Ducted heat pumps
Man and woman playing chess

A ducted heat pump can deliver 1.5 to over 3 times more heat energy to a home than the electric energy it consumes. This is possible because a heat pump moves heat from the air rather than converting it from a fuel, like in combustion heating systems. This cycle can be reversed in the summer to cool your home. The mild Pacific Northwest climate provides ideal conditions for high-efficiency heat pumps.
