down on the
depletion of limited natural resources and their extended
equipment life means less pollution associated with discarding
old units or parts and manufacturing their replacements.
„ A SAFE SOLUTION
Since Air-Source Heat Pumps operate without using an open
flame, they don’t create any products of combustion such as
carbon monoxide and other emissions. No need for venting—
or worrying.
An Air-Source Heat Pump can bring your home
efficiency where it matters most, as well as superior
comfort for you and your family.
„ QUALITY CONTROL
TYPICAL HOME ENERGY USE
Heating and cooling account for over
half of the total energy consumed by
an average household.
· 54% HEATING AND COOLING
· 22% ELECTRONICS
· 18% WATER HEATING
· 6% LIGHTING
COOLING Heat is transferred from indoor air to the outside.
400%
The heat provided by an Air-Source Heat Pump is more
moderate in temperature than air from conventional furnaces.
As a result, the air rises more slowly, distributes more evenly
and holds its moisture better. This makes for a better, more
natural warmth for you and your family to enjoy.
„ ADJUSTS AUTOMATICALLY
UP
TO
MORE ENERGY EFFICIENT
An Air-Source Heat Pump works with in tandem with your
conventional gas furnace for home heating. The pump
automatically selects the most ideal balance between
the two heating sources to constantly maintain the most
efficiently ideal heating combination based on your desired
indoor temperature. It’s like magic. Only real.
HEATING Outdoor warmth is transferred into the home.
The ability to switch between air conditioning and heating
is made possible thanks to a special valve inside the pump.
A pump also contains two sets of coils, a compressor and a fan
to circulate the cooled or warmed air, not unlike your refrigerator.
The ability for an Air-Source Heat Pump to switch between air
conditioning and heating is made possible thanks to a reversing
valve that changes the direction of refrigerant flow.
