Advancements in Heat Pump Technology Can Mean Significant Savings for Hudson Valley Homeowners

An air-source heat pump can provide efficient heating and cooling for your home. When properly installed, an air-source heat pump can deliver one-and-a-half to three times more heat energy to a home than the electrical energy it consumes. This is possible because a heat pump moves heat rather than converting it from a fuel like combustion heating systems do.

Air-source heat pumps have been used for many years in nearly all parts of the United States, but until recently they have not been used in areas that experienced extended periods of subfreezing temperatures. However, in recent years, air-source heat pump technology has advanced so that it now offers a legitimate space heating alternative in colder regions.

Mitsubishi Electric is a trusted company offering many air-source heat pump options that focus on individual living spaces rather than treating every room the same, making the system more customizable. Heckeroth Plumbing and Heating of Highland, NY is a local Mitsubishi Diamond Contractor with the expertise to design and install the right system for your house to maximize comfort and savings.    

Reduce your annual heating and air conditioning costs 

Cold-climate air source heat pumps can replace your existing heating and cooling systems or provide supplemental temperature control in targeted areas of your home. Air source heat pumps consume far less energy than electric resistance, propane, or oil heating systems.

For example, when entire units are replaced in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions, the Northeast Energy Efficiency Partnerships found that the annual savings when using an air-source heat pump are around 3,000 kWh (or $459) when compared to electric resistance heaters, and 6,200 kWh (or $948) when compared to oil systems. When displacing oil (i.e., the oil system remains, but operates less frequently), the average annual savings are near 3,000 kWh (or about $300).

Stay warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer with cleaner air from state-of-the-art cold-climate air source heat pumps.

Incentives to switch to Heat Pump technology

Central Hudson has increased their incentives to decrease the cost to install air-source or ground source heat pumps in our effort to power the path to a cleaner future.

“Currently we are able to offer up to $1,600 per 10,000 Btuh* of heating capacity on the installation of a whole home heat pump system.  That can equate to a $10,000 incentive for a 2500 square foot home located in the Mid Hudson Valley area”, explained Jim Jacobini, owner of Heckeroth Plumbing and Heating located in Highland, NY.  

*Many factors go into determining the proper heat load/air-source heat pump size for your home, including home age, amount of wall and attic insulation, number of windows, attic fans, etc. The above examples are not exact depictions. If your house has less insulation and more windows, it may require a larger heat load/air-source heat pump. When you work with a certified clean heat trade ally, Heckeroth Plumbing and Heating they will help determine what size unit you will need for your home or business.
