Heat Pumps Are Energy Efficient And A Great Investment For Ontario Homes

The government and Enbridge have partnered to offer up to $7,100 in rebates to encourage the installation of heat pumps. To help homeowners upgrade heaters, install solar panels, and replace windows and doors, the Canada Greener Homes Grants program worth $2.6 billion over seven years was announced by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Natural Resources Minister Seamus O’Regan.

The versatility of heat pumps allows them to be used for both heating and cooling, so they can keep indoor temperatures comfortable all year round. As an air conditioner, heat pumps extract heat from the indoor air and release it outside, cooling the interior during the summer. In the winter, the heat pump reverses the process by extracting heat from the outdoor air (even in cold temperatures) and transferring it indoors to warm up the space. As heat pumps operate via a refrigeration cycle, they can provide both heating and cooling functions. However, the efficiency of heat pumps depends on a number of factors, including the outdoor temperature and the model.
