Central Heat Pumps
Heat pumps are the least expensive way to heat your home using electric heat. They take heat energy from outside your home, and transfer it indoors rather than directly creating heat. This results in big savings when using electricity to heat your home.
Not only do they heat your home in the winter, they also function as your air conditioner in summer. In fact, if you need to replace your existing air conditioner, a heat pump can be installed instead of an air conditioner.
Heat pump systems usually have rebates available from the utility companies, and may even have low interest loans available through your electric utility.
The government of BC is also now offering incentives to switch to “greener” electric heating sources through their CleanBC initiatives.
