Electric Heating and Cooling EquipmentLower your electric bills and make your home more comfortable, year round.
Air source heat pumps are used for different reasons, from heating and cooling a whole house to an individual room. Using air source heat pumps in the winter to complement your existing heating system can reduce your overall heating costs. The Sponsors of Mass Save train participating contractors on proper installation, such as duct sealing, airflow measurements, and appropriate sizing for your living space, to ensure equipment operates efficiently.
Effectively using Air Source Heat Pumps with your existing heating system can reduce heating costs for customers who heat their homes with oil or propane. By installing an Integrated Control, the system can automatically switch from heating with your Air Source Heat Pump to your conventional system based on preselected outdoor temperatures. This allows for maximum comfort and cost savings throughout the winter months.

What You Should Know
- Air source heat pumps can be installed by any MA-licensed HVAC contractor.
- As with any home improvement, it is good practice to obtain quotes from multiple contractors.
