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.

All heat pumps use refrigerant to transfer heat and only certified refrigeration mechanics should be installing or servicing your heat pump. While some companies in the Okanagan employ and dispatch technicians that hold a CFC certification, that only allows them to purchase and transport these strictly-regulated refrigerants.
When problems arise, select a journeyman like those at A1 Heating and Air Conditioning who have the training to properly install or repair your system correctly the first time.


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.
