When it comes to protecting our environment, wind and solar are the eco-friendly energy resources that tend to get our attention.
But the truth is there is more scalable high performance infrastructure that can deliver faster savings to homeowners and businesses while simultaneously reducing carbon footprints.
Heat pumps, working with thermal energy exchange networks, can deliver significant savings to families and business owners.
Heat pumps can provide environmentally friendly heat transfer between buildings that is highly efficient. They can also be used with water heaters to deliver highly efficient performance with a lower carbon footprint than traditional boilers.
When it comes to meeting the challenges of climate change, high performance technology can make a big difference in how we use energy in the future. The contractor technicians available through HVAC 911 can install heat pumps in your home or business to significantly lower energy costs, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve eco-sustainability for future generations.
The United Association of Journeymen and Apprentices of the Plumbing and Pipefitting Industry of the United States and Canada (UA) are the best trained and most highly skilled workers in the industry. Because of their rigorous training and certification specialties, UA workers represent the best contractors and deliver superior service in everything they do.
Check out this video on how UA contractors like those affiliated with HVAC 911 can deliver environmentally friendly high performance infrastructure to cut costs and help save the planet.
How a heat pump works
Technically, heat pumps do not create heat. They transfer heat, pulling heat out of the air or ground to heat a building. Similarly, they can also cool a building by removing interior heat into the outdoors. Heat pumps can effectively replace both furnaces and air conditioners. Because they simply transfer heat rather than use fuel to create it, heat pumps do not create carbon emissions.
Because heat pumps are highly efficient, they bring significant energy savings that effectively pays for the cost of a heat pump over the lifetime of a system. Air source heat pumps can reduce electricity usage for heating by up to 50 percent compared to electrical furnaces and baseboard heaters, according to EPA statistics.
How to save on a heat pump through community tax incentives and grants
Because Congress allowed them to expire at the end of 2021, there are no longer federal tax credits available for heat pump installation.
However, numerous state and local incentive programs are available to help make heat pump installation more affordable. The Database of State Incentives for Renewables & Efficiency (DSIRE) provides detailed information on state incentives and policies for heat pumps and other renewable energy incentives.
For example, Oregon has created a $15 million grant/rebate program for installation of heat pumps. The state of New York offers no-interest loans for the installation of heat pumps, as well as a tax incentive program. Mason County in Washington State offers up to $1,600 off the price of a heat pump.
